Sangoma Intros Stand-Alone Vega 400 SBC

The new SBC model provides connectivity between disparate IP networks and SIP trunking devices while ensuring security, mitigating vulnerabilities and enforcing VoIP policies. Sangoma points to the SBC’s ability to provide call access control, secure network logon and encryption of media and signaling, among various intermediation and core VoIP capabilities designed to ensure proper call handling and call quality.
The stand-alone Vega 400 also provides a number of VoIP functions like adaptive jitter removal, comfort noise generation and silence suppression, QoS statistics reporting and hardware-based echo cancellation. The new model can even facilitate call media handling when necessary.
“Businesses of every size rely on VoIP communications, and there is a growing demand among customers for cost-effective solutions that address the potential exposure of network vulnerabilities at inter-network junctures, such as connections to SIP trunking services,” said Simon Horton, director of product management for Sangoma.
“The field-proven reliability and ease-of-use inherent in the Vega Series extends to this new SBC device. It not only seamlessly and securely connects the business to the SIP trunking network, but also uses Vega’s popular “quick-config” feature, which greatly simplifies the entire installation process.”
The announcement comes just a week after Sangoma rolled out two other SBC appliances, the Vega 100 and the Vega 200, designed specifically for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that want to enjoy the benefits of IP communications.
Similar to previous Vega iterations, the new appliances support a wide number of audio codecs as well as several call routing, maintenance and survivability features.
The enterprise SBC market grew 60 percent in 2011, and is expected to continue its boon well into the next decade, according to Infonetics Research (News – Alert). The firm anticipates that the ESBC market will generate revenues of $527 million by 2016 as enterprises recognize the growing need for security, interoperability and network border traversal.
