Paris (France) – 7 December 2011 – Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH), through the Cirpack brand, now offers its Session Border Controller (SBC) as a decomposed and scalable platform to provide the enhanced flexibility that meets customer needs.

The Cirpack SBC is available in three modules that help manage increasing signaling traffic and the high-performance demand of media traffic:

    The Compact SBC is an “all-in-one” solution, hosting both media and signaling controllers on a single platform.
    As a network grows, the Compact SBC can be upgraded to a dedicated media controller, supervised by the Integrated SBC; a combination of access and interconnect signaling controller modules.
    When more power or dedicated modules are required, the Integrated SBC can become a Specialized SBC, focused on access control or border management.

The open-ended scalability enables network SBCs to easily grow through the smart reallocation of existing equipment, which means that extra platforms are only installed when traffic grows.

The ease of integration and performance of the Cirpack SBC’s inherent security mechanisms make it the perfect, scalable solution for telcos. Its features enable operators to define clear demarcation points at specific boundaries; create borders to strengthen security and control - both in the access and interconnect limits; and secure the core network as well as controlling all network flows to safeguard against potential intrusion.

The scalable platform meets international standards by ensuring interconnections with any other network. It delivers multimedia and interactive communication services, such as media traffic control, media transcoding, identity management, roaming control IP bouncer (to control who has access, for example from third party local loops) and a SIP limiter.

Cirpack entered the SBC arena in 2005, when it launched the IP Centrex. Initially focused on managing IP engineering-based issues and securing the core network, Cirpack has developed a full range of solutions and products that meet the exacting needs of its strategic customers, and has now launched one of the most innovative SBC solutions on the market.
