MGCP Information Site
MGCP was originally developed to address the need of scaling ingress
and egress gateways in order to meet the demands of service providers.
MGCP utilizes SDP for negotiating the media streams transmitted
and received on the packet network, which significantly reduces the
interworking complexity between SIP-based media gateway controllers
(or "call agents") and media gateways. MGCP was published by the IETF
as Informational RFCs (shown on this page) and also standardized
by the ITU-T and adopted for use within cable networks. MGCP is widely
deployed around the world.
