Increased Unified Communications (UC) adoption brings challenges of network vulnerability in terms of malware and virus attacks, which is why many businesses look to an Enterprise Session Border Controller (SBC) to keep their communications secure. As a member of the Oracle Partner Network (OPN), Tata Communications is working with Oracle to free clients from the need to implement and manage their Enterprise SBCs.
The importance of the Enterprise SBC in a UCaaS setup
UCaaS offers the unified approach to communication that is critical for business success by converging various communication channels into a single, integrated platform. It has several elements working in conjunction, of which Enterprise SBCs are an important unit. The Enterprise SBC is a specialised network device that is designed to provide security, reliability, interoperability, scalability, quality of service, and compatibility between different VoIP networks, including PSTN and UCaaS solutions. It helps to protect the VoIP network from threats such as Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and provides Quality of Service (QoS) features to ensure that voice calls are of high quality. Additionally, it helps to ensure compatibility between different VoIP networks, so that users can make and receive calls.
While Enterprise SBCs are an integral part of the UCaaS, enterprises have to deal with certain complexities in implementing and managing these. These challenges are varied in nature.
That sounds like – and is – a lot. Choosing the right UCaaS solution for your needs is important. Connecting this to your network with an Enterprise SBC is essential, to enable the UCaaS solution to offer agility, scalability, security, easy interoperability with communications of existing applications and systems and simplified administration, providing visibility and control, and ease of management.
The good news is, a service provider that partners with your UCaaS provider can take care of all of this, leaving you free to focus on your business. Tata Communications GlobalRapide Managed Services is a game-changer in your journey to UCaaS.
Vivek Kar, Global Product Management Head for Collaboration and Voice Solutions, Tata Communications says, “Our partnership with Oracle in various spheres is part of our mission to simplify business for our clients. This partnership for the Enterprise SBC as a service is one that can pave the way for organizations to achieve business success without having to worry about tactical processes like managing the Enterprise SBC.
