The traditional model used to sell telecommunications infrastructure required a significant up-front capital expenditure (CAPEX) with life-long software and hardware maintenance expenses. This is a real challenge for the emerging cloud communications service providers, many of which are starting from scratch.

As a greater range of communications applications are migrating to the cloud, there is a greater need for affordable cloud-hosted session border controller network services. To answer this need, TelcoBridges recently announced that the company’s FreeSBC session border controller software is now available on Amazon Web Services. Offering feature-rich services comparable to native bare-metal installations and virtualized platforms, the AWS Amazon Machine Image (AMI), provides core network security, interoperability and media services for service providers and enterprises.
Across the industry, cloud-based communications is on a steady growth trend. As application architects piece together their solutions using cloud-bases services, it makes sense to have an affordable SBC to provide security, interoperability and media services.
Greg Collins at Exact Ventures forecasts that by 2022 nearly 75% of all session border controller shipments will be cloud-based
Luc Morissette, Director of Customer Support at TelcoBridges will be joining me for a live webinar on Tuesday, September 25th to deliver an overview of the new FreeSBC on AWS offer, covering the capabilities, limitations and demonstrating the activation process.
During the webinar we explain the three distinct offerings, including:
FreeSBC on AWS as a fully hosted offering – making testing and evaluation much easier for prospective customers, allowing evaluation without dedicating a VM or hardware servers.
FreeSBC PRO-edition – offered as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) with all the PRO-edition features and standard support for $1/session/year
FreeSBC free-edition – offered as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) without support
The session will wrap up by putting a spotlight on the many use cases, showing how hosted contact centers, hosted Unified Communications and traditional telephony services will benefit from cloud-based FreeSBC.

Over my career, I’ve been through plenty of software installation processes – some were of my own doing, others from open source or commercial products. Almost all of them are like watching a Rube Goldberg machine where an intricate sequence of interdependent steps occurs before your eyes. This week, I saw something very different.
