Seconded on the "SER is not an SBC" point. There are a lot of subtle
services a full SBC provides that SER just cannot. 

Also if you are fairly new to SER, L3 has pretty sensible requirements
for SIP peering so the good news is whatever you do to get it working
with L3 the way you like will most likely carry into other peering
