SBC or Class 4 Softswitch

ConnexCS is a Class 4 Cloud-based Softswitch. It is delivered as a service, as in PaaS (Platform as a Service). It allows our clients to deploy a massively-scalable distributed system accross the globe with minimal technical expertise.

SBC, Class 4 Softswitch, Proxy?

We have given extensive consideration 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. You can also deploy class 5 switches or your dialers to communicate using our Class 4 Switch.
