Converting data from the format required for one type of network to the format required for another.
Service providers will use one or more codecs on their VoIP networks according to their desire to save bandwidth, to provide a certain level of voice quality, or simply to interoperate with other VoIP devices or providers. The ability to support multiple concurrent codecs and to allocate them in real time based on traffic is the key to delivering true network convergence.
SMARTNODE 10100 SS7 MEDIA GATEWAY
The SmartNode 10100 SS7 Gateway enables SIP-to-SS7 and H.323 VoIP services delivery by bridging voice traffic between the public switched telephone network (PSTN)—based on time-division multiplexing (TDM) with SS7 signaling—and emerging SIP-over-IP telephony networks.
SMARTNODE 10200 SS7 GATEWAY
Carriers and service providers are adding SIP-over-IP capabilities to their SS7/sigtran networks, whether to reduce costs when interconnecting with other carriers, to cost-effectively build out their network footprints, or simply to transport voice traffic across their IP backbones.
SMARTNODE 10300 SS7 MEDIA GATEWAY
As service providers add VoIP capabilities over their SS7/sigtran networks, they reduce costs when interconnecting with other carriers, cost-effectively build out their network footprints, and transport voice traffic over SIP-over-IP backbones.
