Italtel to Unveil 'Cloud-Inside' SBC at MWC
MILAN -- Italtel today announced the availability of NetMatch-S, the world’s first Cloud-inside Session Border Controller (SBC), which uses Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies to help operators move towards the Telco in the Cloud model.
NetMatch-S manages and secures voice, video and multimedia IP sessions at the border of Enterprises and Service Providers’ networks, enabling network interoperability thanks to its distinctive interworking features.
Virtualization and cloud infrastructure for communication services offer service providers advantages in operational cost reduction and time to market service distribution to the final customer.
“Our NetMatch-S is the first “cloud-inside” SBC because it was fully designed and developed in a cloud environment,” said Stefano Pileri, CEO of Italtel. “Maximum flexibility, dynamic configuration and scalability to respond to customers’ needs are the key features of this product which is designed for differentiating service solutions and strongly reducing OpEx.”
With its “Lite Edition”, NetMatch-S is the first virtualized SBC to be qualified by Microsoft for interoperability with Lync 2013 and is in production on virtualized environments. It has already been deployed for both User Network Interfaces (UNI) and Network Node Interfaces (NNI) by enterprises and service providers in EMEA.
