Multiservice Gateways Support the Growth of VoIP and Next Generation Networks
By Mae Kowalke
TMCnet Senior Editor
Thanks to new technology, communications networks are now able to support a much broader and deeper range of capabilities than was ever possible before. Voice over IP, or VoIP, is pushing the growth of such networks far beyond the limits imposed by traditional communications hardware and server-based solutions.
VoIP capabilities are largely supported by high density multiservice gateways. These devices enable the fast creation and delivery of new services based on pre-built and ready-to-use applications. The full potential of such gateways is the topic of an upcoming Webinar, Experience the Power of High Density Multiservice Gateways.
This free Web event is scheduled for Tuesday, June 10, 2008, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (8:00 a.m. Pacific). Presenters Marc St-Onge (director of sales at TelcoBridges), Martin McFadden (business development manager at TelcoBridges) and Erik Linask (group managing editor at TMC (News - Alert)) will provide an overview of media gateway platforms and how they can be used to support revenue-generating services like hosted IP PBX, unified communications, conferencing and voicemail.
The presentation will be followed by a question and answer period.
During the Webinar, St-Onge, McFadden and Linask will cover various aspects of using multiservice gateways to support next-generation services. This includes using application development tools to minimizing costs and shorten time-to-market, leveraging pre-packaged gateways and application source code, and protecting investments by adding new services to existing platforms.
