Acme Packet targets increase in IP services with 40Gbps Session Border Controller

on . Posted in News Analysis

Acme Packet has announced a major upgrade to its Session Border Controller (SBC) portfolio, with the launch of the Net-Net 6300 appliance. Acme Packet said that its latest product addresses two key developing operator requirements in the sector – for increased throughputs and capacities driven by certain applications and for flexibility of architecture and deployment in the network.

The SBC product sector addresses the need for operators to be able to maintain session control of IP services as they cross network borders - something that it is forecast to increase as operators roll out more IMS and SIP-based services such as VoLTE, video calling, RCS, unified communications and other IP and OTT services.
