In addition to local user management, the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 allows you to authenticate remote users using the following supported providers:
For these remote users to operate the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system, you must configure their access level permissions by mapping their remote Group (in the case of AD) or Class (in the case of RADIUS) to the desired Sonus SBC 1000/2000 access level. This mapping configuration will dictate the Sonus SBC 1000/2000-based permissions for your remotely authenticated users:
- Managing Active Directory Groups to Access Level Mapping
- Managing RADIUS User Class Access Level Mapping
Remote users are not stored on the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system, instead they live on the remote authentication providers. Remote user authentication happens over the network with the appropriate external provider which is transparent to the user.
