What is NGN or Next Generation Network and the benefits?

The new generation of a telecommunication network is called Next Generation Network or NGN. The main reason for this naming is the existence of general changes in all aspects of service delivery, especially in the core of NGN.

NGN is a Packet-Base network that can provide telecommunication systems and value-added services.

In the past, the main structure of the landline phone was a circuit (Circuit Switch) and based on an analog signal. Although significant changes have taken place in various service areas, its general nature, based on signal transmission and a copper wire substrate, is well preserved.

At NGN, we are witnessing general changes in switching, transmission systems, etc., which has led to more freedom of action in providing fixed telephone service. The main idea of NGN is that a network can transmit all services (audio, data, and video) over the IP platform.

In a traditional telephone network (PSTN), a call center performs most of the tasks required for call support, call control, features and applications, service circuits, and line and trunk cards. But this structure is entirely different in NGN networks. In particular, the call center is divided into several separate components by standard protocols, each of which can be supplied by other vendors.

What are the benefits of implementing NGN?

Any new concept or system that enters the telecommunication networks after implementation and implementation will have positive and negative consequences. On the other hand, there are currently single-service networks that are expensive to maintain. Still, the NGN network is a single server / client-based network that offers multiple services together.

1-Increasing profitability by offering new services

• Accelerate the introduction of new services

• Providing new services through the integration of circuit and packet networks - Web-Based call management services

2-Minimize principal and maintenance investments (CAPX) and (OPEX)

• Network performance through packeting

• Integrated network management

• Maximize flexibility and scalability

• Combining and coordinating equipment and applications using open and standard interfaces

• Maintain investment

• High scalability

• Easy to introduce new technologies

What is NGN or Next Generation Network

Also, the main components of the NGN structure include:

1. Soft switch, which is equivalent to call control and is also called Media Gateway Controller or Call Agent.

2. Media Gateway (Media Gateway), equivalent to trunk and customer cards, includes Access Media Gateway or AMG, Wi-Fi Media Gateway or WMG, and Trunk Media Gateway or TMG.

3- Signaling Gateway

4- Media server (Media Server), which is equivalent to switch circuits

5. Application Server, which means features and applications.
