Virtualized PoPs: From Concept to Reality

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta virtualization White papers Interconnect

Wholesale carriers are now under constant pressure to reduce cost, improve quality, flexibility, efficiency and global reach, all this while increasing speed of innovation. Not a small order. Virtualization and automation are two of the tools that are now available to carriers to enable a complete shift in their network deployment and operation, which should enable them to better compete with the new breed of telecom service providers.

This white paper provides the background on those technology and business changes and offers an insight into why wholesale carriers need to be reacting now to this latest opportunity before it becomes a threat to their livelihood.

ZIP Telecom case study

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta Case studies

ZIP Telecom’s network currently has four Metaswitch Perimeta SBCs, and the company is in the process of installing four more. ZIP Telecom handles 8,000 concurrent calls on its network and terminates tens of millions of calls per day.

“The pent-up demand for this kind of technology is unbelievable,” CEO Kevin Moniz says. “We’ve passed the early adopter stage for this kind of technology and are starting to move into mass consumption. The growth we’re expecting in the next two to three years is to grow to at least 50,000 concurrent calls.”

Perimeta SBC: Analyze datasheet

SBC (Session Border Controller) Analytics Perimeta Datasheets Interconnect

Perimeta’s network analytics is a key differentiator when compared to other platforms. Its analytics are fundamentally different, because they tell you why things happen. As Perimeta’s analytics are built into the SBC, you have automatic access to all signaling, even within virtualized datacenters where there are no obvious wires for probes to tap into. The time to simplify network diagnostics and troubleshooting is now. You need network diagnostics and troubleshooting capable of operating in a NFV environment today, before the industry as a whole finishes its move towards pure software implementations of network functions.

Perimeta SBC: Secure datasheet

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta Datasheets Interconnect security

SIP-based communications, and by default Port 5060, are increasingly becoming a target of mainstream attacks. With the advent of more advanced and sophisticated hacking techniques, coupled with the increase in VoIP traffic, ensuring the security of VoIP networks is emerging as a looming concern for Service Providers worldwide. This concern is intensified if the communications network is deployed in a virtual environment, as the security complexity is only further increased.

Perimeta SBC: Virtualize datasheet

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) virtualization Datasheets Interconnect

Perimeta is the future-proof SBC of choice as it enables Service Providers to migrate from the current hardware intensive architecture to the new telco software architecture. At its heart, Perimeta running on virtualized platforms is the same Perimeta software that runs inside our ATCA appliances and on COTS servers. Metaswitch’s Perimeta is the industry’s most advanced SBC platform. It enables a step by step transition to virtualization, using COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) server platforms (Dell, Cisco, HP, etc.) to start with, then migrates to virtualized Perimeta without MANO (Management and Orchestration), and finally upgrades to full blown cloud architecture with MANO.

Miercom 2013 report on Metaswitch Perimeta SBC

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta White papers Miercom report

Metaswitch engaged Miercom for an evaluation of the Perimeta Session Border Controller (SBC) for performance, scalability, reliability and security in various usage scenarios and deployment modes. The Perimeta SBC serves as an interconnection point between wireless or wireline peering carriers (Interconnect SBC or I-SBC) or between a carrier’s core infrastructure and the access network (Access SBC or A-SBC). It can be deployed in a next-generation network (NGN) or an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), including VoLTE, IPX and RCS deployments.

Session Border Control for RCS and RCS-e Services

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta RCS (Rich Communications Suite)

The GSMA’s Rich Communications Suite (RCS / RCS-e) of services (Joyn) presents an opportunity for service providers to stage an offensive strike against competing over-the-top (OTT) telephony applications.

RCS enables service providers around the globe to offer their subscribers instant messaging, presence and availability services - built around the globally-unique MSISDN - that are as ubiquitous as SMS is today. With cross-platform support that includes PCs, users can also share files, photos or video either inside or outside the context of a phone call. Most importantly, with an optional centralized network address book, RCS enables service providers to safely and securely maintain their customer’s contact list.

Session Border Control for Media Transcoding

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta Media transcoding

As next generation architectures are adopted across the wireline and wireless operator community, VoIP standards will play a far more prominent role in the delivery of end-to-end voice services.  Wireless and wireline networks have different characteristics and this has led standards bodies to select different codecs to run over those networks.

"Session Border Control in Access and Interconnect Networks" white paper

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta Fixed-Line Transformation SIP trunking Interconnect

Session Border Controllers (SBCs) are playing an increasingly critical role in two key areas of emerging next generation carrier networks. Access SBCs and Interconnect SBCs both manage and secure signaling and media functions in next generation architectures, such as those defined by the 3GPP LTE Advanced standards, but they have distinctly different responsibilities. The Perimeta portfolio of Session Border Controllers, from Metaswitch, is uniquely designed to meet these diverse requirements.

"A fresh look at session border control" white paper

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta White papers

A new solution for session border control is required that enables signaling and media capacity to be scaled independently of one another, and that delivers far greater scalability in the signaling plane. Such next-generation solutions for session border control are finally starting to become available. Service providers would do well to re-evaluate their SBC deployment plans so as to avoid over-investing in architectures that are ill-matched to their medium and longer term SIP services strategy.

"Session border control in the Cloud" white paper

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) White papers

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.
