Global Enterprise Session Border Controller Market: Overview
A session border controller (SBC) is essentially a hardware device or software application which controls the way phone calls are initiated, carried out, and terminated on a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) network. Phone calls are also called sessions. An SBC performs the task of a router between the enterprise and carrier service, making it possible for only authorized sessions to pass through the connection point (border). The SBC defines and monitors the quality of service (QoS) status for all sessions, so that callers can communicate with one another and emergency calls are delivered correctly and given utmost priority.
