Sonus Improves Security with Latest Network Border Switch

By Stefania Viscusi, TMCnet Assistant Editor

In a bid to help service providers better meet the security needs faced by today's IP-based networks, Sonus Networks (News - Alert) has released a new Network Border Switch.
Sonus' Network Border Switch (NBS (News - Alert)) is an IP-based solution that helps network operators protect the integrity of their network including advanced traffic control, session based firewall functionality, and media handling.
The NBS is available for both the GSX9000 Open Services Switch and the GSX4000, and provides a flexible solution that helps meet security needs within an IMS framework.
New features include increased protection against denial of service and RTP protection as well as enhanced attack detection, notification and diagnosis. The new release also features better monitoring, tracing and statistical analysis tools so that operators can better and more quickly evaluate service level performance as well as better respond in security events.
Addressing the ways in which network security features are enhanced beyond SBCs, Steve Edwards, chief marketing officer, Sonus Networks, pointed to three market drivers; including mergers acquisitions, expanded presence and new offerings and consumer demand for service that connect to public internet.
"Sonus' Network Border Switch allows our customers to address these challenges by delivering a complete, natively IP peering and security solution," commented Chambers.
