As carriers continue to adopt VoIP, telephony networks are converging to support both voice and data services. Many operators already deploy VoIP at the core of their network in order to transmit voice traffic over long distances, while seeking to integrate VoIP at the access side.
AudioCodes supports a comprehensive set of Multi-Service Business Routers (MSBR), VoIP Media Gateways, IP Phones, Media Server & Session Border Controllers which are suitable for carrier needs of providing end-user customers with secured, integrated VoIP & data services. Media Gateways support analog and digital interfaces and connect over an IP link to the core of the Service Provider's network. They can be used to connect PBXs, telephones or fax machines for sending and receiving VoIP traffic up until the edge of the network. Media Servers provide media services for value added VoIP applications over the VoIP network, and Session Border Controllers provide secure connectivity between separate VoIP networks. The MSBR integrates all of these functions, together with a secured data router into a single device.
