Sonus Session Border Controllers
The Company's portfolio of SBCs addresses security and interworking requirements for small, medium and large businesses, as well as regional and global communications service providers. It offers various SBC products, including Sonus SBC 1000, Sonus SBC 2000, Sonus SBC 5110, Sonus SBC 5210, Sonus SBC 5400, Sonus SBC 7000, Sonus SBC 9000, SBC VX and Sonus SBC Software edition (SWe).
Sonus GSX9000 Open Services Switch
The Sonus GSX9000 Open Services Switch (the GSX9000) bridges IP and time-division multiplexing (TDM) networks by converting any type of voice signal into IP packets and transmitting those IP packets over a data network. It then converts whatever type of signal is necessary to be deposited back onto non-IP networks and delivers such signal to its intended destination. It supports multiple voice encoding schemes used in circuit switches and delivers various other voice compression algorithms.
Sonus T7000 Intelligent Switching System
The Sonus T7000 is a Class 5 end-office softswitch that provides residential and business voice services and is a next generation IP-IP Multimedia Processing Engine. Using the T7000, operators can transform their networks from older Nortel DMS, Lucent 5ESS and other switches to an IP-based Class 5 softswitch.
Sonus Diameter Signaling Controllers
Sonus offers its Diameter Signaling Controller, the Sonus DSC 8000. The Sonus DSC solution is also available as a software-only product, DSC SWe, which can be run on common-off-the-shelf hardware and in virtual instances.
Sonus Signal Transfer Points
The Sonus Signal Transfer Point (STP) acts as the switch/router in an SS7 signaling network, managing and controlling all signaling traffic. The STP's array of network interfaces provide network planners the ability to design and implement SS7 network architectures that meet both the physical and business requirements of their companies. These interfaces include TDM SS7 Links, Asynchronous Transfer Mode SS7 Links, High Speed HSL Annex A SS7 Links and the IP-based SISGTRAN Links.
Sonus PSX Policy & Routing Server
The Sonus PSX Policy & Routing Server (the PSX) is the central routing and policy engine for its softswitch and distributed SBC solutions. The PSX plays an integral role in its network deployments, and provides both the call routing intelligence and policy intelligence for SIP sessions across the network.
Sonus WebRTC Services Solution
Web Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) is a technology that enables Web browsers to participate in audio, video and data communications. A WebRTC-enabled browser or mobile application allows users to place a call, participate in multi-party video and audio conferencing, and engage in screen sharing collaboration. The Sonus WebRTC Services Solution includes Sonus WebRTC Gateway (WRTC) and Sonus WebRTC Software Development Kit (WRTC SDK).
Sonus Network Management Solutions
The Company offers its customers a range of products to help manage and integrate its networked solutions with internal provisioning and billing systems, including Sonus NetScore network performance analysis tool, Sonus Element Management System and Sonus DataStream Integrator. It offers Sonus Element Management System for centralized management and provisioning of Sonus network elements. It offers Sonus DataStream Integrator for integration of call data records with back-office billing and accounting systems.
Virtualized Mobile Core (VMC) Solution
The Company's VMC is a virtualized IP-based multi-media services (IMS) services core that enables deployment of voice and messaging services, including VoWiFi and Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE). The VMC is a carrier-grade product that combines various IMS functions into one virtualized software solution, including Telephony Application Server (TAS); IP Short Message Gateway (IP-SM-GW); Service Centralization and Continuity Application Server (SCC-AS); IP Multimedia Service Switching Function (IM-SSF); Media Resource Function (MRF), and Serving Call Session Control Function (S-CSCF).
