Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE)

Cisco Unified Border Element is being used as a primary PSTN circuit across the whole organization. We have HA (High Availability) with redundant ITSP providers distributed across 2 locations for 100% availability.
  • Call accounting (Integration with 3rd party applications for ease of use and comprehensive CDR's)
  • Address hiding (Keeping your internal network secure with PSTN calls)
  • Internetworking between multiple protocols
  • SIP profiles (message/header customization)
  • Billing, cost counting
  • Syntax input should be easier to read and write. For I.E: voice, translations are similar to SED (Stream Editor). Sometimes regular expression is hard to understand for new users.
  • Virtual Cube software stability
  • Cube redundancy setup (defining control interfaces, tracks, setting thresholds and reloads). Redundancy setup should be an automated process, where a user can initiate a setup wizard and then just input key information such as the IP address of Cubes and the exclusive IP address, etc.
  • Widely supported
  • Cisco TAC assistance
  • Proven solution
I've been using Cube for years and I like the way Cube handles a call. Minimum administration required once everything is set up correctly.
