Firewall vs SBC – What are the differences?

You may think having a firewall is enough to protect your communication system; the fact is, firewalls are not optimized for VoIP systems and there are shortfalls. Overall, firewalls:

  • Are not optimized for data traffic
  • Don’t have enough performance for small voice packets
  • Don’t support and recognize SIP and RTP traffic
  • Don’t prevent eavesdropping
  • Don’t protect you from hackers who commit tool fraud by hijacking a device and placing unauthorized long-distance calls.

On the other hand, an eSBC can defend against:

  • Toll fraud
    • Back-to-back user agent
    • Advanced call routing security
  • Denial of service
    • Trusted peer – whitelist
    • SIP packet flooding prevention
  • Eavesdropping – encryption (TLS/SRTP)
  •  Truly converged voice and data security

Now let’s look at how Patton’s latest solution, SN500, can do for your business:
