Genband unveils new SR3 routing platform

To manage the routing of SIP-based communications

By CBR Staff Writer

Genband has unveiled a new SR3 Routing Proxy platform which is designed to manage the routing of SIP-based communications across mobile and fixed-line IP-IP and IP-TDM service provider networks.

Genband said that the new SR3 platform integrates with its portfolio of session border controllers (SBCs) and signaling controllers to offer higher traffic volumes, with call profitability and management control.

The company said that the new SR3 offers virtually unlimited performance with an N+1 cluster architecture that handles 250 calls per second on each server. By offloading routing functionality with the tools to manage routing decisions, the SR3 platform is expected to reduce manpower requirements and improve the efficiency of switching platforms.

Reportedly, the new SR3 also enables routing at the edge by allowing devices such as class 4 controllers and SBCs to route calls, thereby minimising port usage.

The company said that the new SR3 integrates with S3 SBC/GenView Real-Time Session Manager (RSM), as well as combined C3 Signaling Controller/G9 Gateway Converged Gateway, to provide routing support for international and domestic carriers while merging TDM to IP and IP to IP networks, the company said.

Mehmet Balos, chief marketing officer of Genband, said: “By enabling service providers to enforce the most profitable route for every call and free switch platform capacity, we estimate that SR3 customers will be able to gain additional margins as high as 10 – 12 percent by routing and ‘buying’ more discretely.”
