  • Definition: A VoIP Media Gateway is any device, such as a circuit switch, IP gateway that converts data from the format required for one type of network to the format required for another. A media gateway might terminate channels from a PSTN analog or digital network as well as from a packet switched network.
  • If you have ever used a “Pre-Paid Calling Card”, then there is a good chance that your call has terminated on a Leaky PBX.
  • There are two different methods of signaling the first is the IN-Band which means that the signaling is sent within the voice channel. The second method is the Out-of-Band this technique uses a separate channel for signaling this is done for example in ISDN protocol by D channel which is dedicated only for control and the voice is send in B (bearer) channel alone.
