The iMerge Centrex Feature Gateway from AG Communication Systems gives service providers the ability to offer the full spectrum of voice

The iMerge Centrex Feature Gateway from AG Communication Systems gives service providers the ability to offer the full spectrum of voice, data and Centrex features over Internet protocol (IP) networks, using their existing Class 5 switches.
iMerge combines the efficiency of IP transport technology with the unmatched telephony capabilities of a circuit switch using open GR-303 architecture.
iMerge distinguishes itself from other VoIP products in the marketplace by leveraging carriers' existing infrastructure. Carriers can boost revenues with new IP applications that can be deployed immediately and minimize expenditures by providing these new services using existing equipment.
iMerge offers a VoIP solution that:

  • Offers seamless services: IP to IP, PSTN to IP, or IP to PSTN.
  • Uses existing infrastructure for billing, OAM&P, SS7 and CALEA compliance.
  • Uses the custom software and Class 5 switch adjunct platforms (voice mail, call center adjuncts, etc.) that carriers have developed over decades.
  • Uses the training and skills base of your existing workforce.

iMerge is notable not just for what it does, but for how it does it: iMerge connects to the class 5 switch using the Telcordia standard GR-303 interface, an open, scalable architecture offered on multiple switch types. So, whether you have a 5ESS, a DMS, or a GTD-5, iMerge will deliver the features of that switch to your packet network.
iMerge's open architecture on the egress side works with a wide variety of customer premises equipment from multiple vendors, allowing your customers the flexibility to use equipment that fits their exact needs.
iMerge uses your existing stable and secure Class 5 infrastructure for billing, OAM&P, signaling (SS7), trunk interface and CALEA-compliance.
iMerge uses the current circuit-switching infrastructure as a springboard from which to venture into emerging communication technologies, safeguarding your investment in your existing assets. iMerge represents an ideal solution for the controlled transition to delivering applications over packet networks.
