RELEASE OF EMBEDDED SBC FUNCTIONALITY

 

Berne, 17.04.2015

Aarenet new system software includes the release of embedded Session Border Controller (e-SBC) functionality. This feature enables a secure connection to different private or public networks. An embedded solution reduces the total cost of ownership compared to a separate SBC and it will simplify the management and maintenance of the total solution.

Daniel Jaggi, CTO of Aarenet: “We have several customer installations where different networks are aggregated into an Aarenet backbone system. An SBC separates the different networks from each other and provides a secure boundary against illegal access from external sources. We have decided to implement the SBC functionality in the core system as existing solutions are often more expensive and quite complicated to configure. A secure border between the public network (internet), private networks and the core system reduces the vulnerability of the systems against fraud to a minimum. An embedded solution developed as an integral part of the system increases the transparency of the system and is a significant benefit for the operation and support of such systems.”

The new functionality will be available for systems shipped with software release 6.0.
