Trunking Gateway - Definition
A Trunking Gateway typically connects between large enterprise VoIP networks and service provider TDM networks or between VoIP service providers and TDM service providers. A trunking gateway will typically support a large number of VoIP channels, using a number of E1/T1/DS-3 or STM-1 links.
Trunking gateways implemented in the core of service provider VoIP networks will also require integrated redundancy, built-in scalability and efficient manageability, and will be controlled by a Media Gateway Controller using MEGACO (H.248), MGCP or SIP.
