Page 1 of 7 Q & A MGX 8800 Voice Capabilities This document focuses on frequently asked questions about the voice capabilities for the Cisco MGX 8800 series. The voice interworking service module (VISM) adds packet voice capabilities to the MGX 8800 product line to provide voice over IP (VoIP), voice over ATM adaptation layer 1 (VoAAL1) and voice over ATM adaptation layer 2 (VoAAL2) capabilities. Overview Q. Last year, Cisco launched its IP+ATM strategy for service providers. How is Cisco leveraging that strategy relative to our competitors, and what are the core components of our IP+ATM voice and data access solutions? A. Unlike ATM switch vendors who are pushing unproven “bolt on” point products that force service providers to choose between short term profitability and long term survival, Cisco is leveraging its worldwide network leadership in IP and ATM, offering a fully integrated solution that delivers the best of both worlds. This will allow service providers to quickly adapt to the rapid pace of change. Cisco has an aggressive IP+ATM roadmap that will seamlessly accelerate the migration to next generation packet networks. It consists of a “four pillar” strategy: • Accelerating the transition from TDM to packet • Building on Cisco’s IP+ATM leadership • Promoting open networking that will optimize New World solutions through the service provider Ecosystem • Delivering the highest availability multiservice platforms The primary components of Cisco’s IP+ATM voice and data access solutions are: • The Cisco MGX 8850 (including the voice interworking service module or VISM) • The Cisco Virtual Switch Controller (VSC) 3000 These solutions provide: • Integrated voice and data access over a single line (VoX) • Universal access or private line to IP • Flexible service • Lower total cost of ownership • Optimum access economics • Increased customer loyalty The majority of this document focuses on the MGX 8850 with VISM.
