As businesses continue to seek innovative ways to reduce costs and implement Unified Communication (UC) applications to improve employee efficiency within their organisation, more and more are making the transition from their current, trusted and proven TDM-based telephony architecture to a SIP-based network.
However, the big bang approach is often the least desirable, by connecting your existing PBX to a SBCs you will achieve interworking between systems. SBCs allow both TDM and SIP trunks to communicate simultaneously and, as a result, businesses are able to migrate their entire infrastructure at one time or piece-meal, without having to completely upgrade all the equipment in their network at once.
An Enterprise Grade SBC Solution provides:
- Analog Migration –any-to-any connectivity between analog and TDM, H323 and SIP devices, enabling enterprises to rapidly migrate analog phones onto SIP-based networks
- Media Interworking –allows existing TDM-based solutions (Fax, IVRs, DTMF) to effectively and reliably communicate over SIP
- SIP Interworking between PBXs –provide TDM to SIP and SIP to SIP interworking between your existing PBX installed base as you transition your network. When an inbound call comes into the SBC the decision on which platform to route the call can be based on an Active Directory lookup, number dialled or call forking(when both platforms are called simultaneously)
- Centralized dial plans -no need to change dial plans and routing on every PBX in the network.
