Session border controller

Perimeta Session Border Controller

The perimeter of your communications architecture is only as strong as its weakest link. Beyond the boundary of your managed infrastructure lie many threats to the continuity of your service offerings and to the integrity of your network. Perimeta is the first VNF (Virtualized Network Function) carrier-class Session Border Controller (SBC) proven to deliver the security performance demanded of new cloud environments, as well as large-scale real-time communications services, while providing a level of visibility before unseen by networks operators.


As network operator and enterprise communications infrastructures transition to all-IP, all cloud, all software services, so will the Session Border Controllers need to integrate into these environments. Perimeta is the first NFV (Network Function Virtualization) based SBC in the industry, and has been already deployed as a VNF in several carrier networks. For those service providers that demand full flexibility, Perimeta operates today in all NFVI environments (hypervisors, private and public clouds).

Perimeta enables Service Providers to migrate between current and emergent communications architectures. Because Perimeta was architected as a pure software solution, it can run on an ATCA chassis and on COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) server platforms (Dell, Cisco, HP, etc.). This will be of particular interest to service providers interested in creating and managing SBCs through a farm of cheaper commodity servers, who don’t necessarily need the full flexibility of a virtualized cloud solution.

Metaswitch takes an expansive view of this primary SBC function. It’s not only about protection, it’s also about peace of mind. The Perimeta product portfolio has been designed for high performance while under heavy attacks. Perimeta software contains specially developed low-level packet handling code, enabling malicious traffic to be discarded at wire speed without impacting the throughput of legitimate traffic. Even under extreme overloading scenarios, Perimeta continues to operate at its best — processing valid session requests and forwarding traffic without compromising quality of service or security. Proven to process 100% of the calls under attack, and with accolades from Tier1 Service Providers, Perimeta can meet your stringent security demands without compromising on throughput or capacity.

Session border control in the Cloud

In the Session Border Controller space, standards have been in place for several years that support the separation of the signaling plane from the media plane – using H.248 as the control protocol between the signaling border element and the media border element. Most current SBCs are based on an integrated architecture that handles signaling and media in the same box, but there are exceptions, such as the Perimeta SBC product from Metaswitch.
