Increased adoption of VoIP technology by carriers, and its integration within different segments of the telco business, has seen the emergence of VoIP islands globally. Service providers must interconnect their networks with partner networks for exchange of voice traffic. Session/border controllers are designed to allow VoIP carriers to inter-connect carrier, enterprise, and residential networks at the IP layer. These network elements are key to NAT and firewall traversal, along with resolving interoperability, interworking and security requirements critical for large-scale deployments of VoIP. This panel discussion will feature the industry’s experts discussing the current state of session border control.
