Ribbon Communications, Inc., a global software leader in secure and intelligent cloud communications, today announced that market research firm Exact Ventures has ranked its Session Border Controllers (SBC) as the number one market share leader during the fourth quarter of 2018 with a 20.3 percent revenue market share. SBCs ensure that voice, video and data communications flow smoothly and securely over IP and SIP-based networks.

“We are experiencing strong market performance from our SBC portfolio across various market sectors,” said Tony Scarfo, EVP, Products, R&D, Support and Supply Chain for Ribbon. “Our solid market performance demonstrates excellent customer acceptance from both the service provider and enterprise markets of our virtualized pure Software edition (SWe) SBC products in conjunction with our core software and appliance-based SBC solutions. This not only instills greater confidence from our customers, but also reinforces to our channel partners that they have a trusted brand and proven software solutions they can offer their customers.”

Scarfo added,“As we continue to add enhanced AI-based analytics via our Ribbon Protect platform and advanced security features to our market leading SBCs, our partners will be able to customize solutions even more to offer further value added options to their customers.”

“Ribbon was the overall market share leader for SBCs in the fourth quarter of 2018,” said Greg Collins, Principal Analyst and Founder of Exact Ventures. “The depth and breadth of Ribbon’s SBC portfolio allows them to meet a variety of customers’ needs and deliver a number of deployment options (premises, cloud, virtual, hybrid, etc.), from small branch offices to large core networks, and that will be important as service providers and enterprises increasingly seek solutions that can be customized for their specific needs.”
