SBC, Class 4 Softswitch, Proxy?

We have given it a great deal of thought as to whether to brand our system as a class 4 cloudswitch or an SBC (Session Border Controller). As our platform is delivered OTT (Over The Top), sitting on cloud architecture, the typical Border part of the Session Border Controller is blurred. An SBC is (almost always) a class 4 switch, however a class 4 switch does not have to be a SBC. This does not mean that you can't use it as an SBC. You can deploy your class 5 switches or your diallers to only communicate via our Class 4 Switch.
