Enterprise Media Gateways

Businesses have migrated to IP-based communications systems to improve collaboration and contain costs.  But many enterprises still maintain large collections of legacy gear, both TDM (often called digital) and analog.  Organizations can have hundreds or even thousands of analog phones as well as analog lines for elevator phones, door phones, alarm systems, and fax machines.  Many large organizations often have campus environments with legacy cabling that is cost-prohibitive to upgrade to IP.  In fact, it's not unusual to find organizations that can't upgrade to modern unified communications because of the cost of upgrading analog devices and cabling. 

Ribbon’s Enterprise Gateways deliver pragmatic solutions to network transformation.  Whether it's just a few devices at a branch office or tens of thousands of lines at a university or military base.  Ribbon has solutions for any size deployment.
