Cataleya, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Epsilon Global Communications group and a major player in IP networking innovation, recently introduced a session border controller to cater to the needs of IP services from network to applications.
Company officials confirmed that the product has already been installed in Epsilon’s global network and is being trialed by service providers both in the US, Europe and Asia. The trials are expected to be completed by summer 2014.
The new SBC offers service providers full end-to-end quality of service, visibility from the transport to applications layers as well as an intuitive user interface to facilitate ease of operation.
SBC boasts of simple, intuitive operation and management system, which is supported by a state-of-the-art GUI.
In a press statement, Andreas Hipp, CEO at Epsilon Global Communications group, said, “There wasn’t an SBC that could deliver what we feel will define the future of the IP ecosystem and that’s true end-to-end QoS, visibility into application performance and simplicity. We decided we had to build it ourselves. With Cataleya, we have matched the engineering skills of our Silicon Valley-based technology team with our expertise in global networking.”
High performance and scalability, network solution rather than standalone equipment, SAF – Signaling Adaption Framework, Integrated policy engine, service brokering and orchestration engine are some of the other highlighting features of Cataleya’s SBC.
“Many IPX providers are limited to guaranteeing QoS on MPLS networks and that is limited to the transport layer. What Cataleya offers is QoS and visibility right to the application layer and this means better application performance and overall a better quality of experience for end users,” says Hipp. “This is faster, easier to use and directly enhances what a service provider can offer its customers.”
