IP Packet eXchange and the Dialogic Global Multimedia Exchange (GMX) Solution Architecture
An IP Packet eXchange (IPX) is a private managed network, defined by the GSMA, over which service providers can offer network connectivity and service interworking on a commercial and competitive basis between not only mobile operators, but also fixed and converged service providers, cloud operators and application service providers.
The IPX is built upon the key concepts of openness, service quality, support for cascaded charging models and efficient connectivity. Implementing an IPX compliant architecture can open up revenue generating opportunities for service providers already experienced with interworking NGN and IMS based services.
Dialogic has helped service providers implement IPX networks with a comprehensive offering referred to as the Dialogic® Global Multimedia eXchange, or GMX. The GMX is a solution architecture applicable to service providers building a GSMA IPX compliant network, as well as service providers building a common IP backbone for their own networks. Benefits provided by the GMX include:
- The ability to interconnect heterogeneous networks where there are different generational technologies involved
- The ability to seamlessly connect multiple IP networks that use variants of the same control plane protocol
- Capabilities for baseline IPX service support
- Enablement of enable service providers to offer other value added services without conflicting with the operation of the standardized IPX services.
