Dialogic BorderNet Family of SBC Solutions Recognized by Gartner

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Dialogic, which provides solutions to mobile operators that help them enhance customer experience, announced it has been positioned as a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Session Border Controllers (SBC).

The recognition is attributed to Dialogic BorderNet family of SBC solutions, designed to help service providers securely connect diverse mobile and fixed networks for seamless and rapid delivery of combined multimedia offerings across their next generation, 4G/LTE, 3G and 2G network domains.

Dialogic's BorderNet family of SBC supports 600 signaling and media sessions per second and scales up to 32,000 simultaneous sessions, making it one of the most robust one-rack units on the market today, the company said.

The BorderNet 4000 SBC finds the best application in peering and access applications requiring high performance session control and management and supports the rapid deployment of mobile VAS and contact center applications.

“Service delivery is an important part of our strategy and we have strived to create a high-performing SBC product portfolio,” said Kevin Cook, president and CEO at Dialogic. “We are successfully helping service providers worldwide address the real world challenges associated with transforming their networks and services to all-IP, and will continue to execute our vision for an SBC that not only excites customers today but will provide them with the technical and operational innovation that’s necessary for future success.”

 BorderNet SBCs also brings significant reduction in operators’ CAPEX and OPEX.

Earlier this year, the SBC solution earned Performance Verified designation for overall performance, scalability and resiliency by independent test lab Miercom.

By passing the Miercom evaluation, Dialogic's latest member of the BorderNet family was able to successfully withstand a wide range of malicious attacks and extreme load conditions while maintaining a high level of performance.

In validating the new product, Miercom CEO Robert Smithers pointed to the SBC's advanced security features, highlighted by its real-time inspection, multi-level traffic management and adaptive overload controls features.
