PT's SEGway IP-Edge represents a new approach to signaling solutions. Using a powerful routing engine, IP-Edge drives traditional circuit-switched traffic onto a lower cost IP-network directly from the network edge. Used increasingly worldwide, IP-Edge offers service providers multiple benefits.
IP-Edge converts traditional SS7 traffic (TDM or ATM) to IP (SIGTRAN) reducing the cost of signaling transport by utilizing less costly IP networks.
By “IP enabling” legacy network elements, IP-Edge extends an operator’s investment, thereby eliminating costly upgrades.
Flexible Network Configurations
Flexible routing allows operators to use local routing, reducing the costs of SS7 backhaul, core STP traffic offload, or centralization for core monitoring.
Improved Network Reliability
IP multi-homing and distribution of routing intelligence across the network creates a more robust signaling network.
