1 SELL SHEET Managed & Sonus SBC Offer: Providing Deep Diagnostics and Real-Time Visibility for Sonus Session Border Controllers Overview: The Audio Quality and Deployment Challenge As a key business driver, the inevitable migration from PSTN to SIP is yielding significant operational efficiencies for a multitude of enterprise customers, including superior flexibility, a smaller hardware footprint, increased resilience, and improved business continuity. With these benefits, however, come serious migration challenges, such as poor audio quality. Choosing the best, fully-integrated Unified Communications (UC) tool can resolve deployment issues that your enterprise customers may experience with their specific UC platform or SBC (Session Border Controller). The /Sonus Solution: Scalable, Centralized Management and Deep Forensics for Sonus SBC Environments The key to resolving these migration concerns is s Unified Communications Management Platform (UCMP). It offers a wealth of forensic data to solve critical customer needs by providing complete visibility into the health and performance of the SIP network and the SBC. By tracking both signaling and media, can effectively isolate issues related to the internal network, the SIP service provider, or the SBC itself. Total visibility eliminates finger pointing and ensures that corrective actions occur in a timely manner thereby reducing time to resolution, guaranteeing optimal voice quality, and ensuring a superior user experience. Synergy with Sonus: Joint Development Effort Integrates Technology with Sonus SBC 1000 and 2000 Now, through a joint technology development effort with Sonus a global leader in secure and intelligent cloud, and Sonus have integrated the capability for s UC Diagnostics to offer deep diagnostic data for the Sonus 1000 and 2000 SBCs without requiring probes or remote UC Diagnostics servers to be co-located with the SBCs. Using this collaborative approach, can now provide your enterprise customers with deep forensics and unsurpassed visibility into the health and performance of the Sonus SBC infrastructure and provides session level diagnostics at the carrier demarcation point. From a centralized location, s UC Diagnostics (UCD) technology provides full signaling and media analysis on both the public and private side of the SBC without the need for network taps or SPAN ports. This enables complete session visibility so you can take a proactive approach to quickly identifying signaling issues and media quality problems before they can negatively affect the user experience.

2 Further, the jointly developed, UC Diagnostics and Sonus SBC solution provides Centralized Management a single UC Diagnostics system can be installed in a centrally located and secure data center to monitor Sonus SBCs deployed at remote sites. This eliminates the number of remote UC Diagnostics servers that must be installed, and dramatically decreases maintenance costs. UC Foundation Functionality for Monitoring Sonus SBCs Alarming and alerting Card & port status Session statistics Attempts, completions, rejections, blocks DSP usage Environmental Power, fan, temperature UC Diagnostics for Sonus SBC Key Benefits Full probe functionality with no probe required. Significantly reduces operations and maintenance costs since UC Diagnostics devices are not physically deployed at remote sites. Enables monitoring of all remote SBCs via a single, centrally located UC Diagnostics system with no loss of functionality. Facilitates monitoring and rapid turn up of new sites by means of a simple configuration change on the Sonus SBC. Creates a clear point of demarcation between the Enterprise and the Carrier. Proactively monitors the health, performance, and capacity of the SBC infrastructure. Tracks and monitors SIP signaling errors on both sides (public and private) of the SBC. Provides clear RTP quality measurements on both sides of the SBC. Address all facets signaling, media, hardware and Service Provider. Ensure quality end-user experience for SIP calls. Real-Time SIP Session Management and Real-Time Media Analysis UC Diagnostics Functionality Feature Bracketing Real-Time Media Statistics Media KPI SIP Response Codes Signaling Packet Capture KPIs Site Tracking Related Sessions Description Isolates issues to internal (private) or external (public/pstn) side of your SBC demarcation point signaling and/or media Provides real-time, during call, media analysis to show the true end user experience Offers current and historical key performance indicators for alerting and trending (MOS, packet loss, jitter, etc.) Identifies unexpected SIP termination/error codes and quickly finds problem sessions Quickly debugs hard to find signaling issues Includes current and historical (signaling) key performance indicators for alerting and trending (post-dial delay, etc.) Delivers site-based session tracking and reporting to identify systemic versus local failures (heat map view) Swiftly identifies and relates all legs of a calll
