SIP Load Balancer
Featured document: Alteon Next-Generation ADC

A device utilized as part of a company's IT infrastructure in order to evenly distribute SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) traffic to the appropriate servers and provide increased network performance. The application of such a device can also boost a network's resilience by protecting business-sensitive data against potentially harmful traffic.

Businesses choosing to implement a SIP load balancer within their IT resources will benefit from improved network performance and additional server security. These advantages will provide higher scalability, as well as increased network availability and reliability. SIP traffic will be efficiently directed to appropriate servers in order to produce the most effective SIP traffic management system available. Without proper SIP load balancing abilities, organizations may encounter problems such as traffic bottlenecks, server downtime and the exposure of business-sensitive data to potentially malicious traffic such as Denial of Service (DoS) attacks or Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Improving the way a business handles its SIP traffic will help increase even server processing distribution, which in turn will help guard against overloads and crashes. These processing abilities, along with the added security measures provided by SIP load balancing, provide an acceleration solution sure to increase performance.
