Global Session Border Controller (SBC) Market Highlights 2019-2028

The global session border controller (SBC) market registered a market revenue of USD 616.8 million in the year 2019 and is further projected to cross USD 940 million by the end of 2028 by growing at a CAGR of 4.73% during the forecast period, i.e., 2020-2028. Shifting preferences of enterprises from the public switched telephone network (PSTN) lines to IP telephony or voice over internet protocol (VoIP) based private branch exchange (PBX), coupled with the increasing penetration of 5G telecommunications network globally are some of the significant factors anticipated to create numerous opportunities for market growth during the forecast period.

Global Session Border Controller (SBC) Market Overview

A session border controller is a device commonly installed in session initiation protocol (SIP) based VoIP networks to control the signaling. The term “session” refers to a communication in the context of a call between two parties. Each call consists of information of call or video along with data. The term “border” refers to a point of differentiation between two parties of networks. The data flow of the session hinges on a session border controller (SBC) that allows only authorized sessions to pass through the border and also acts as a router. On the other hand, the term “controller” denotes the impact that session border controllers have on the data streams that comprise the session done between two parties. It is also used to control all types of interactions in the organization including VoIP, IP video, video calling, text chat, and team video or texting sessions among others. Session border controllers are usually deployed on the cloud (virtual) and operate in two architectural modes, namely integrated or standalone non-split session border controller (SBC) architecture and distributed or split session border controller (SBC) architecture. The operating architecture of the two SBC modes is displayed below: CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

Market Segmentation Synopsis

By Type

The global session border controller (SBC) market is segmented by type into enterprise SBC, service provider SBC and hybrid SBC. Amongst these segments, the enterprise SBC segment is projected to hold the largest market share of 69.27% by the end of 2021. Enterprise session border controllers or (E-SBCs) are installed at the border between trusted and untrusted networks. They operate at the session layer, processing traffic that uses real-time communication protocols, primarily SIPs. Backed by the rising BYOD culture, and increasing adoption of remote working owing to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, E-SBCs are very essential amongst organizations for secure and constant connectivity. Organizations further utilize E-SBCs to connect and control the traffic flowing through the enterprise’s real-time communications infrastructure to the private IP networks, public internet, and one or more SIP trunk service providers. The enterprise session border controller segment is further sub-divided into small-scale enterprises, medium-scale enterprises, and large-scale enterprises, amongst which, the medium-scale enterprises segment is projected to grow with the highest CAGR of 5.13% during the forecast period.

Market Drivers and Challenges

Growth Indicators

Growing Need amongst Enterprises to Safeguard their Communication Channels

Over the years, VoIP has become an increasingly popular communication channel for various companies owing to its greater flexibility, less complication, and enhanced cost-effectiveness when compared to conventional business communication technologies. With the growing adoption of VoIP, the concern for data theft and network blockages is also growing massively, which is raising the need amongst the enterprises to deploy SBCs. SBCs protect the VoIP networks and enterprises can either choose an on-site hardware-based SBC or a cloud/virtual software-based SBC. The adoption of SBCs is also growing exponentially on account of the increasing preference for IP communication platforms, rising demand for increased security of the communication channels, and the need for exemplary customer experience. Alternatively, the increasing demand for high-speed data network connectivity, along with the need for minimum latency to ensure seamless network connectivity are some of the additional factors anticipated to drive the market growth in the coming years.

Numerous Benefits Associated with SBCs to Drive Market Growth

The primary role of SBCs is to protect and secure the network from hackers. As IP communication channels are highly susceptible to cyber-security threats, such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, toll frauds, and others, enterprises are increasingly deploying SBCs to gain more control over their VoIP communication channels. SBCs possess numerous benefits, including features such as intelligent session control, and enhanced scalability, which play an important role in the unified communication network. Moreover, with the recent advancements in technology, manufacturers of SBCs are increasingly working on adding new features for a greater consumer experience. SBCs are designed to respond to real-time communication cyberattacks, fraud, and other incidents. This equipment is also known to have an accelerated response to threats, which further reduces the operational cost of the user. Furthermore, the SBCs also ensure that the communication traffic is delivered through the favorable route only, therefore enabling business organizations to ensure that every call is being effectively delivered to its final location. Such factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the session border controller (SBC) market during the forecast period.

Barriers

Complexities Associated with Session Border Controllers (SBCs) to Hinder the Market Growth

While there are various advantages of the session border controller, the technology also comes with its disadvantages. The complex interoperability associated with the product is one of the critical factors limiting its implementation in the industry verticals. The lack of a clear data model for the protocol design, along with the fact that the setup and maintenance of the SBC require high expertise, are some of the major factors anticipated to limit the growth of the market. Additionally, lack of awareness regarding session border controllers (SBCs) amongst business organizations worldwide, along with the complex configuration process and poor implementation practices, and the availability of open-source SBCs, are some of the additional factors projected to lower the market growth in the coming years.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Session Border Controller (SBC) Market

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, several countries globally resorted to lockdowns to flatten the curve of the viral disease. During the period, most of the SBC service providing companies have witnessed significant growth in some industries, backed by the surge in the work from home (WFH) users. However, in some sectors, due to the impact of the temporary shutdown of businesses, the demand for SBCs in several other end-use industries wedged massively.

Competitive Landscape

Some of the prominent players in the global session border controller (SBC) market are Cisco Systems, Inc., Oracle, Sangoma Technologies Corp., Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., ZTE Corporation, Avaya Inc., Ribbon Communications Operating Company, Inc.
