Interworking is essential in enabling different parts of the converged network that operate under unique standards and protocols to communicate and interoperate with each other, such as legacy network elements to next generation IP elements. For example, ATM to Ethernet interworking bridges ATM and Ethernet networks. A Gateway is the typical product associated with interworking. Interphase offers both a "gateway on a card" solution and a gateway appliance solution for interworking.
Interphase offers two versions standalone gateway that are specifically built for Convergence, Wireless, and Multimedia applications, such as specialized resource points (SRP), messaging servers, multimedia servers, voice portals, NGN IP media servers, IP PBXs / contact centers, SMS/MMS Centres (SMSC), and HMP applications.
The iNAV 9200 family of standalone single rack-unit products provides high-performance, cost-effective access for routing, bridging and enhanced service offerings. Supporting T1/E1, OC3, OC12 and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, the iNAV 9200 product family enables rapid deployment and scalable growth.

The innovative and highly cost-effective "gateway on a card" from Interphase enables equipment manufacturers to eliminate an expensive ATM or TDM switch from the network design in the case where the application only needs the interworking capability of the switch. The ATM-IP and TDM-IP Interworking cards enables the equipment manufacturer to integrate the gateway functionality right into an existing network element.
Equipment designers can choose between two Interphase interworking cards, depending on whether they require a channelized solution. Both cards provide a complete Interworking solution: the TDM or ATM to IP interworking software, a command line interface, and reliable, field-tested hardware. These application-ready interworking cards have been successfully deployed by demanding customers in many types of applications, including IP Access, WiMAX Gateway, 3G RNC, and LTE eNodeB.

Interphase has provided T1/E1, OC-3, and OC-12 I/O cards to worldwide communications networks for over ten years and the advanced iWARE Media Channel Control Interface (MCCI) for over five years. The iWARE MCCI provides complete management of the IP-ATM interworking user plane and speeds our customers' products to market while providing industry-leading performance. In the challenging China mobile market, our channelized product has been providing service for nearly three years.
Our experts have worked closely with our customers to finely tune the field performance to meet exacting real-time requirements for a variety of radio network controllers (RNCs). This helped the Interphase engineering team build deep expertise in modeling network behaviour and integrating what was learned from our advanced data logging. This experience has results in an application that meets the highest quality standards based on static code analysis tools, customer peer reviews, and exhaustive network testing. MCCI can properly identify and recover from difficult problems that sometimes occur in the network. This robust and stable ATM-IP solution is deployed in worldwide networks in China, EMEA, India, and in the US.
In addition to its channelized interworking performance, customers appreciate the cost effectiveness and convenience of the combined interworking card and iWARE MCCI. One operator has reported a 90% reduction in CAPEX over the competing alternative, in addition to the space savings due to the compact design. The complete integrated package of optimized hardware, high-perforance datapath software, and flexible management software makes this the leading solution around the globe.
