Cisco Unified Communications is a comprehensive IP communications system of voice,
video, data, and mobility products and applications. It enables more effective, more
secure, more personal communications that directly affect both sales and profitability. It
brings people together by enabling a new way of communicating—where your business
moves with you, security is everywhere, and information is always available...whenever
and wherever it is needed. Cisco Unified Communications is part of an integrated solution
that includes network infrastructure, security, mobility, network management products,
lifecycle services, flexible deployment and outsourced management options, end-user
and partner financing packages, and third-party communications applications.
Product Overview
The Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway is a session border controller (SBC) that interconnects
independent voice-over-IP (VoIP) networks for data, voice, and video transport. SBCs are critical
components for scaling networks from islands within a single customer network to an end-to-end
®
IP community. The Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway is an integrated Cisco IOS Software
application that runs on the Cisco 2800 and 3800 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISRs), the
Cisco 2600XM Multiservice Routers, the Cisco 3700 Series Multiservice Access Routers, the Cisco
7200 Series Routers, the Cisco 7301 Router, and the Cisco AS5350XM and AS5400XM Universal
Gateways. Today, the Cisco IP-to-IP Gateway is used by service provider, enterprise, and
commercial customers to interconnect Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and H.323 voice and video
networks.
The Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway is a simple and cost-effective solution that provides a
network-to-network demarcation interface for signaling interworking, media interworking, address
and port translations, billing, security, and quality-of-service (QoS) and bandwidth management.
The gateway performs the same breadth of functions as a Cisco public switched telephone
network (PSTN)-to-IP gateway, only now it also joins two VoIP or video call legs without the need
for the PSTN.
Cisco IOS Software helps enable the simultaneous operation of the following:
Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway—An application that terminates and reoriginates both
signaling and media streams while performing services of an SBC between IP networks
Cisco IOS H.323 Gatekeeper—An application that acts as the point of control for a variety
of voice and video components that can be attached to an IP network such as IP telephony
devices, IP-PSTN gateways, H.323 videoconferencing endpoints, and H.323 multipoint
control units while facilitating build-out of large-scale multimedia service networks
Cisco TDM Gateway—An application that allows time-division multiplexing (TDM) switching
between TDM interfaces or TDM-to-IP interfaces

Better voice quality, cost, and space savings (including rack density), and a feature set
comparable to back-to-back gateways
Codec filtering by restricting codecs advertised on outbound call legs; for example,
restriction of high-bandwidth codecs is possible on the reorigination side of the IP-to-IP
gateway outbound dial peer
Improved billing and settlement capabilities
More control of calls routed between service providers and enterprises
Critical services provided at the edge of the network for scalability

Feature Availability
The Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway Gatekeeper TDM is built on Cisco IOS Software and runs
on the following platforms:
Cisco AS5400XM and Cisco AS5350XM Universal Gateways
Cisco 7301 Router
Cisco 7200VXR Series Routers
Cisco 3800 Series Integrated Services Routers (Cisco 3825 and 3845)
Cisco 3700 Series Multiservice Access Routers (Cisco 3745 and 3725)

2650XM, 2651XM, and the Cisco 2691)
A minimum of 64-MB flash memory and 256-MB DRAM is required, and a minimum of 1 Fast
Ethernet port for an external interface is required.
The Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway does not require any other hardware modules (no
network modules or WAN interface cards).
For transcoding, one of the following products and appropriate DSPs is required:
Cisco High-Density Voice Network Module (part numbers NM-HDV and NM-HDVSERVERFARM)
Cisco IP Communications Voice/Fax Network Module (part numbers NM-HD-1V, NM-HD2V, NM-HD-2VE, and PVDM2-XX) on Cisco IP Communications High-Density Digital
Voice/Fax Network Module (part number NM-HDV2)
More details for transcoding are available at:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5854/products_qanda_item0900aecd8016c2c7.shtml.
The Cisco 7200 Series Routers and the Cisco 7301 Router do not support transcoding.
The Cisco IOS Software images listed in Table 4 allow the simultaneous operation of the Cisco
Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway, the Cisco IOS Software H.323 Gatekeeper, and the Cisco TDM
Gateway—all on the same device. The recommended Cisco IOS Software releases for the
features mentioned previously are the Cisco IOS Software 12.4T release train.
Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway with Open Settlement Protocol
Open Settlement Protocol (OSP) on the Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway helps VoIP service
providers use the routing, billing, and settlement capabilities offered by OSP-based
clearinghouses.
The Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway with OSP requires a separate feature license and a
separate Cisco IOS Software image with cryptographic capabilities.

Data Sheet
OSP features include the following:
Multiple dial peers and a single OSP server
Flexible call types: OSP-in to OSP-out, OSP-in to H.323-RAS-out, and H.323-RAS-in to
OSP-out
Triple Digital Encryption Standard (3DES) and 128-bit encryption
The OSP-enabled IP-to-IP gateways require a cryptography-enabled “adventerprisek9_ivs” Cisco
IOS Software image.
Summary
The Cisco Multiservice IP-to-IP Gateway provides direct IP interconnections with lower cost and
greater flexibility than TDM interconnections. This gateway helps service providers and enterprises
decrease VoIP latency, improve voice quality, and effectively support rich-media services, thereby
allowing Cisco Unified Communications products to work transparently in both intra- and intersite
deployments.
