Intelligent Edge - Enterprise Session Border ControllersDeploying voice communications over the internet can create quality and security issues that do not normally exist with traditional phone systems. To overcome these issues, Intelligent Edges are deployed on the customer network edge to ensure successful VoIP implementations. VoIP service providers deploy an Intelligent Edge in the form of an enterprise session border controller (eSBC) to improve voice quality and visibility into the customer environment, supporting both SIP trunking and hosted unified communications.
