The MG6010 and MG6050 Universal Media Gateways represent a new generation of mid-density and high-density access and trunking media gateways uniquely architected to serve as a critical component in integrated Class 5 migration strategies while acting as a vital circuit to packet switched transitional network element in NGN and IMS carrier infrastructures.

The MG6010 and MG6050 are both built on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) ATCA platforms designed for cutting-edge performance and easy maintenance. The mid-density MG6010 supports up to 48xT1/E1, 24xDS3 or 8xOC3/STM1 while the high-density MG6050, designed for larger media gateway deployments, scales to 144xDS3, 48xOC3/STM1 or 12xOC12/STM4.

Integrated Class 5 Migration Solutions

Network operators are striving to modernize their core switch and services infrastructure while maintaining their investment in TDM control and transport equipment. The MG6010 and MG6050 enable you to migrate smoothly to a feature-rich next-generation network while preserving TDM connectivity.

When combined with the MetaSphere MTAS, the MG6010 provides a complete softswitch solution for wireline service providers.

Voice Over Fiber

Where the evolution of local loop technologies, such as active Ethernet or generic passive optical networking, outpaces modernization in the central office, the MG6010 and MG6050 with comprehensive support for voice services over fiber can extend the life of expensive core telephony switching systems.

Multi-Service Signaling Gateway

Featuring an integrated signaling gateway, designed to transform circuit-switched SS7 and ISDN messages for IP networks, the MG6010 and MG6050 eliminate the need for a distinct signaling gateway component. Exposing a standardized media gateway control protocol, the MG6010 and MG6050 can interact with the MetaSphere MTAS or any third-party MGCF.

IMS Trunking Media Gateway

The MG6010 and MG6050 are equipped to help you migrate rapidly to IMS networks without compromising on legacy interconnection and peering demands. Based on the IMS reference architecture and controlled using either H.248 or SIP (combined with Metaswitch MGC), they provide trunking media gateway functionality between classic TDM/PSTN and IMS networks.

VoIP in PacketCable

Fully compatible with VoIP over cable in a PacketCable environment, and with support for Network Call Signaling (NCS) to Multimedia Terminal Adaptors (MTAs), the MG6010 and MG6050 make the latest VoIP features available to cable MSOs in all stages of network migration.

Access Gateway Emergency Standalone

The Emergency Standalone (ESA) function preserves your service with basic call control functions during critical network outages between the MG6010 or MG6050 and its controlling MetaSphere MTAS. In ESA mode, the MG6010 and MG6050 can also assume control of other Metaswitch or third-party media gateways, along with customer premises equipment such as MTAs that have been disconnected from the MetaSphere MTAS.

A fully redundant system architecture allows the MG6010 and MG6050 to retain full operational capability in the event of an individual component fault.
