More security (part 1 of 2) - free SBC on board

Demand for All IP is increasing as analogue and ISDN networks throughout Europe are currently being switched over to standard Internet Protocol (IP). The VoIP technology offer users many advantages such as Unified Communications, WebRTC and Anywhere Workplace. Hence the opening of telephony to the Internet is carried out at the same time. This increases the need to deal more intensively with data security than was necessary with traditional telephony. Session border controllers are used in order to secure SIP trunks in the course of All IP. innovaphone has developed an SBC within the V12 security concept "More Security", which it has integrated into the innovaphone PBX. The innovaphone session border controller (SBC) supports all relevant security mechanisms and thus reliably protects the innovaphone PBX against attacks from the Internet. No further external SBC or third-party SBC are required. This simplifies installation and ensures 100% compatibility, bringing a cost advantage for the customer.

 

SBC on the innovaphone IP0011 VoIP gateway is particularly suitable for users, who want to install the innovaphone SBC on a separate device, perhaps even in a DMZ. Installation is quick and easy, as usual. The IP0011 is a powerful gateway and provides the innovaphone lean "no. nonsense" architecture for a small price (490 euro list price).

innovaphone in practice: Flury Stiftung

The communications solution by innovaphone fit perfectly to Flury Stiftung’s needs and requirements

 

Several retirement homes in Prättigau, the crèche in Rätikon and other health facilities are united under the umbrella of Flury Stiftung, the foundation based in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. Some 460 people are employed at the health provider’s seven sites. The realisation of a new hospital building in Schiers was the impetus to exchange the communications infrastructure for a sustainable, future-oriented system, namely the innovaphone IP telephony and UC solution.


A specification catalogue including the following items as used to select the future communication system:

  • Smooth migration of the existing system, gradual migration of individual departments to the new building
  • Ensure ongoing operation, 24/7 in a critical environment (emergency calls, alarm server etc.); highest possible availability
  • Administration possible by the internal IT department; it should be possible to manage relocations, personnel changes and minor enhancements internally
  • Desktop and cordless phones with an interface to patient/nurse call and thus the alarm server
  • Integration of an external medical practice

 

Due to the fact that it was a new hospital building, the technical requirements that would be useful for a future-oriented communication solution could be created from the outset. "For the most part, the entire roll-out was trouble-free and was carried out within a reasonable period of time, which was also thanks to the project partner, swisspro, being very well-prepared," comments Edi Philipp, project manager at Flury Stiftung. It was important that the ongoing operation of the hospital did not have to be interrupted during the transition period and that there were absolutely no outages in the communication infrastructure. He continues: "We are completely satisfied with the new solution by innovaphone. Ease of use and scalability allow us to place our trust in innovaphone even in the future - especially in regard to more sites."
