TSBC5000 – Session Border Controller

TSBC5000 Session Border Controller

 

The TelcoBridges TSBC5000 is a carrier-grade session border controller designed for Network-to-Network interface (NNI) and peering deployments. Software upgradeable from 25 to 5000 sessions, the TSBC5000 is the most cost-effective session border controller for service providers currently available on the market. Depending on ordering configuration, it also supports up to 2744 transcoding sessions without any external hardware required.
