New Extended eMOS Licence Tracks Call Quality in Mediatrix Gateways

The new eMOS voice quality estimation feature is the ideal tool for monitoring the health status of your Mediatrix units and operations


Canada’s leading VoIP supplier M5 Technologies has just announced the launch of a new advanced feature for its globally known Mediatrix gateways: the estimated Mean Opinion Score. The eMOS extends the RFC 6035 and RTCP-XR capabilities of the Mediatrix CPE devices providing critical metrics for VoIP management to any external voice quality monitoring software.

The Mean Opinion Score is a commonly adopted measure for audio quality evaluation across devices, allowing for alerts and notifications with real-time feedback.

It monitors average call quality over time and other metrics such as packet loss, round-trip time, and jitter, sending warnings to a third-party system when the unit experiences a low mean opinion score (2 or below on a scale of 1 to 5).

Already available in the latest DGW 45.1 firmware, the eMOS licences can be factory-installed or purchased separately and installed on your deployed Mediatrix devices.

Migrate to SIP Telephony

shutterstock_373265089More and more businesses are looking for new ways to implement Unified Communications solutions to improve their efficiency. This is why many enterprises are migrating to SIP Telephony, which means migrating from TDM-based telephony architectures to a SIP-based network.

The Mediatrix portfolio provides affordable and high-quality solutions (including Media Gateways, Phone Adaptors, and SBCs) to promote the convergence of traditional phone services into the new IP-based voice, video, and data.


  • Flexibility and interoperability between many devices
  • Survivability and quality of service during each phase of SIP migration
  • High levels of security with encrypted signaling and media
  • Lower costs of VoIP implementation and management for service providers, integrators, and customers

M5 Technologies’s Solutions Address Each Phase of SIP Migration:

  • PSTN Replacement – Migrate the network into IP and keep the connectivity between analog/ISDN equipment and the new SIP core.
  • Hybrid Legacy/IP system –Add new IP applications and services to the enterprises’ legacy communications system.
  • Fully migrate to SIP – Finally, enterprises will gradually move users to SIP extensions until all users are migrated.

Mediatrix Differentiators for Enterprises

Integrate legacy and IP-based communication systems

The Mediatrix portfolio of media gateways, phone adaptors, and enterprise session border controllers are recognized for their interoperability with major soft-switches and IMS vendors.

Mediatrix also complies with legacy telephony specifications to smoothly integrate landlines, PBX systems, and both analog and ISDN devices with the IP communications system.

Protect customer quality experience

Less resilient networks are subject to disruption and poor quality for real-time communication services.

The Mediatrix portfolio offers network survivability and security to ensure the delivery of carrier-class services.

IPv4 to IPv6

IPv6 network transition scenarios for business services come with many challenges for enterprises. With the introduction of IPv6 clients and servers within the LAN and the Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), IPv6-capable wide area network (WAN) services are becoming mandatory, while supporting existing IPv4 clients and servers as well.

Mediatrix portfolio includes IPv4-IPv6 dual-stack systems. Regardless of when and how long migration to IPv6 will last, Mediatrix ensures high-quality communications for service providers and businesses between IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

SIP Trunking Deployments

Although SIP Trunking deployments represent a significant revenue stream for carriers and service providers, it also comes with many concerns about service quality. M5 Technologies allows you to lower costs by providing a less expensive infrastructure and enabling scalable and secure communications networks.


On the customer’s side, operators must provide a reliable and secure environment for their IP communications to ensure a high service quality while taking care of issues that may occur between carriers’ systems and customers’ CPEs.

Our portfolio enables carriers to deliver the best customer experience with reliable survivability, interoperability and protection in addition to easy Media Gateway and SBC deployment, integration and management.

Main Benefits

  • Low-cost deployment and management
  • Protect both Service Provider’s network and Customer’s network
  • Ensure quality of service due to the high survivability
  •  Solve SIP interoperability issues between Service Provider and IP-PBX

Reduce SIP Trunking deployments costs with Virtuo, an easy management tool

The efficiency of SIP Trunking deployments and maintenance activities not only reduces operating costs but also leverages the customer’s perception of first class support services.

Mediatrix focuses on the innovation of CPE management to enhance the provisioning and troubleshooting processes. Comprehensive configuration templates and custom factory profiles, offering carriers and service providers great tools to shorten service activation and reduce maintenance costs.

Protect the Edge of Your Network

The public network offers Service Providers the possibility to expand their offering without any frontiers. This is also an opportunity for intruders to exploit security weaknesses at the edge of the network and make fraudulent use of the services.

Unprotected networks are also subject to several attacks like denial of service and breach of confidentiality.

Mediatrix provides advanced SIP and IP Security mechanisms to protect the edge of the network, providing powerful security features to monitor and control any attempt to access the network.

Offer Survivability and Quality of Service

Service quality and continuity are paramount to a successful service provider business. In case of WAN failure, Mediatrix will ensure the internal call control while redirecting external calls to a secondary, geo-redundant server or to the PSTN, if available. Failover and fallback are completely seamless and transparent to the phones and PBXs in the enterprise.

Traffic shaping and call admission control ensure that the user experience is safeguarded.

Connect any device to your network

While the core infrastructure is 100% prepared to deliver communication services, the equipment sitting at customers’ premises may not be that ready to enable SIP Trunking or Hosted Services right away.

When the transition to a full IP solution is not an option, Mediatrix multi-service platforms allows for the conversion of any legacy and SIP-based communication systems into a single and normalized SIP interface.

These Rulesets allow administrators to easily manage service activations, saving both time and money. A Ruleset Editor also allows administrators to create new Rulesets or modify existing  Rulesets to adjust configuration settings as needed.

The Mediatrix Sentinel 400 also provides advanced troubleshooting tools for resolving problems, monitoring operational activities, and collecting relevant service administration information.

Protect CAPEX & OPEX

With pricing competition from Over The Top providers, Service Providers can now sharpen their operational structure and ensure profitability while preserving customer satisfaction with an outstanding quality of service. Migration to VoIP is a well-known strategy, but infrastructure investment and manpower training can represent significant challenges to a successful service launch.

Sentinel 400 offers a competitive pricing structure and can be initially deployed as a single chassis with a basic configuration. Sentinel 400 can be field-upgraded by adding telephony cards or SBC licenses according to the specific needs of each enterprise customer. This positions Sentinel 400 as a pay-as-you-go solution that allows customers to align their infrastructure investment with the changing demand for services.

The operators or service providers that have just migrated their customers to SIP, or are in the process, can trust Sentinel 400 as a modular device for every phase of deployment. Learn more on why Sentinel 400 is a complete and profitable solution for SIP migration.
