G250 Media Gateway
OVERVIEW AND DETAILS
The G250 is an enterprise branch office gateway designed to serve the communications needs of a small branch with 2 to 14 extensions. This gateway allows organizations to economically extend their headquarters communications applications, such as Avaya Communication Manager, out to their branch locations to lower overall costs and increase collaboration across the entire organization.
This is a powerful branch communication solution that packs an IP telephony gateway, an advanced IP WAN router, a VPN gateway and a high-performance LAN switch into a compact, 2U high 19" rack mount unit. The G250 Gateway extends the enterprise communications capabilities in the headquarters location out to a branch location and is ideally suited for branch locations needing from 2 to 14 extensions. The system gains its functionality from a centralized Avaya Media Server running Avaya Communication Manager, but has several survivability options that allow communications to continue operating even if the connection to the main server is lost for any reason.
An advanced TDM/IP architecture provides seamless connectivity and communications between a wide variety of analog, digital, H.323, and SIP-based IP telephony devices and applications. To enhance security, the G250 can secure VoIP media streams using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), approved for use by U.S. Government agencies to protect sensitive information.
The Avaya G250 also functions as an edge router to support the consolidation of voice and data traffic over an IP network. Optional IP WAN routing media modules add support for PPP/Frame Relay connectivity over E1/T1 or Universal Serial Port (USP) interfaces. The G250 media gateway can also connect to an external WAN device via a fixed 10/100 Ethernet WAN router port, which supports traffic shaping to match data transfer rates with available WAN bandwidth.
