Advanced Security Features

SBCs provide a first line of defense against fraud and malicious attacks in service provider networks. The BorderNet 4000 SBC helps protect network integrity and service quality from being compromised by providing a set of layered security capabilities that include the following:

  • Customizable signaling and media topology hiding
  • Built-in firewall capabilities
  • Dynamic access control lists and automated rate limiting to protect against DoS attacks
  • Real-time inspection of message syntax and semantics
  • Protection against malformed messages
  • Encryption including TLS, IPsec, SRTP and HTTPS
  • Media related security including pin-hole management, Rogue RTP detection and bandwidth control
  • Adaptive overload controls for assuring the delivery of high priority traffic

Real-time Dashboard, User Management and Reporting Capabilities

The BorderNet 4000 SBC’s WebUI includes a real-time management dashboard that provides ready access to analytics such as traffic statistics, platform status, and a comprehensive set of platform and traffic reports to help manage the performance of system itself and its peering connections. The BorderNet 4000 SBC WebUI provides role-based user administration to secure and control access to various system views involving configuration and provisioning of the SBC. Configuration and provisioning tasks related to the BorderNet 4000 SBC are performed through the highly intuitive WebUI interface.

In addition to OAM&P functions, the WebUI of Dialogic’s BorderNet 4000 SBC also provides feature-rich analytics and reporting. Alarms are displayed along with security statistics that can provide insight on the performance of peering partners through inbound and outbound metrics like Answer-Seizure Ratio (ASR) for SIP and H.323 peers. The analytics available from the BorderNet 4000 SBC’s WebUI include traffic statistics, usage summary, and a comprehensive set of performance and traffic reports to help manage network and service activity. Additional tools are included in the WebUI to make license management, data archive, historical reporting, regulatory compliance and network troubleshooting easy and streamlined.

Powerful and Easy-to-Use Management, Interworking and Configuration Tools for Low TCO

Service providers need to securely connect their networks with other operators to deliver services to their customers; however, not all SIP implementations are the same. Dialogic has developed the SIP Profiler for its BorderNet family of SBCs – including the BorderNet 4000 - to help reduce the complexity of this process. The SIP Profiler is a powerful configuration tool that can reduce the time and effort to implement interconnection in multi-vendor, multi-application environments across networks with different SIP behaviors.

The SIP Profiler can be used to define behavior at the ingress and egress ports of the BorderNet 4000 SBC and enable customized routing to help optimize and control SIP message flows. The SIP Profiler is accessed through the BorderNet 4000 SBC’s WebUI, or through the use of XML scripts. Types of operations that can be performed using the SIP Profiler include:

  • Add, modify or delete SIP headers, SIP bodies and SDP parameters and adaptively impact message sequence and flows
  • Store information from header fields for later access
  • Inspect SIP messages for specific content
  • Use customized response codes when, for example, rejecting messages

A Media Profiler extends the core features of the powerful SIP Profiler framework to the SDP, media attributes, and the codecs used in the bearer plane. The Media Profiler provides the ability to:

  • Control and reorder the offer codec list
  • Control media attributes
  • Manage ISUP, QSIG and other non-SDP message bodies

The BorderNet 4000 SBC WebUI simplifies operational tasks associated with configuring and maintaining the integrity of a peering environment. The profile-based provisioning capabilities through the BorderNet 4000 SBC WebUI allows users to define service, session, and media profiles that describe the behavior of a connected endpoint. With profile-based provisioning, a user can configure a new peering endpoint with a set of already-defined security, session, and media parameters with ease, thereby reducing not only the time to provision an interconnection, but also the system knowledge required. These powerful interworking and configuration features can help lessen TCO by reducing management complexity and accelerating service delivery.

The BorderNet 4000 SBC includes both IP level and session level tracing, media capture and recording. It also includes SOAP/XML and bulk loading of interface configurations along with a northbound API for integration with existing BSS/OSS applications. System software upgrading can be easily accomplished through the WebUI, with the ability to roll back upgrades if needed.

Increasing ARPU through the Delivery of Business and Residential Services

The BorderNet 4000 SBC supports features that help service providers looking to rapidly deliver revenue generating IP-based business and residential voice services including hosted PBX, hosted contact center applications and unified communications. The BorderNet 4000 SBC supports capabilities like SIP registration pass through, SIP trunking and PBX interworking, Far-end NAT traversal, and policy-based routing and resource control to help service providers reliably deliver VoIP services.

The BorderNet 4000 SBC is compliant with SIP Connect 1.1 for SIP trunking applications. SIPconnect compliance helps service providers, value added resellers and enterprise organizations in reducing the time required for integration, testing and turn-up and also allows services to be rolled out quickly and efficiently. In addition, media transcoding configurations are also available to support any-to-any connectivity of voiceand video-based services. The BorderNet 4000 SBC has also been validated by BroadSoft for interoperability with its BroadWorks suite of VoIP application services that integrate video, fax, voice and email communications for businesses and consumer customers.
