North American service providers are looking for ways to capture and keep customers by offering new services utilizing their evolving next generation IP networks. They want the maximum flexibility to keep and upgrade different parts of the network for a cost-effective evolution to NGN. For example, replacing existing access and trunking equipment for connectivity to the new IP infrastructure is often cost prohibitive. The Alcatel-Lucent 7506 Media Gateway complement's Alcatel-Lucent's 7510 Media Gateway by providing an effective means for Hosted IP PBX Trunking, Inverse Gateway and Access Gateway functionality for Fiber to the User applications in North America.
Provides the high level of voice service availability and reliability for Hosted IP PBX business users
Communicates simultaneously with multiple SIP controllers, including SIP Feature Servers and SIP proxy servers,for a wide range of end user services and supports other edge trunking and business applications simultaneously in VoIP including legacy interfaces such as T1/E1/PRI and PBX
Business customers can use existing CPE, IP phones, and Web Portals, enabling a rich array of new features and may benefit. In addition, customers get the benefits of a converged, dynamic voice and data service - Protects investments in Class 5, and TDM DCS even as the access networks are upgraded - Reduces switching center costs by using an efficient centralized gateway for many FTTU access networks
Provides a smoother migration to NGN for FTTU served customers compared to competing OLT integrated gateways.
Cost reduction by Class 5 decommissioning: Large blocks of customers served by Litespan can be rapidly moved to the Alcatel-Lucent 7506 Media Gateway and Softswitch control
Hosted IP PBX Trunking: Service providers can provide Hosted IP PBX functionality to enterprise customers without requiring the complexity and expense of a full softswitch deployment or requiring a large enterprise investment in a PBX.
Access Gateway for Fiber To The User (FTTU): Provides interworking between existing Class 5 and Alcatel-Lucent's FTTU access solutions ensuring investment protection and seamless migration to NGN in the future.
Reverse Gateway for Litespan (ANSI): Provides interworking between Litespan and NGN softswitches by converting DLC interfaces (GR303, TR008) to SIP.
Formed from the merger of Alcatel and Lucent Technologies, Alcatel-Lucent combines two entities that share a common lineage that can be traced back to 1986, when Alcatel’s parent company, CGE (la Compagnie Générale d’Electricité), acquired... more
