FREMONT, CA: Sonus, provider of real-time communications, enters into strategic alliance with Dorado Software to integrate their networking solutions. The partnership will bring the power of Sonus’ Session Border Controller Software Edition (SBC SWe) to Dorado’s Redcell product suite. This will back service providers in managing, activating and orchestrating SBC SWe through Redcell platform.
“It is critical for service providers to operate and automate their networks to maximize value and improve service delivery. With Redcell, service providers can successfully extend visibility and management across legacy and virtual elements, which now include Sonus’ virtual SBCs,” states John J. Grana, Vice President, Business Development, Sonus.
The SBC SWe with same functions as of SBC 5000 series and SBC 7000 extend advanced functional characteristic features. The solution aids in flawless migration of appliance-based networks to NFV/Cloud solutions. This entrusts the customers with a freedom to scale their networks in a cost effective way according to the demands required for a secure, real-time voice and video traffic.
On the other hand, the Redcell product suite offers a centralized management system with seamless automation and service orchestration layer which eases out network management and boosts service deployment in Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). The platform also incorporates OpenStack to bring virtual network functions (VNF) under the full fledged resource management.
“Bringing Sonus into our partner ecosystem extends our value proposition for service providers, many of whom have deployed or are looking to deploy virtual SBCs in their network,” says Chris Simon, Vice President, Service Providers and NFV Business Unit, Dorado Software. “Our shared commitment to open standards like ETSI NFV and OPNFV, and joint involvement with solutions such as Juniper Network’s Contrail cloud platform, mean that service providers can deploy Sonus-Dorado solutions without fear of broader integration issues in the future.”
