Comprehensive Approach to Cloud Communications 
With a Cloud-optimized SBC, PSX and EMS, service providers can instantiate virtual policy and routing control as well as virtual session management in a tested Sonus NFV Orchestration Partner environment. In addition, Sonus delivers solutions for geographic redundancy, high availability and load balancing across multiple virtual network functions (VNFs) in a cluster, providing robust solution reliability.

Microservices Architecture Maximizes the Benefits of the Cloud 
By taking advantage of its SBC's fundamental design, Sonus has separated signaling, media processing and transcoding into individual components. As customers migrate RTC to the Cloud, Sonus' architecture enables independent orchestration and scaling of each SBC microservice based on network traffic. Unlike solutions which only provide redundancy for signaling, Sonus' microservices architecture is truly redundant, delivering high availability for all three microservices.

Integrated Analytics Enhances Solution Management
With this release, Sonus supplies an embedded data agent in each VNF instance that communicates traffic and utilization information to an integrated data warehouse and analytics solution. This integration enables automatic on-demand VNF management, optimizes resource utilization at the microservices level, and provides advanced monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities.

"There are vendors promoting myths when it comes to real-time communications, claiming that since their products are virtualized, they work seamlessly in the Cloud," said Kevin Riley, Sonus CTO and SVP, Engineering and Operations. "Sonus focuses on addressing the practical realities of deploying Cloud-optimized products.  We architected a robust solution that runs seamlessly in the Cloud and delivers scale, reliability and feature capability on par with our hardware-based offers. Unlike our competitors, Sonus provides customers with a complete, real-world solution, making real-time communications in the Cloud a reality."

"Our research indicates that layer 4-7 services are prime candidates to be converted to virtual network functions (VNFs) in carrier networks," said Scott Raynovich, VP of Research and Analysis, SDxCentral. "Sonus has done a great job architecting its Cloud-optimized solutions, helping carriers to quickly provision and scale new services, accelerating their move to the Cloud."
