The Nokia Media Gateway Controller-8 (MGC-8) provides media gateway controller functions for both TDM and IMS/NGN networks. This product lets service providers migrate seamlessly from legacy TDM, to VoIP, to converged IMS on a single platform.
The MGC-8 delivers a full range of access/toll-tandem services and protocols. Functions include any-to-any switching, such as TDM-to-TDM, TDM-to-IP and IP-to-IP.
Service providers can integrate the signaling gateway functionality within the same chassis. The MGC-8 supports four key applications:
- NGN Class 4 local, access, and toll-tandems
- CDMA/GSM Gateway MSC (GMSC)
- IMS Media Gateway Control Function (MGCF)
- Interconnection Border Control (IBCF)
