Avaya G450 Media Gateway
Avaya G450 Media Gateway
The Avaya G450 Media Gateway provides a secure, reliable, and scalable platform for the delivery of Avaya Communication Manager-based IP telephony applications. It is targeted to mid to large sized branch offices, medium sized standalone businesses or small campus environments. Like other Avaya GX50 series Media Gateways, it can be configured to extend Communication Manager features and applications to branch offices at the edge of the enterprise network. The G450 can also be configured with an S8XXX Server to deliver Communication Manager-based telephony to campus environments.
The Avaya G450 Media Gateway consists of a 3U high, 19” rack mountable chassis with field- removable Supervisor Main Board Module, Power Supplies, Fan Tray, DSP resources and memory. It has eight Media Module slots that host a combination of interface boards to support T1/E1, ISDN-BRI, WAN interfaces, digital or analog telephones and analog trunks. The first Media Module slot can also host an S8300 Server to provide integrated IP Telephony for standalone businesses or mission-critical survivability for branch office-deployed G450s.
Features and Benefits
• Robust Resiliency Features Support Business Continuity
The G450 delivers a variety of voice survivability options to help ensure that the branch can continue to function effectively in the event of network outages. By using an S8300 Server in Local Survivable Processor (LSP) mode, full-featured IP telephony is restored quickly when the WAN link between the main S8XXX Server and the remote G450 is broken. Even without the LSP, the G450 supports Standard Local Survivability, where basic telephony features are available when the WAN link fails. Furthermore, dual, redundant hot-swappable power supplies, and replaceable, hot – swappable main board modules and fan trays ensure help to lower both MTBF and MTBR.
• Designed for Deployment Flexibility
The G450 is interoperable with other Avaya Media Gateways and can be used in either the main headquarters location (with an S8XXX Server running Communication Manager) or a mid to large branch office networked back to a central S8XXX Server.
• Scalable, High Capacity Platform provides Investment Protection
The G450 has the capacity to grow as business needs expand with its modular architecture and capacity for 192 analog or digital endpoints, 8 T1/E1s*, 320 DSPs, and 64 announcements.
• Enhanced Serviceability lowers Total Cost of Ownership
The G450’s modular design streamlines serviceability for both customers and field technicians. Fans can be easily replaced, DSPs and RAM easily added, supervisor modules swapped out, power supplies changed. Given that all media modules, main board modules, power supplies and fan trays are hot-swappable; downtime is minimized.
• Enhanced Security protects Sensitive Information
The G450, like other GX50 Media Gateways, helps to encrypt voice traffic and signaling over the IP network to prevent eavesdropping. In addition, the G450 supports advanced security features such as comprehensive secrets management, SSH/SCP and SMNP v3 so network managers can securely configure and manage the G450.
