MAYNARD, Mass. -- Covergence®, the leader in SIP security and management solutions, today unveiled the Eclipse access-edge Session Border Controller (aSBC). The Eclipse aSBC, an enhanced version of Covergence's Eclipse, is a new type of Session Border Controller (SBC) built to scale, secure and manage performance at the access edge.

Traditional SBCs enable VoIP peering between a small number of well-known and trusted service providers, but today's access edge requires the ability to connect large numbers of untrusted users to a multitude of real-time services. The Eclipse aSBC is specifically designed to address the challenges of the access edge by combining traditional session-border-control functionality with comprehensive security features and management tools.

"As business organizations grow their real-time applications, they find that scaling, managing and controlling the access edge poses its own special set of challenges and unique requirements." said Tom Valovic, Program Director for VOIP Infrastructure, IDC. "For instance, the access edge has to process registration traffic, manage registration floods, secure user connections, protect the service from intrusions and attacks, enforce user-defined policies, encrypt and de-encrypt content and manage thousands-to-millions of active endpoints - with negligible latency, jitter and loss."
