The Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) emerged almost 20 years ago. Enterprises then had doubts about the applicability of the function as it was considered unsafe and time-consuming. Although VoIP was more cost-effective option compared to wireless or wired communication, the quality and security concerns remained.
The improved networking and quality of devices has appreciated the demand for VoIP services but securing the communication still remains a challenge. The increased number of VoIP calls and collaborative sessions on various public and private networks has made it imperative for the service providers to maintain security.
Session Broader Controllers (SBCs) are the solution for securing the VoIP and also maintaining its quality. Using the Enterprise Session Border Controller (E-SBCs) it’s possible to secure the most mission-critical VoIP systems to connect with different hubs or Unified Communication (UC) technology. There are different types of SBCs available that can be used for different types of purposes.
SBCs act as a guard on the gate that only lets certain signals to pass through securing the network. Enterprises can use the E-SBC to manage the SIP traffic access for the VoIP, video or instant messaging. The E-SBC secures the connection between the UC services and the enterprise network maintaining the required agility.
