Perimeta is a new breed of session border controller (SBC), capable of meeting the fast developing access and interconnect requirements of wireline and wireless networks.
As these networks continue their relentless drive towards all-IP, LTE, IMS and RCS, messages are increasing and traffic patterns are changing. Data volumes are intensifying and the relationship between signaling and media is becoming increasingly divided. New applications are increasing the load on signaling backbones while multimedia endpoints are stretching the capacity limits of transport and session-layer elements. Meanwhile, the rapid adoption of these applications is resulting in more malicious attacks and theft-of-service attempts that exploit network vulnerabilities.
A new class of session border controller is required: purpose-built to completely protect your network assets while independently scaling the signaling and media functions.
Perimeta meets these many challenges with capabilities that deliver sophisticated network security, advanced management of packet throughput under all load conditions, extensive protocol interworking and normalization and complete packet analysis for in-depth problem isolation and repair.
Perimeta transparently performs these tasks without affecting network performance or resilience.
Built on a high-availability ATCA COTS platform, the architecture comprises two distinct components: a Signaling Session Controller (SSC) and Media Session Controller (MSC). Conforming to 3GPP specifications for decomposed SBC functions, Perimeta enables independent, cost effective scaling of these critical control elements. Where consolidation of these individual components is preferred, the Perimeta Integrated Session Controller (ISC) combines both SSC and MSC elements within a single platform, without sacrificing performance or scalability.
The perimeter of your communications architecture is only as strong as its weakest link. Beyond the boundary of your managed infrastructure lie many threats to the continuity of your service offerings and to the integrity of your network. Fortify your edge and protect your core with the Perimeta portfolio of session border controllers.
