[VoiceOps] RFO: Cisco ASR platform as an SBC

I have no idea if they still sell it but before Acme bought them, Covergence had a SBC that could run in a VM.


I was going to suggest OpenSBC as well, but the project seems to have died before they got anywhere.

Thanks but we presently own and operate several acmes, a Metaswitch and Sylantro platform and have looked long and hard at Sonus for other things but this particular project is all about reducing the real per-session costs, which I don't suspect a hosted solution will be able to do. Feel free to ping me off list though if you've got a super compelling offer, I'm always open to new solutions.

If you don't want to invest a lot , you can rent Sonus platform at very reasonable monthly cost. Some people also call it switch  partitioning. 

We offer TDM / IP  Switch partitioning  with support . I  would be happy to explain our switch partition offering. We  feel free to email me privately.

I was wondering who out there has actually used Ciscos ASR platform as an SBC and what are your opinions of it? I am well acquainted with the offerings from Acme and Sonus but I have a specialized need that those vendors may be pricing themselves out of in licensing, but it MUST be a B2BUA which eliminates OpenSIPS/Kamailio as a potential solution. I'm also looking for a solution that can be scaled out to between 16k/32k sessions/node with high availability and media handling, but with minimal signaling mangling and transformations.

Please feel free to share your experiences good, bad or otherwise.

Thanks in advance!
