Enterprise Session Border Controller (E­SBC)

 ORACLE DAT A SHEET Enterprise Session Border Controller
(E­SBC)
Oracle’s Enterprise Session Border Controller (E­SBC) connects disparate
Internet Protocol (IP) communications networks while mitigating security
threats, curing interoperability problems, and ensuring reliable communications.
It protects and controls real­time voice, video, and Unified Communications
(UC) as they traverse IP network borders.

KEY FEATURES Overview
Available in software and appliance configurations, the product is highly scalable and
includes an industry­leading feature set:
•
Strong security. The Oracle E­SBC protects IP telephony and UC infrastructure,
services, and applications, and it ensures confidentiality, integrity, and availability. It
prevents fraud and service theft, and guards against malicious attacks, system
overloads, and other service­affecting events.
•
Easy interoperability. The Oracle E­SBC provides extensive signaling and media
control features to help businesses overcome interoperability challenges that commonly
occur when interfacing with public IP network services. It also performs protocol
interworking and dial plan management for integration with legacy systems.
•
Assured reliability. The Oracle E­SBC ensures Public Switched Telephone Network
(PSTN)–like availability and service quality for IP communications. It enforces service
quality, balances loads across trunks, and reroutes sessions around interface failures
to optimize network performance, circumvent equipment and facility problems, and
ensure business continuity.

Oracle’s session delivery infrastructure
enables enterprises and service
providers to manage the many
challenges in the delivery of IP voice,
video, and data services and
applications. Service provider solutions
are deployed at network borders and in
the IP service core to help fixed­line,
mobile, wholesale, and over­the­top
service providers optimize revenues
and realize long­term cost savings. In
the enterprise, session delivery
infrastructure solutions seamlessly
connect fixed and mobile users,
enabling rich multimedia interactions
and automating business processes for
significant increases in productivity and
efficiency. The following Oracle products are part
of the session delivery infrastructure: Enterprise Session Border Controller •
Interactive Session Recorder
•
Application Session Controller
•
Enterprise Operations Monitor
•
Enterprise Communications Broker
•
WebRTC Session Controller

• 500–16,000 Acme Packet 6300
• 4,000–80,000 The Oracle Enterprise Session Border Controller is specifically designed to address the unique
security, interoperability, and reliability challenges businesses often encounter when extending
interactive voice, video, and UC across IP networks. The Oracle E­SBC also helps enterprises
contain voice transport costs and overcome the unique regulatory compliance challenges
associated with IP telephony.
The Oracle E­SBC supports distributed, centralized and hybrid SIP trunking topologies.
Flexible survivability features help maintain communications in remote sites and stateful high
availability protects service provider trunk connections. To simplify operations in multi­site
networks, all E­SBC models run common software. An embedded GUI features a real­time
dashboard that monitors key performance indicators with drag­and­drop, point­and­click
simplicity.
