02. Session Border Controller in a NFV Cloud.
Presented by Ashish Jain, GENBAND.
SBC’s are critical network elements to secure and manage real time IP communication sessions. SBC’s are typically deployed in an integrated architecture with signaling and media functions closely coupled in physical appliances (“the box”). However, the rapidly growing and changing nature of multimedia communications in the cloud is forcing SBC architecture to evolve to better meet the new demands imposed on the network.
Service providers and enterprises aim to leverage huge capital and operational savings by evolving SBCs to Network Function Virtualization (NFV) infrastructure, and enjoy the benefits of elastic scalability and better resiliency. Today’s session explores the fundamental tenets of virtualization, NFV, and what you need to know to transition from a “box” paradigm to running next generation SBC software in a cloud. Other key topics will include virtualization vs NFV – what’s the difference?; How to treat session signaling and media in a virtualized world; and Media and transcoding processing in the virtualized world.
