Gateway enables organizations to collaborate more effectively helping them streamline business processes, reach the right resource the first time and improve productivity and profitability. Cisco offers an end-to-end unified communications and collaboration solution that includes network infrastructure, security, unified call control, endpoints, network management and a lifecycle services approach. In addition, it offers flexible deployment models, outsourced management options, end-user and partner financing packages, and integration with third-party communications applications. VG224 is a 24-port gateway. Having the device tightly integrated with the IP-based phone system is advantageous for increased manageability, scalability, and cost-effectiveness (refer to Figure 5 later in this document). Commercial businesses can also use these gateways with Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express to effectively augment an integrated-services-router (ISR) environment. Both topology environments support business needs ranging from high to low concentrations of analog voice ports for modem calls, fax calls, and analog supplementary services.
