Can any of the PA firewalls act as an SBC?

Not applicable

Hi all,

I am wondering if it is possible to set up a Palo Alto firewall to act as a Session Border Controller for VoIP.

Any articles or company response regarding this capability would be appreciated.

No, Palo Alto is not a session border controller.

Policies can provide some of the security features of a SBC.  But none of the voip specific signaling or features would be available.
