Dialogic BorderNet 3000 Session Border Controller


The Dialogic® BorderNet™ 3000 Session Border Controller (SBC) is a compact, highly reliable security and session management platform for mobile and fixed VoIP networks. The flexible and standards-based BorderNet 3000 SBC supports both access and interconnect applications in a unique, fully redundant single rack unit (1RU) chassis.

By effectively protecting itself and the existing interconnect and access network infrastructure, the BorderNet 3000 SBC helps ensure that VoIP services are continuously available and that performance is unaffected by outside attack. Management is streamlined and operating overhead reduced because the 3000 SBC centralizes management operations in a single interface for policy-based routing and advanced call tracing as well as fault monitoring, configuration, accounting, performance, and security functions.

Key Features

Carrier-ready interconnect (I-BCF) and access (P-CSCF) SBC with five-nines availability in a single rack unit Provides high reliability while reducing capital and operational costs through its small footprint and low power requirements
SIP header and parameter manipulation Allows rapid addition of new service provider interconnects for streamlined service deployment
Integrated GUI-based local management Simplifies management and lowers management expense
Integrated local and remote session tracing capability for one or more platforms simultaneouslyProvides advanced troubleshooting while reducing capital costs since no special equipment or network configuration is required
RTP multiplexing between unitsReduces IP overhead and bandwidth consumption for VoIP sessions by up to 70% without sacrificing voice quality
