SINGAPORE (IndoTelko) – Ribbon Communications Inc. announced another milestone to its market-leading session border controller (SBC) solutions set by expanding its public cloud investment support on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The enhanced public cloud offering provides service provider and enterprise customers the ability to improve network agility and lower operational costs. The company’s virtualized network functions are ideal for seamlessly transitioning to public cloud architectures.
Ribbon’s public cloud support on Amazon Web Services (AWS) includes its Session Border Controller Software Edition (SBC SWe) and Policy and Routing (PSX) application.
The Ribbon SBC SWe is also now fully integrated with Amazon Web Services’ Cloudwatch service, offering complete visibility and monitoring of SBC application resource utilization. The company’s public cloud investments also include integration with open source software toolkits from industry leaders such as Red Hat and Terraform.
For customers who want to retain control and deployment of their core network functions, Ribbon’s comprehensive suite of virtual network functions (VNFs), which include the SBC SWe, PSX, Element Management System (EMS) and Virtual Network Function Manager (VNFM), offer seamless integration via a single solution and a simple path to transition to a private cloud environment.
The Ribbon VNFM, which has already been deployed by a tier-one operator, also delivers advanced lifecycle management via open APIs to ensure elastic scalability and the ability to dramatically reduce the cost of monitoring, scaling and upgrading VNFs.
“Our customers are increasingly moving their network functions to the cloud, whether it is to gain efficiencies of scale, to be more agile in their ability to deliver services faster to their customers, or to improve their offerings,” said Kevin Riley, Chief Technology Officer for Ribbon Communications. “We understand that some customers want to leverage the public cloud, while others want to leverage the private cloud and some may want to deliver their services in a hybrid fashion. We have smartly designed our portfolio to support our customers, regardless of the path they choose, and we are firmly committed to continually investing in innovative, best-in-class software-based solutions that will help them deliver secure, real-time, on demand, next-generation communications services in any cloud environment.”
Riley added, “We already have active customers leveraging our technology on AWS.”(es)
