Mediant 800 E-SBC

The Mediant 800 E-SBC provides Perimeter Defense as a way of protecting companies from malicious VoIP attacks; mediation for allowing the connection of any PBX and/or IP-PBX to any Service Provider; and Service Assurance for service quality and manageability. Designed as a cost-effective appliance, the Mediant 800 E-SBC is based on field-proven VoIP and network services with a native host processor, allowing the creation of purpose-built multiservice appliances, providing smooth connectivity to cloud services, with integrated quality of service, SLA monitoring, security and manageability. The native implementation of SBC provides a host of additional capabilities that are not possible with standalone SBC appliances, such as VoIP mediation, PSTN access survivability, and third party value-added services applications. This enables enterprises to utilize the advantages of converged networks and eliminate the need for standalone appliances.

Why Enterprise Session Border Controllers?
Session Border Controllers were traditionally deployed at the border of service provider core networks. Both Enterprises and Service Providers have now realized the essential need of enterprise-based session border controllers, located at the customer premises for addressing the security, mediation and SLA requirements of the Enterprise. The Mediant 800 E-SBC provides an open and flexible architecture for all Enterprise deployments, acting as the demarcation point between an Enterprise and a SIP Trunking provider, an enterprise and a hosted Unified Communication service provider or an enterprise and other organizations for direct VoIP calling.

Enterprise Session Border Controller and Security Services
AudioCodes’ Mediant 800 E-SBC is designed as a secured VoIP platform. Enhanced Media Gateway security features include encryption schemes, such as SRTP for media, TLS for SIP control, IPSec for management, and Denial of service protection. A fully featured Enterprise-class Session Border Controller provides a secured voice network deployment, based on the embedded Back-to-Back User Agent (B2BUA).

Integrated PSTN connectivity
AudioCodes’ Mediant 800 E-SBC is built upon a highly interoperable VoIP Media Gateway, which can be delivered in several pre-defined configurations: a single E1/T1/J1 trunk and up to 4 BRI ports (8 calls) or 12 analog (FXS/FXO) ports. In addition, the Mediant 800 E-SBC provides enhanced dialing plans and voice routing capabilities along with its SIP to SIP mediation, allowing business customers to enjoy the benefits of SIP Trunking services, IP Centrex connectivity, Unified Communications, as well as flexible PSTN and legacy PBX connectivity to VoIP.

Vast mediation capabilities and proven interoperability
In a world of growing choices of voice coders and SIP flavors, enterprises and services providers alike must ensure interoperability for successful integration and service delivery. The Mediant 800 E-SBC, with its extensive media processing capabilities, supports a wide range of voice coders as well as SIP normalization, fax handling, gain control and numerous additional media processing features.

As a direct evolution of the field-proven and highly interoperable Mediant family of VoIP media gateways, the Mediant 800 E-SBC provides unparalleled interoperability, enabling mediation between an extensive list of IP and TDM-based PBXs and SIP Trunking providers.

Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE)
AudioCodes Mediant 800 E-SBC supports enhanced IP Quality of Service (QoS) enforcement and Quality of Experience (QoE) Monitoring. Leveraging AudioCodes SEM, a QoE monitoring and management system, the Mediant 800 E-SBC enables service providers and multi-site enterprises to assess networks, certify VoIP deployments, and measure, monitor, track, and help optimize the QoE of their VoIP services. AudioCodes’ Mediant 800 E-SBC also supports enhanced IP Quality of Service (QoS), including Ethernet frame tagging (802.1p), IP packet marking (Diffserv), and traffic shaping.

Survivability Services
Customers served by a centralized, SIP-based IP Centrex server (or branch offices in distributed enterprises) may face service discontinuities in case of WAN failure. The integrated SAS (Stand- Alone Survivability) feature of the Mediant 800 E-SBC enables internal office communication between SIP clients (e.g., IP Phones), along with PSTN fallback, in case of disconnection from the centralized IP Centrex server or IP-PBX.

Value-Added Services by an Open Platform for 3rd-Party Applications
AudioCodes’ Mediant 800 E-SBC extends the flexibility of a standalone SBC with the built-in Open Solution Network (OSN) server option (based on an Intel processor). Independent Software Vendors and OEM customers can utilize this integrated, general purpose server to host their own applications (e.g., IP-PBX, IVR, Call Center, Conferencing, and more).
