Vault Recording: TBD

Moving communications services to the cloud has many challenges, including bandwidth management, traffic routing, reliability, security, and co-existence during the move and beyond. In the past, you had to depend on your UC-as-a-service (UCaaS) provider to work with your specific brands of PBXs or IP-PBXs in order to make this work properly for you and your users.

Now, that problem is solved by using the SIP-based capabilities of session border controllers (SBCs). In addition, most SBCs can provide many benefits beyond cloud connectivity. These include dial plan management, connectivity for analog devices without requiring a PBX license, routing options for business continuity and calling flexibility, and much more.

In this session, you’ll learn about the important role SBCs can play in maximizing your control over communications services when moving to the cloud.


* Get a grounding on how SBCs simplify connectivity, assure reliability and security, and smooth the migration to and co-existence in cloud communications environments.
* Find best practices for SBC network design.
* Discover how to start with or upgrade to SBCs for success with UCaaS and other cloud communication services.
