Intelligent Media Gateway
The Sonata IMG provides a cost-effective, standards-compliant solution for completing calls between traditional telephone and wireless networks. This powerful platform, a key component of Star Solutions’ Sonata® product suite, delivers full-featured functionality and uncompromising performance in a Compact PCI form factor.
IMG – Enables Traffic Offload
When deployed remotely at the edge of the network, the Sonata IMG enables operators to connect to TDM networks such as the local PSTN. On a distributed network, multiple IMGs can support small concentrations of traffic and offload backhaul links from carrying unnecessary voice traffic. Deployed with the iCell IP-RAN solution, remote IMGs enable operators to reach new coverage areas by sharing a common, All-IP switching core.
