IP Telephony technology allows networks to transport voice and data traffic over the same network, leveraging your communications investment. Internet Telephony Gateways allow you to incrementally Internet-enable your Meridian PBX with an integrated solution for high-quality voice transmission over an IP network on the line side and trunk side of your existing circuit-switched infrastructure. The fully integrated Wireless Internet Telephony Gateway provides Internet-enabled voice and data communication solutions for the wireless local area network. Line-side Gateways With the Internet Telephony Gateway Line-side solution, users gain access to robust IP Telephony desktop devices such as the i2004 Internet Telephone and the i2050 Software Phone. Line-side gateways provide the benefits offered by the data network (such as flexibility and simplified system management), with desktop solutions that reduce infrastructure costs. The Meridian SL-100 Integrated Gateway provides carrier-grade reliability and scalability to large enterprise customers. Trunk-side Gateway Internet Telephony Gateway Trunk-side solutions allow use of IP wide area network routes for voice between Meridian 1 systems. With trunk-side gateways, you can consolidate network facilities and reduce costs by using your data network for telephony where and when it makes sense. Your existing Meridian investment is protected because your users continue to use their existing telephones and applications, including automatic route selection to the IP route. Quality of Service, (QoS) is protected because the gateways monitor latency and packet loss on the network and revert to a circuit-switched connection as necessary to ensure the highest quality telephony experience. The migration to IP telephony is transparent to the user, no change in dialing sequence or feature operation occurs. Wireless IP Gateway The Wireless Gateway for the Succession Internet Telephony portfolio expands the benefits of mobility by empowering employees with integrated voice and data applications and devices for use anywhere, anytime in your organisation.
