HPE SBC Global Traffic Software
In a wholesale Session Border Controller solution, the Wholesale Operator SBCs are connected to Wholesale Customers via IP networks. Each wholesale customer is assigned two SBCs, acting as primary and secondary. Health checking and failover are the responsibility of the customer and often, when a failure is detected, instead of failing over to the secondary SBC, customers choose to fail over to an alternate provider – resulting in lost revenue to the wholesale carrier. Furthermore, as each wholesale customer can only be supported by a single SBC, there are severe limitations on the scale of the service to any single customer.
HPE SBC Global Traffic Manager addresses these issues by introducing a distributed SBC load balancer to which wholesale customers connect. The HPE SBC Load Balancer, a carrier class, fully redundant solution, presents virtual IP addresses to wholesale customers and load balances calls among a set of SBCs per policy configured by the operator.
