Cloud based services are growing dramatically and to meet service provider needs Sansay is providing session control as a cloud option leveraging Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) infrastructure. With Sansay’s VSXi session controller on Amazon EC2 service providers can realize the benefits of cloud computing: rapid deployment, scalable computing capacity and lower upfront investment.

Sansay’s AWS offering enables service providers to offer voice, video and multimedia services to residential, enterprise and carrier customers via the AWS fully supported cloud infrastructure. Additional service can be quickly tested and turned up including back-up and disaster recovery (DR) of current network deployed infrastructure replacing the need for expensive co-location facilities. Customers can also use the AWS cloud solution to support and accelerate the broad deployment of WebRTC in the WebSBC system.

Sansay’s cloud based session controller on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provides scalable session control in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. Using Amazon EC2 eliminates the need to invest in hardware up front, so service providers can develop and deploy applications faster. Amazon EC2 can be used to launch as many or as few virtual servers as are needed, configure security and networking, and manage storage. Amazon EC2 enables you to scale up or down to handle changes in requirements or spikes in popularity, reducing your need to forecast traffic. Sansay leverages an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) which can be preconfigured in a single or multiple set of Sansay session control instances depending on the application and capacity requirements. As shown below the Sansay session control AMI template is created from the same VSXi-INX software release and service provider customers can license this AMI instance or pay for specific capacity that is utilized in the AWS EC2 infrastructure.

Sansay VSXi-INX AMI details:

  • Customers will receive an AMI that they can deploy in multiple AWS regions.
  • Amazon EC2 hardware capacity and performance will meet the requirements of the VSXi-INX AMI instance release up to 1000 sessions per instance with media switching. Media capacity and CPS is dependent upon instance type.
  • A service provider can implement a single or multiple sets of private AMI instances for their use in a redundant fashion.
  • Hybrid cloud deployments are supported by having VSXi-aws running on AWS with MSX media servers deployed in dedicated facilities.
  • Automatic license sharing between VSXi-aws instances.
