VoIP Switch - Sansay's SBC Interoperable with BroadSoft's BroadWorks Platform

January 26, 2012


Sansay (News - Alert), a provider of high performance IP communications infrastructure and partner of Global Convergence Solutions (GCS), has successfully completed interoperability of its session border controller (SBC) solution – Sansay VSXi –  with BroadWorks voice application server provided by BroadSoft (News - Alert).

The interoperability of the VSXi with BroadSoft follows the successful completion of interoperability testing of Sansay's SPX session controller with BroadWorks in 2007.

The development is significant for the industry because it enables service providers to offer enterprises compelling and cost-effective hosted IP solutions. The interoperability between Sansay VSXi and BroadWorks enables highly scalable and secure delivery of business, consumer, and wireless IP communications services, company officials said.

Sansay VSXi helps communications service providers take a “services-led strategy as they migrate their networks to IP,” the company said in a press release.

 "Service providers want session control infrastructure that lets them more quickly enter new markets and respond to customer needs," said Dave Walters, vice president of marketing,  Sansay, in a statement. "The VSXi brings flexibility that helps service providers grow – helping them cost-effectively add seats, launch new service offerings, and turn up new points of presence." 

The session control applications from Sansay VSXi complement BroadWorks in the delivery of hosted IP communications services, including hosted PBX (News - Alert), SIP trunking, residential VoIP, and cloud-based unified communications.  The SBC solution can be deployed in high availability, geo-redundant configurations meeting the performance demands of BroadWorks operators.

"We are pleased that the Sansay VSXi has completed interoperability with BroadWorks and believe this will speed time to market for our service provider customers that want proven, interoperable hosted unified communications solutions," said David Bukovsky, vice president products, BroadSoft, in a statement.

 The Sansay VSXi offers higher levels of scalability, flexibility, and reliability for session handling.  With the added interoperability with BroadSoft, the solution provides operators with added confidence as they deploy the VSXi for session control applications.   

 As a part of Sansay's continued support of the BroadSoft service provider ecosystem, Sansay is offering free evaluation systems and support to qualified customers for a limited time, the company said.

According to BroadSoft, enterprises are “increasingly supporting a diverse mobile workforce and a challenging range of mobile platforms and are rapidly prioritizing the expansion of their unified communications capabilities.”

A recent survey from BroadSoft has confirmed the fact that there is an unmistakable shift to mobile-only communications. According to 25 percent of enterprise IT decision makers participated in the survey, desk phones will be replaced by mobile phones within two years.

Recently, cloud-based telephony service provider Digerati announced its intention to create a next generation architecture and, accordingly, Digerati deployed Sansay's VoIP session control system, which will serve as the foundation for the company's next-generation technology platform. The deployment of Sansay's VSXi system creates operating efficiencies, while maximizing the quality of service for Digerati's global VoIP services and SIP trunking applications, according to company officials.  

Deploying the Sansay solution was the first step in establishing Digerati’s new architecture and securing the GCS (News - Alert) Dynamic Route & Rate Management Solution as its operational system to support its global session-based network was the next. For more, click here.
