The IMS World Forum is the world’s largest IMS professional forum and one of the most influential events in the industry, and has now been successfully held for 14 consecutive years. The award ceremony recognized the outstanding achievements of Huawei’s CloudSBC solution in technology innovations, industry contributions, and application practices.
SBC (Session Border Controller) is a key element on the IMS network and provides session border access, signaling/media proxy, and security functions. Huawei’s CloudSBC solution is the first Cloud Native–based carrier-grade SBC in the industry. It provides SBC and IP-MGW functionalities. Using advanced technologies, such as stateless design, signaling/media separation, and service-oriented architecture, Huawei’s CloudSBC solution achieves rapid service rollout and elastic scaling.
The CloudSBC consistently provides optimal forwarding, transcoding, and encryption performance by means of software and hardware technology innovations, boasting the same outstanding performance as the SBC on the legacy platform, which addressed the media acceleration issue on the NFVI COTS platform in the industry. Additionally, the embedded Web Real-time Communication (WebRTC) function helps carriers innovate services and explore markets in different enterprises and industries.
Chai Hua, Director of Huawei Cloud Core Network SBC Domain, said, “Telecommunication network cloudification is a trend, and media plane cloudification is crucial to network cloudification. Huawei has been devoted itself to investing in the SBC for more than 10 years and has contributed to technology, standard, business, and industry development. Huawei will continue to invest in cloudification and network evolution and work together with carriers to explore more application scenarios and markets.”
So far, Huawei CloudSBC solution has been commercially deployed in more than 30 sites around the globe. Huawei will work with carriers and partners to build an open, innovative, and healthy industry environment, contributing to more innovative services and creating business value.
