  • IPGate-MG50 Legacy Circuit to MPLS Gateway - Back

The IPGate offers legacy circuit to MPLS gateway features that reliably transport legacy Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) and other circuit-based applications over IP/MPLS or VLAN packet switched networks. Using Circuit Emulation Services over Packet (CESoP), Structure Agnostic TDM over Packet (SAToP) and pseudowire over IP/MPLS, the IPGate MG50 supports a wide variety of legacy analog and digital interfaces at configurable data rates ranging from 50 bps to 52 Mbps. IPGate-MG50 supports 1/10 Gbps IP/MPLS or VLAN copper and fiber interfaces. It lets customers easily and reliably take advantage of converged IP networks to transport legacy circuits.

IPGate-MG50 provides the functionality to meet future network capabilities in the current hardware platform, saving capital expenditure (CAPEX).  Life cycle operations expenditure  (OPEX) are significantly reduced because the IPGate-MG50 provides for a simpler network implementation with fewer components to manage and maintain while increasing the system resilience.
