Ribbon PSX Software Edition VNF (PSX SWe)

Centralized Policy and Routing (PSX)

Ribbon's centralized policy and routing solution (PSX) provides a better way to manage the security, complexity and cost of routing calls across any operator's network. PSX is designed as a scalable, high-availability architecture to optimize capital expenses by maximizing utilization of network resources.  At the same time, single point of provisioning of a master database, which is propagated to multiple replicated databases for localized processing, greatly reduces the complexity and cost of operations. The PSX can be deployed in any fixed or mobile operators network, including as an IMS Border Gateway Control Function (BGCF).

PSX SWe

The PSX SWe is a virtual and cloud-native version of the PSX.  It provides the same features, exceptional scalability and centralized policy/traffic control as hardware-based PSX for both SIP and legacy network elements, including SBCs, media gateways and soft-switches. The PSX SWe can be deployed in any service provider’s traditional or IMS network.  It also fits seamlessly into a service provider Network Function Virtualization (NFV) strategy, with support for OpenStack-based service orchestration.
