WESTFORD, Mass. – Sonus Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:SONS, news, filings), a global leader in securing cloud and real-time communications, announced today that its latest Policy and Management release is now generally available. With this solution release, Sonus provides a consolidated framework for management, session control, billing mediation, and analytics functions across legacy and next-generation communication networks. Key updates include:

Cloud: Customers can now deploy the Sonus DataStream Integrator (DSI) and NetScore products in OpenStack-based cloud environments. These two products complement the existing cloud-native portfolio inclusive of the Sonus Session Border Controller (SBC), PSX Centralized Policy and Routing Engine (PSX), Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) and Element Management System (EMS).
Intelligent Session Control: This release enables customers to use the Sonus PSX to intelligently route traffic based on the attributes of the session. For instance, customers can route audio-only calls differently from bandwidth-heavy video calls, providing greater network and cost control.
Network Analytics: With this release, customer insight into network capacity, bandwidth utilization and traffic patterns has been improved. Sonus NetScore has access to new peak traffic statistics in the GSX and provides new analytics for average and peak trunk utilization, and trunk group bandwidth utilization. This helps customers plan capacity extensions accordingly.
Gateway: With ongoing investments in the Sonus GSX, customers can now optimize media path for SIP-SIP backhaul, allowing these customers to lower network costs by freeing up media ports on the intermediate gateway.
“As customers move to the cloud, Sonus is advancing these customers’ migration with OpenStack support for the DSI and NetScore products,” said Ram Ramanathan, director, Product Management, Sonus. “But just as important, this solution release provides customers with key enhancements to our Policy and Management portfolio, demonstrating our commitment to help customers move from legacy to next-generation networks. Customers can trust that Sonus’ full portfolio of hardware, virtual and cloud-native solutions will allow them to complete their network transformation seamlessly.”
