Businesses have migrated to IP-based communications systems to improve collaboration and contain costs. But many enterprises still maintain large collections of legacy gear––TDM access equipment and phones along with analog lines for elevator phones, door phones, alarm systems, and fax machines. For most large organizations it simply doesn’t make good economic sense to move every device to IP. Ribbon’s Enterprise Gateways deliver pragmatic solutions to network transformation. With Ribbon, enterprises can easily adopt IP-based devices and services where it makes sense while maintaining legacy access nodes and endpoints where cost or other factors dictate.
Protect and Extend Media Gateway Investments
TelcoBridges TMG Small Media Gateways provide high performance and scalable connectivity for E1/T1’s, DS3’s & OC3/ STM-1 Interfaces. Ribbon’s larger G6 Universal Media Gateway connects legacy telephony line access equipment into Ribbon’s C20 core as well as CS 2100 cores. Ribbon’s G6 provides a full array of access trunk interfaces supporting PBX’s over T1/E1 PRI, and legacy DMS (SL-100) switch line access equipment. The TMG800/3200 and G6 Media Gateways provide a cost-effective way to extend the life of TDM access technology. Ribbon’s G5 Line Access Gateway provides high-density analog line support, eliminating equipment sprawl and operating expenses.
