Ericsson Inc. and MCI Inc. have agreed to deploy Ericsson's engine solution to migrate MCI's U.S.-based international gateway traffic from traditional circuit switching to carrier-class VoIP. Launching Ericsson's engine solution in the U.S. is a key step in MCI's convergence networking strategy. This VoIP infrastructure will enable the company to transport voice traffic worldwide on its IP backbone as well as expand its network functionality and offer next-generation services on a global basis.

MCI's engine deployment includes the Ericsson Telephony Server (TeS) which serves as the voice gateway controller and signaling gateway and the Ericsson Media Gateway (MGW) as the VoIP media path converters. Engine will allow MCI to transfer the function of fixed international switch voice circuits to the dynamic efficiencies of the MCI IP global network. The Media Gateways (MGW) will packetized voice streams that come from the legacy TDM network for transport across the IP backbone. Likewise, MGWs will also convert VoIP packets back to TDM voice streams for transport across the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). Also, by providing MCI with the capability to interconnect existing VoIP networks with SIP and H.323, Engine will also provide MCI the flexibility to connect with global carriers to exchange VoIP traffic regardless of protocol preference.
