What is The Cisco Unified Border Element?
It's becoming more and more common for telephony systems to use a VoIP model from end to end today. Because of that, many businesses are choosing to use internet telephony service providers instead of traditional telephone companies. Many businesses have already been using VoIP systems within their business walls for years, though. Additional tools are needed to bridge the internal VoIP system with external internet-powered telephony services. The Cisco Unified Border Element is one of the tools that bridge those VoIP networks.
Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE) extends functionality when compared to other conventional border controllers. For example, CUBE is capable of terminating both the original signaling (H.323 and SIP) as well as RTP and RTCP. It should be noted that CUBE functionality is only implemented on devices with a special IOS feature set.
For more information on what CUBE can offer over other conventional session border controllers. Take a look at Cisco's documentation page for CUBE.
