Simple and Predictable

  • Aside from sessions licensing there are NO
  • Per feature licensing
  • Per user licensing
  • Per codec licensing
  • All features, codecs are included in the license.
  • Sangoma only counts INVITE as a session.

This allows a network planner a predictable SBC capacity in every situation.
Other vendors use draconian licensing schemes
Example: Phone “Registration” counts as a sessions when the call is made In this case SBC capacity is reduced further due to licensing model.
