cyLogistics (Booth 307) is highlighting this week at TELECOM 05 its TrueLine session border controller, a fully managed device for Internet telephony service providers.
Every Internet service provider knows that they must adopt VoIP or perish but implementation of these capabilities can be daunting, says Don Witt, president of cyLogistics. The TrueLine SBC streamlines the process by providing a single point solution that includes all of the necessary hardware and software to support these capabilities at a price point that makes it affordable to even the smaller Internet telephony service providers.
The TrueLine SBC is designed to enable secure and seamless interconnection of carriers networks with ITSPs and customer enterprises. The product gives service providers a complete hardware and software solution to simplify and handle efficiently connections between IP network borders, including peering borders, access network borders, enterprise borders and data center borders.
The solution tightly integrates signaling and media control functions into a single system. The TrueLine SBC Peer provides 100 percent support of SIP and supports IP PBX solutions from major carriers, including Cisco Systems Inc. and Nortel Networks. In fact, cyLogistics tested the TrueLine SBC on a broad range of major VoIP networks to ensure compatibility. To meet the needs of customers using Level 3s network, the SBC supports NAT and meets Level 3 InterOp, Operational and E911 requirements. Currently, the device is in service on the network of Level 3 Communications Inc., the largest VoIP provider in the world.
Virtual point of policy enforcement, meanwhile, allows users to extend policies to third-party platforms and networks. Authorized calls can be connected with any endpoint and applied to either inbound or outbound calls. This function puts SBC policies in control of the breadth of system parameters, including call rate, call capacity and (in an upcoming release) bandwidth usage.
The controller can be installed readily, with almost no customer interaction, through cyLogistics systems network operations center. The SBC units are monitored closely by the NOC to provide piece of mind for both the ITSP and the carrier.
The TrueLine SBC is available on standard Intel-based hardware as either NEBS or non-NEBS compliant. The carrier versions of the device can scale for use from 100 to more than 100,000 sessions. The TrueLine SBC is priced starting at $12,999 and up based on the number of calls in progress required.
