Site Cost Reduction  Only Signalling between MSS and MGW Number&location of MSS site is independent MSC Server of traffic  Number of site can be reduded. Signalling ONLY!! A (IP/TDM) Nb (IP/ATM/TDM) MGW elements can be located to existing BSC/RNC sites  No dedicated site requried  MSS/MGW are compact in size Footprint 1/3 of typical MSC footprint  floor space cost minimize Iu CS (ATM/IP) Media Gateway PSTN (TDM) 6 © Nokia Siemens Networks CN34011EN40GLA3 .  MGW seldom require a site visit.

 Difficult to reduce number of MSCs PSTN H.Separation of call control and switching enables high capacity control elements and localized switching. BSS/RAN MSC  MSC  High MSC capacity increases access transmision costs.248  MSS  Local traffic is switched locally in MGW MSS BSS/RAN MGW City A City B  MSS capacity can be maximize w/o access cost increase. 7 © Nokia Siemens Networks CN34011EN40GLA3 . This eliminates long transmission legs in local calls.
