# Avaya Session Border Controller
The ServicePilot Manager Avaya Session Border Controller package collects information from Avaya Session Border Controller for Enterprise or SIPERA SBC servers.
This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the Avaya Session Border Controller to query Avaya Session Border Controller for Enterprise servers on which
SNMP Service has been configured. The statistics gathered in this way include:
- SIP Call statistics
- SIP Registration statistics
- SIP Protocol Message statistics
- SIP Protocol Error statistics
SNMP must be installed and configured on the Avaya Session Border Controller for Enterprise (Security: SNMP v2c read-only access from the
ServicePilot ManagerIP address)
Network Flows - It is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure with a firewall, all of the following flows must be opened:
- UDP/161 (SNMP): Between ServicePilot Manager and Avaya Session Border Controller for Enterprise
- ICMP/Echo Request (Ping): Between ServicePilot Manager and Avaya Session Border Controller for Enterprise
- UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between Avaya Session Border Controller for Enterprise and ServicePilot Agent
- ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place and if a ServicePilot Agent is required, that it is communicating correctly with the ServicePilot Manager.
