Communications as a whole is experiencing rejuvenation. Growing expertise in leveraging the cloud for development and innovation is resulting in an exciting era to cover the space, and not to mention easy to use, robust and high-performing solution. A player in the virtualization space, Sonus, expanded its line of SBCs this week with the announcement of its Sonus SBC SWe Lite.

“After introducing the Sonus SBC SWe, we saw a real need for a complementary virtualized solution that focuses on small and medium sized enterprises,” said Umar Kabir, manager, Product Management, Sonus. “The Sonus SBC SWe Lite provides that option for customers and is built on an industry proven, feature-rich code base.”

The new release is a virtualized e-SBC development for use with Office 365 cloud PBX deployment as well as Skype for Business. It offers virtual Customer Premise Equipment (vCPE) for firms seeking to migrate to a virtual environment. The user-friendly GUI is the same as the SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 (recent recipients of 2016 Unified Communications Product of the Year award from virtual-pbx), and leverages a configuration wizard to have you up and running as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Anurag Patel, CEO, Techland Systems International Limited noted, “The GUI is incredibly intuitive and extremely easy to navigate, and in less than five minutes we were able to provision the SBC SWe Lite to allow successful setup and placing of calls to/from the system.”

Created with SMEs in mind, the SBC SWe Lite is easily scaled through remote activation of a simple license key, alleviating the need for on-premises technicians in addition to productivity disruption. Aside from its flexible nature, Sonus is known for security, and with the SBC SWe Lite comes Mercom security certification – from video and VoIP to IM and additional collaboration features, security is ensured.

It seems virtual is the new black; it slims down the need for on-premises equipment and staff, and in doing is saving some serious coin. Have you taken your network virtual?
