A MG terminates switched circuit network (SCN) facilities (trunks, loops), packetizes the media stream, if it is not already packetized, and delivers packetized traffic to the packet network. It performs these functions in the reverse order for media streams flowing from the packet network to the SCN.
A generic class of products grouped under the Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP). A major function of the media gateway is simple IP/TDM conversion under the control of a softswitch.
