ManageExpress Border Manager (MEBM) enables seamless delivery of Cisco's Session Border Control - Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE). Reduce operational costs by managing high availability and provisioning SIP applications and providers all from a single user interface. Manage policies to detect, notify and log call events.

MEBM is designed as a unified solution which offers extensibility that can be leveraged to automate real world tasks. By utilizing a limited number of subject matter experts to create templates for commonly performed tasks, you empower junior staff to manage them on a day-to-day basis and reduce the chance of errors. Not only does this simplify management, but it also frees up your experts to deal with more complex tasks.

The Monitoring and Troubleshooting features of MEBM provides a window into the performance of the CUBE environments. A large number of call quality metrics are available, like Mean Opinion Score (MoS), Delay, Jitter, and Loss. These are also broken down by ingress and egress and at time intervals within a specific call. If additional information is required for troubleshooting, MEBM can instantiate logging of SIP debugs that can then be seen in a graphical SIP Ladder diagram with the ability to view the messages at each SIP leg.

Built-in templates for initial CUBE and SIP provider configuration

Easily configurable and manageable; MEBM automatically generates verified SIP Tenant and Dial Plan configurations for dozens of providers and countries.
