Cisco PGW-2200 SS7/C7 Solution

The PGW 2200 is an essential component of a service providers strategy for migrating to emerging packet voice technologies. The Cisco PGW 2200 provides seamless interoperability between existing time-division multiplexing (TDM) switches and new packet networks, allowing providers to transition to more cost-effective and flexible services even while these new technologies continue to evolve. This seamless interoperability is achieved by introducing the power and dependability of SS7/C7 signaling for interconnect with the packet voice networks.

The Cisco PGW 2200 allows providers to interconnect to the PSTN with more cost-effective intermachine trunks (IMT) and SS7 links. The Cisco PGW 2200 brings SS7/C7 signaling that provides significant infrastructure cost savings and time-to-market benefits over those using Primary Rate Interfaces (PRIs) or channel associated signaling (CAS) signaling. This creates an environment that improves a providers competitiveness and reduces operational costs.

The Cisco PGW 2200, deployed with a voice gateway, also allows providers to deploy new revenue-generating services, such as PSTN access for business and residential packet voice applications. A provider also can sell hosted business services to a number of customers, gaining from economies of scale. All of these applications require a platform that bridges the old-world TDM networks with new world IP-based networks.

In addition to operational cost savings and new services, the Cisco PGW 2200 provides a lower first port cost. The distributed nature of Voice over IP (VoIP) solutions allows service providers to deploy a single PGW 2200 and a small number of gateways, and expand as the demand grows. This flexible configuration of the PGW 2200 solutions is a key component of a service providers portfolio. It allows them to capitalize on market fluctuations by providing a cost-effective and rapid deployment vehicle.
