Cisco MGX 8880 Media Gateway

The Cisco MGX 8880 Media Gateway is a new hardware platform based on the industry-leading MGX multiservice product line that has been specifically designed for wireless and wireline service provider voice applications. Combining density, scalability, and performance with an advanced high-availability design, the MGX 8880 Media Gateway is ideally suited for service providers' voice networks and provides a graceful transition to a service-rich advanced IP/MPLS-based multimedia network.

Cisco MGX 8000 Series Multiservice Switches

The Cisco MGX 8000 Series multiservice switches enable delivery of a complete portfolio of differentiated services and scale from DS0 to OC-48c/STM-16 speeds. Based on the industry's most extensible architecture, the Cisco MGX 8000 Series multiservice switches provide flexibility at the service provider edge. Multiple, simultaneous control planes support flexibility and scalability in deploying, managing, and modifying various ATM, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), and voice services.

The Cisco MGX 8000 Series multiservice switches can be voice-enabled by adding packet voice modules such as the Voice Interworking Service Module (VISM-PR) and the Cisco Voice Switch Service Module (VXSM). This provides investment protection of the existing installed base of Cisco MGX multiservice customers worldwide. By installing the voice modules on their existing multiservice infrastructure, operators can realize substantial operational savings by consolidating their core networks for voice and data into a single packet network.
