Session border controllers (SBCs) are powerful network devices that protect, secure, simplify and standardize real-time, SIP-based multimedia communications including Voice over IP (VoIP) and video. If your business uses a VoIP network or is thinking about SIP trunking to reduce costs, you probably either own an SBC already or are thinking of buying one right now. If your enterprise wants to reduce up to 75% of its current telephony costs, it can do that by implementing VoIP and SIP trunking services – but you’ll need an SBC to start saving.
