Sansay Recognized for 'Visionary' SBC, WebRTC Products

Sansay, a provider of software-based VoIP networks, was originally founded to develop the highest quality and most useful VoIP infrastructure systems for carriers and service providers worldwide. Today, that means enabling WebRTC, and as far as Gartner is concerned, Sansay is succeeding. Information technology research and advisory firm Gartner recently recognized Sansay’s software-enabled session border controllers (SBCs) and WebRTC platform as “visionary” in its latest Magic Quadrant report. 

Sansay’s developer program, Real-Time App Developer (RAPID), helps VoIP providers, telcos and other companies design advanced WebRTC applications and services – which is important, since there are already more than one billion PCs, smartphones, tablets and other endpoints that support WebRTC, and that number is expected to grow to 3.9 billion by 2016.

Gartner highlights the readiness of Sansay's SBC products for the emerging WebRTC category of services as a particular strength because they are “cloud ready” and provide features such as session management and security policies managed across a network of servers.

The report noted that Sansay's RAPID program "aims to minimize the time to market for creating and deploying WebRTC apps for both service provider and enterprise markets."

The company is adjusting its SIP SBC to include the WebRTC protocol as a way to provide a seamless transition for application services to use whichever protocol they prefer. This approach to the user experience is essential in adoption; especially as such a large portion of the consumer base has yet to become acquainted with WebRTC.

According to Gartner, Sansay's recently launched WebSBC promises to maximize the performance, profitability and growth of (VoIP) networks and services.

WebSBC is an evolution of the VSXi SBC, which service providers rely on to maximize the performance, profitability and growth of their VoIP networks and services. The most recent SBC architecture works into the application layer via the RAPID development environment, and delivers a carrier-class media engine and scalable WebRTC-SIP interconnect for WebRTC applications within service provider networks.


Sansay will be at next week’s WebRTC Conference & Expo as a platinum sponsor, as well as exhibiting at booth #304 and speaking at the event. Its focus will be on the impact WebRTC will have on the provider infrastructure required for media and signaling. The company’s goal is to show how it can help service providers deploy large scale applications that have the connectivity, reliability and manageability their customers expect.
