Sonus Networks, Inc. (SONS) announced that Peerless Network has purchased the Sonus NBS5200 Network Border Switch to expand the capacity of its IP peering aggregation points. In a press release presented on PR News Wire, Sonus claims that Peerless Network added the NBS5200 to its existing NBS9000 deployment because of the product’s scalability and network capacity performance as well as its minimal footprint requirements in the data center. In addition, it is the highest-density, highest-scalability Session Border Control (SBC) solution in its class with integrated transcoding and media interworking as well as native support for IPv6 and IPSec encryption.
“We have completed our certification process on the NBS5200 and are very pleased with its overall functionality and performance results,’ said Jim Brewer, Vice President of Voice Services for Peerless Network. ‘We look forward to meeting the requirements of our rapidly expanding customer base and service portfolio with the deployment of this strategic IP platform at Peerless.'”
