CAMPBELL, California—Market research firm Infonetics Research today released excerpts from its SBC Deployment Strategies: Global Service Provider Survey. The report, part of a series on the service provider VoIP and IMS market, captures a strategic overview from a wide range of service providers about applications using session border controllers, important SBC features, security issues, and which vendors are being utilized in the market.

Analyst Note
"Four of the most interesting findings in this year’s session border controller survey are that there’s growing interest in embedded SBCs, that SBCs are increasingly used to interconnect to other service providers, that fixed-mobile convergence and wireless access are solid growth prospects for new SBC deployments, and that service providers remain highly concerned about security breaches. SBCs have become a critical element in next generation voice networks. They have evolved into traffic managers and policy engines, taking on more and more functionality," notes Diane Myers, directing analyst for VoIP and IMS at Infonetics Research.
