The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Embodiments disclosed herein include systems, methods, and software that reduce processing burdens on host soft switches.

Responsive to receiving a query from a soft switch in the first packet network for a session between the first and second packet networks, the query is processed to select a first border controller for the session from the plurality of border controllers based on the operational states of the plurality of border controllers. A response is transferred to the soft switch indicating the first border controller." The patent application was filed on Oct. 14, 2009 (12/578,684).
