SBC header 1118Session Border Controller

The SVI-SBC is a state-of-the-art, cloud enabled Session Border Controller providing comprehensive network edge security for fixed and mobile service providers and large enterprise customers.

SVI-SBC Virtualisation

The SVI-SBC session border controller is deployed in virtual environments worldwide enabling operators to benefit from the reduced costs and benefits that a cloud native component can deliver them.

The SVI-SBC can be enabled as a Virtual Machine (VM) on existing infrastructure or as a fully blown Virtual Network Function (VNF) in an AWS or Openstack cloud infrastructure.

virtual

VIRTUAL

Delivered as Virtual Machine (VM) on industry standard servers in a
data center environment using a hypervisor - i.e. VMware.

cloud vnf

CLOUD

Delivered as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) in AWS
or OpenStack cloud infrastructure. 

 

sbc autoconfig virtualisation v2Auto Configuration

Open product management interfaces allows for auto-configuration by an orchestration platform. Whether orchestration is physically delivered via an XML, SQL, HTTP, TELNET etc interface, the SVI-SBC session border controller has been designed from the ground up to deliver remote operation, administration and maintenance (OA&M) control.

 

Distributed Architecture

 

sbc distributed architectureThe SVI-SBC is architected on micro-services principals separating the signalling and media planes into distinct software components.

The signalling plane provides a high availability core enabling centralised routing and control across the network.

Multiple media planes can be instantiated dynamically to meet bandwidth demands and / or distributed across different territories to match latency requirements and improve network resiliency.

Elasticity

This architecture enables on-demand scaling in a virtual environment delivering full network elasticity.

Dynamic Load Balancing

Dynamic load balancing insures optimum network performance with network load shared evenly across network components.

Network Resilience

The distributed network architecture insures network resiliency coupled with high availability options as standard that insure carrier grade reliability.

 

SIP Signalling Manipulation Engine | SSME

MESSAGE MANIPULATION

  • Powerful regular-expression based manipulation of message header and contents allowing removal, creation and replacement

 

sbc ssme redirectsREDIRECTS

  • Acts as redirect server by redirecting messages to another service
  • Can be used to provide load balancing / throttling

sbc ssme filteringFILTERING

  • Black List / Whites based on Message Header and contents

 

sbc ssme routingROUTING

  • Message Header and contents
  • Reattempts
  • Load balancing profiles
  • External Lookups

 

 

IMS Support | A-SBC + I-SBC

sbc ims supportThe SVI-SBC provides next generation support for secure interconnect to IMS based networks. Delivering comprehensive VoLTE support allows the SVI-SBC to be deployed in the core of an IMS network or provide IPX / Roaming Hub interconnect.

The SVI-SBC provides a flexible architecture allowing providers to consolidate functionality and resources at both the access and interconnect interface through support for both the A-SBC and I-SBC modes.

 

svi asbcA-SBC
The Access-SBC sits on a service providers access borders, i.e enterprise locations, internet, 3G/4G mobile and fixed line.

 

Supports IMS functions:

  • P-CSCF: Proxy Call Session Control Function
  • E-CSCF: Emergency Call Session Control Function
  • BGCF: Breakout Gateway Control Function
  • AGW: Access Gateway
  • ATCF: Access Transfer Control Function
  • ATGW: Access Transfer Gateway

svi isbcI-SBC
The Interconnect-SBC sits on a service providers interconnect borders, i.e. the borders between service providers networks.

 

Supports IMS functions:

  • IBCF: Interconnect Border Control Function
  • IWF: Interworking Function
  • I-BGF / TrGW: Transition Gateway

 

 

 

High Availability

svi sbc redundancy

  • 1+1 Dual Plane Worker/ Hot Standby
    - Database and signalling information checkpointed between planes
    - Replicated hardware and software
  • Maintain SIP calls in answer on failover
  • Eliminates single points of failure
  • Five Nines uptime (99.999%)
  • Single IP service address using VIP technology
  • Real time Maintenance upgrades
  • RTP Failover and Re-Invite

 

Real-time Fraud Prevention

sbc fraudprevention

Squire Technologies real-time Fraud Prevention Gateway, the SVI-FPG, can be enabled in the SVI-SBC to:
  • Combat SIP fraud in real-time
  • Proactively block, tear-down, transfer and redirect fraudulent calls
  • Seamless interface to upstream firewall and monitoring applications
  • Deployed in non-critical path of network
  • Rapidly provision network lookups aimed at identifying fraudulent traffic

 

The annual loss globally to the Telecoms industry from fraud is currently estimated by the CFCA (Communications Fraud Control Association) to be $29.2 billion.

 

Lawful Intercept

Active or Passive Intercept support for:

  • 3GPP/ ETSI LI Standards
  • SIPREC ( RFC 7245 )
  • CALEA
