The Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the vision, leadership, and thoroughness that are characteristics of the prestigious award.

“Having the NBS5200 recognized as the Communications Solutions Product of the Year is a validation of our product vision,” said Bob Bradley, product line manager for security solutions at Sonus Networks. “As service providers and enterprises began deploying advanced applications – including unified communications, video, and instant messaging – they increased the burden on SBCs, which began as simple, security-focused elements. While their original purpose remains, much has changed that requires a new class of networked SBCs. The NBS5200, the first of these networked SBCs, is a direct result of over a decade of Sonus’s intellectual expertise and continuing commitment to innovation.”
