Contact centers are in the middle of a long-term transition from traditional TDM-based telephony to Voice over IP (VoIP). VoIP delivers significantly lower recurring costs and is a key enabler of contact center virtualization, allowing agents to work anywhere they have IP network access, including at home and while mobile. VoIP is also the critical first step toward truly comprehensive IP-based interactive communications - presence-enabled audio and videoconferencing, chat/instant messaging (IM), multimedia collaboration and communications-enabled business applications. But significant challenges in security, interoperability, service assurance and regulatory compliance emerge as contact centers begin migrating voice, conferencing and other real-time interactive services from TDM to IP networks.
Session border controllers (SBCs) are being deployed by contact centers to enable the delivery of secure, high-quality, real-time interactive communications, including VoIP and UC. Similarly, service providers are using SBCs in their new offerings for their hosted and outsourced contact center solutions.
