    Session Border Controllers (SBCs) remain a critical part of enterprise communications deployments in which SIP trunking is an important component, as well as those where multivendor IP-PBXs serve the enterprise. They also remain an important security component. But in a world where cloud communications are increasingly becoming an option and IP-PBXs near retirement age, will SBCs continue to be as important? How will the role and capabilities of the SBC evolve as enterprise communications deployments evolve? And how should your procurement strategy for SBCs be affected by the larger changes in the communications environment over the next 12-24 months? This session will help you plan the future of your SBC strategy, and will provide valuable perspective on where the SBC is headed as an element of the enterprise environment.


    • How have Session Border Controllers changed over the past 12 months? How are trends like virtualization affecting the SBC? Are SBCs becoming pure software products?
    • Are SBCs continuing to evolve in terms of feature/function?
    • Are SBCs required in a cloud communications deployment? How should enterprises with a cloud roadmap view the SBC's future in their infrastructure? Where does the SBC fit in a hybrid cloud-CPE strategy?
    • Is multi-vendor internetworking an important feature to look for in an SBC, or is the SBC more important as a security device?
