Nortel enhances media gateway portfolio

The company claims to offer service providers a cost-effective way to reach smaller markets

By CBR Staff Writer

Nortel has enhanced its media gateway portfolio with the latest release of the Media Gateway 3600, a carrier-grade, medium density VoIP trunk gateway that offers service providers a cost-effective way to reach to smaller markets that require less network capacity than densely populated areas.

According to the company, the latest release of the gateway has been updated to meet the technical standards and requirements of North American service providers. In addition new features have been added including security enhancements that can reduce security threats for service providers and help ensure their communications systems perform uninterrupted.

Nortel has said that the Media Gateway (MG) 3600 monitors voice performance and identifies problems in the voice path to ensure better quality voice communication. In addition to extensive voice and PSTN features, the MG 3600 also provides a fax and modem transport system, all on a single platform. The latest release of Nortel’s MG 3600 also introduces a small AC-powered version of the existing DC-powered shelf that provides capacity up to 80 T1 or E1 spans.

Samih Elhage, president of carrier VoIP and applications solutions at Nortel, said: Having access to a smaller sized gateway at a lower cost allows carriers to access more markets in a more cost-effective way. The MG 3600 also allows for capacity to be added in smaller increments than a gateway made to serve a large, densely populated region so it scales at the right ratio and cost for smaller markets.

The latest release of the MG 3600 includes new security features such as encryption on the signaling channel that protects the networks from attacks that could cause loss of service.
