Ribbon Communications, a global provider of communications software, IP, and optical networking solutions to service providers, companies, and critical infrastructure sectors, has announced that its Session Border Controllers have been certified for Google’s new SIP Link.
Customers can use Google SIP Link to link their existing carrier to Google via a network of certified Session Border Controllers (SBC). This adaptability enables the use of existing telecommunications infrastructure while maintaining continuous service with the user’s current carrier.
The extensive enterprise SBC portfolio from Ribbon, which is installed in service provider networks all over the world, provides businesses with call encryption, secure telecom connectivity to help prevent fraud and unauthorized access, as well as protection for the larger enterprise data network from malicious users.
These SBCs have undergone extensive testing to ensure that they offer strong SIP security and compatibility, including with traditional PBXs, contact centers, analog devices, SIP devices, and hundreds of different telecom carriers.
Session Border Controllers SBC 5400, SBC SWe, SBC SWe Edge, SBC 1000, and SBC 2000 are among those that have received Google Voice SIP Link certification.
Tony Scarfo, EVP & General Manager of Ribbon’s Cloud & Edge Business Unit, commented: “SIP Link is an important initiative in the ongoing quest to make cloud-based voice services more broadly available to organizations and their workers. We’re proud to partner with Google Cloud to showcase our ability to support cloud-based telephony solutions that enhance employee productivity anywhere in the world.”
