About Sonus Networks, Inc.
Sonus Networks, Inc. provides voice, video and data infrastructure solutions for wireline and wireless service providers.
The companys products include carrier-class infrastructure equipment and software that enable voice services to be delivered over Internet Protocol (IP) networks. IP networks, which transport traffic in packets, can move disparate traffic types (such as voice, video and data) across a common infrastructure. The companys products also interoperate with network operators' existing telephone infrastructure, allowing them to preserve the investment in their networks.
Sonus GSX9000 Open Services Switch
The Sonus GSX9000 Open Services Switch, or the GSX9000, enables voice traffic to be transported over packet networks by converting any type of voice signal into IP packets, transmitting those IP packets over a data network, and then converting whatever type of signal is necessary to be deposited back onto non-IP networks to be delivered to their intended destination. it is devised to support multiple voice encoding schemes used in circuit switches and delivers various other voice compression algorithms. The GSX9000 also operates with its PSX Policy & Routing Server and with softswitches and network products offered by other vendors.
Sonus GSX4000 Open Services Switch
The Sonus GSX4000 Open Services Switch, or the GSX4000, allows service providers to realize the benefits of the GSX9000 on a platform that is right-sized for their immediate needs
Sonus Network Border Switch
The Sonus Network Border Switch, or NBS, is an instantiation of the GSX9000 for packet to packet (IP) networks where session border control, or SBC, services are required for IP peering or IP access. The NBS can be deployed in a Sonus GSX product or in a hybrid environment where some traffic is circuit-to-packet, or gateway services, and other traffic is all packet. In addition to traditional SBC services, the NBS can utilize the media gateway services in a Sonus GSX product to provide media transcoding. The NBS also supports access session border controller functionality, allowing service providers to support business enterprises and individual voice customers over secure IP with access to Sonus' centralized routing, network voice features, and management and provisioning tools.
Sonus PSX Policy & Routing Server
The Sonus PSX Policy & Routing Server, or the PSX, is a primary element of both its distributed softswitch and IMS architecture and plays an integral role in all of its solutions.

SS7/C7 signaling is the global standard for telecommunications procedures and protocol by which network elements in the public-switched-telephone network exchange information over a digital signaling network to effect wireless and wireline call setup, routing and control. The SGX is a SS7/C7 signaling gateway that interconnects Sonus-based packet solutions with legacy SS7 networks. The SGX can be deployed separately or with either the GSX9000 or the PSX in configurations that meet a range of network requirements.
Sonus ASX Call Feature Server
The Sonus ASX Call Feature Server, or ASX, provides functionality that extends its architecture to the access part of the network. The ASX is a call agent that handles call setup and basic call features.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
