Abstract

See full text

A framework system serves to translate calls between dissimilar networks. More specifically, the framework system serves to translate calls between dissimilar packet networks and/or between a packet switch network and the public switched telephone network. The system includes a media engine module for terminating and handling channels of data transmitted between the networks in real time. An administrator module provides control and management interfaces for controlling processing applied to each channel. A conduit module serves to enable the distribution of software throughout the framework system allowing the distributed software to use interprocessor communication mechanism in the system. Optionally, a signaling engine module serves to provide access to call control information for connection between two networks.
