What is Media Gateway Approval?

Media gateway approval is an authorization to set up a media gateway – a translation device used to convert media streams between different telecom networks.

A media gateway is a translation device. It converts multimedia data streams to transmit them through dissimilar telecommunication networks. The concept of such a gateway originated as a TDM-based voice network that uses IP for voice transmission.

Now, it has evolved into a device that converts voice and other multimedia data streams across a wide variety of service provider applications and enterprise applications.

Following is how media gateway assists enterprise applications:

  • SIP Trunking services to legal PBX equipment.
  • Connection of legacy infrastructure to new IP-based cores.
  • Protection and extension of the previous TDM.
  • Preservation of existing line equipment.
  • Preventing expensive rip and replace upgrades.

Following is how media gateways assist service provider applications:

  • Facilitating interconnection and joint operation for CDMA, GSM UMTS and satellite networks in 2G, 3G, 4G, and future 5G architectures.
  • Enabling IP media processing for IP MSA networks
  • Providing facility to interconnect and jointly operate the Class 4/ IP tandem/ IP trunking and Class 5/subscriber.
  • Conducting IP to IP media conversions for interconnected networks
