Intelligent Edge - Enterprise Session Border ControllersDeploying voice communications over the internet can create quality and security issues that don't normally exist with traditional phone systems. To overcome these issues, Intelligent Edges are deployed on the customer network edge to ensure successful VoIP implementations. VoIP service providers deploy an Intelligent Edge in the form of an enterprise session border controller (eSBC) to improve voice quality and visibility in the customer environment, supporting both SIP trunking and hosted unified communications.
Ribbon Communications’ EdgeMarc 2900e Intelligent Edge is ideally suited for hosted-PBX or SIP-trunking applications. The solution supports bi-directional data rates of up to 1Gbps and up to 300 concurrent calls. The EdgeMarc 2900a delivers the same functionality of the EdgeMarc 2900e while adding support for FXS and FXO connections for fax lines, overhead paging systems or a PSTN lifeline.
