Frisco, TX, April 23, 2013– GENBAND, a leading developer of multimedia and cloud communications solutions, today unveiled the QUANTiX™ QFlex Enterprise Session Border Controller. Optimized for branch offices and small to mid-sized businesses, this on-premise software-based SBC is deployable on common off the shelf (COTS) hardware or can be virtualized together with other applications on a platform. QFlex extends the breadth and scalability of GENBAND’s SBC portfolio to enable carrier-grade security, interoperability and session control for businesses of all sizes.
“Issues relating to IP communications security, interoperability, system complexity and service assurance are commonplace for operators and enterprises alike. They demand intelligent SBCs and border gateways that ensure a seamless communications experience,” said BG Kumar, President of GENBAND’s Multimedia Business Unit. “Our new QFlex Enterprise SBC creates a SMART EDGE for the enterprise, providing unique interoperability technology to manage multi-vendor PBX environments – while ensuring security and session management.”
The software-based QFlex, which includes more than 60 built-in IP PBX vendor profiles, uses a unique and modular approach to solve multi-vendor interoperability issues, helping to reduce the deployment time of SIP Trunking services from months to weeks. GENBAND’s QUANTiX QFlex resolves IP-PBX-related interoperability challenges by providing a demarcation point that protects both the service provider and enterprise sides of the connection by utilizing flexible adaptors to secure and normalize traffic. For enterprises, QFlex allows for seamless interworking of multi-vendor PBXs across different branch offices, routes traffic in IP-enabled call centers, and allows remote users and satellite offices to securely connect to corporate IP communication systems.
“SIP Trunking services continue to drive demand for on-premise SBC solutions, which provide essential security and connectivity services between the enterprise and service provider network,” said Greg Collins, founder of market research firm, Exact Ventures. “By fortifying its QUANTiX QFlex with broad interoperability with enterprise communications equipment, GENBAND is focused on eliminating potential integration and operational issues that can negatively impact eSBC deployments. This addition to GENBAND’s QUANTiX portfolio creates a more complete end-to-end offering for enterprises deploying SIP Trunking and Unified Communications solutions.”
