Yes No TDM channel virtualization and visibility for VoIP calls Integrated SBA management operations to acquire and confirm correct SBA operation e.g. SBA SW load identification, replication status, call status, etc. Recovery partition in the SBA processing complex allows user to store an uncorrupted SBA & OS image for fallback in catastrophic crash Yes, "one click" recovery option Network access available during SBA booting allows remote operator to load uncorrupted image in recovery partition recover from SBA catastrophic crash. No, on-site re-boot only Signed roll-up patch service from gateway vendor to simplify SBA patching and reduce customer IT costs: • Gateway vendor is the single source of all required patches, vs. multiple disparate sources • Simplified patch management procedure, vs. complex multiple disparate patch application Lync SBAv2 compliance, Lync RBA (Resilient Branch Appliance) for Lync survivability over 3G/4G Yes, first and only vendor Multi-forest AD support for separating out AD query for monitoring network traffic and AD query for voice traffic Additional information on Note 3 - The signalling on the Genband products has historically not been handled by a network processor with only media being handled via the network processor.

Yes Not available as pure E-SBC with Lync™ SBA Configurations, requires MSBR configuration Full on-board call forking to support multiple call terminations to both SIP and TDM/analog clients and simplify Lync migration into the branch Yes, up to 8 analog/TDM/SIP call destinations per forked call Limited on-board call forking (10 SIP endpoints only) & consumes SIP licenses Programmable AD Integration to support custom AD-supported call flows. No Optional AD caching to optimize network traffic & prevent lost phone calls during AD server outage.
