Separation of Media and Call ControlnGatewaysnnnSignaling path and media path are different inVoIP systems.nnnInterworkingTo make the VoIP network appear to the circuitswitched network as a native circuit-switchedsystem and vice versaMedia – directly (end-to-end)Signaling – through H.323 gatekeepers (or SIPproxies)SS7, Signaling System 7nThe logical separation of signaling and mediaIP Telephony 20

Separation of Media and Call ControlnA network gateway has two related but separatefunctions.nSignaling conversionnnMedia conversionnnThe call-control entities use signaling to communicate.A slave function (mastered by call-control entities)Figure 6-1 illustrates the separation of call controland signaling from the media path.IP Telephony 21

Separation of Media and Call ControlnAdvantages of SeparationnnnnnMGCP, Media Gateway Control ProtocolnnMedia conversion close to the traffic source andsinkThe call-handling functions is centralized.A call agent (media gateway controller - MGC) cancontrol multiple gateways.New features can be added more quickly.IETFMEGACO/H.248nIETF and ITU-T Study Group 16IP Telephony 22
