AudioCodes Virtualized Session Border Controller Certified for Hewlett Packard Enterprise OpenNFV Ecosystem

AudioCodes, a leading provider of converged voice solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to transition to all-IP voice networks, today announced that its Mediant Session Border Controller Virtual Edition (SBC VE) has been certified as a virtualized network function (VNF) in the HPE OpenNFV network function virtualization (NFV) reference architecture. HPE OpenNFV is aimed at providing agility, speed and time-to-market advantages for communications service providers (CSPs) launching new services.

As competition from over-the-top (OTT) providers grows, CSPs around the world are adopting NFV as it enables them to launch new revenue-generating services rapidly and more cost-effectively than using traditional hardware-based systems. HPE is a leading NFV platform and orchestration provider that offers 3rd party vendors the ability to join its OpenNFV ecosystem program and certify their VNF applications on the HPE platform. Having achieved HPE OpenNFV certification, AudioCodes virtualized Mediant SBC VE can be included in HPE's NFV-based solutions for service provider customers who require access, peering and v-CPE enterprise SBCs for the hosted communications services they offer to their customers.

"AudioCodes' virtualized Mediant SBC is an important addition to the HPE OpenNFV ecosystem," commented Werner Schaefer, VP Sales & GTM, Communications Solutions Business, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "With NFV solutions gaining global traction among service providers, the Mediant SBC VNF enables them to deliver agile, reliable and secure hosted enterprise UC services."

"We are delighted that our Mediant SBC VE has achieved certification from HPE and become an element of the HPE OpenNFV ecosystem," stated Yehuda Herscovici, VP Product at AudioCodes. "Leveraging the field-proven technology underlying our existing SBC portfolio, the Mediant SBC VE provides all the necessary reliability, interoperability and security that hosted communications service providers need in a virtualized format, enabling smooth integration into NFV environments."
