Softswitch Makes Calling Better and Easier
In simple terms, Softswitch is a concept of distinguishing the network software from the network hardware. In the circuit switched networks, which were used in the old and traditional times, the software and hardware were linked to each other.
The networks of a circuit switched were depended on the facilities, which were dedicated to interconnections, and were specifically designed for voice communications. The packet based networks were more efficient and they functioned on the Internet Protocol.

The SBC or Session border controller was specifically designed to implement some high end functions and they are mentioned as below:
The main purpose of softswitching
One of the most important goals is to establish a Softswitch that will not have any hard drawbacks, which the traditional switches had, such as intelligent network mechanism and triggers, service logic, and circuit based switch and transportation. A complete Softswitch will be the one having all the functionalities to make easy phone calls.
The efforts of ISC, International Softswitch Consortium, and IETF, Internet Engineering Task Force, have the same goal in their minds, which is to form a distributed telecommunication architecture wherein the functional components will be completely independent. Some of those functional components are switching, service logic, transport, and network control.
Thus, in order to assure you a better calling experience, facilities Softswitch application is introduced in the market, which soon become popular among the business and personal users. With all the positive marketing and benefits, it is sure to offer you better and advanced features in the near future.
