We are delighted to announce the release of Software Version 7.20A.256 for AudioCodes session border controllers and media gateways.
The new update incorporates a new centralized SBC licensing model called Flex License, which provides a central pool of licenses that are shared across multiple SBC instances.
The Flex Licensing model works very much like the Floating License, with a few notable differences:
- The Flex License is managed exclusively by OVOC, eliminating the need for a Cloud-based License Manager (CLM) module required in the Floating License. Flex is intended primarily for customers whose security policies prohibit communication to the public cloud for the purpose of metering.
- Unlike the Floating License, which allows SBCs to exceed pool capacity and therefore bills customers for the extra license usage, the Flex License gracefully enforces its purchased license capacity – eliminating traffic bursts and any additional charges they would otherwise incur.

The Mediant 1000B SBC application has been updated to support Interactive Connectivity Establishment (ICE) Lite, which enables Microsoft Teams Direct Routing (media bypass mode) environments. ICE Lite is already supported on other Mediant SBC platforms.
