Gateways enable communication where otherwise, it would be impossible.
Gateways are analogous to interpreters. They don’t translate the conversation during your calls, but they do interpret, and in doing so interwork, the protocols that set up and manage your conversations.
In that sense, gateways render the impossible possible. But that’s not the whole story…
Aculab Cloud, our communications platform-as-a-service (CPaaS), has been received well by developer customers who serve the healthcare market. With its high-level APIs and pay for what you use approach, it provides a simple, cost-effective means to send and receive voice, fax and SMS messages.
Gateways are great. That’s because they enable communications where otherwise, it would be impossible. Impossible that is other than by using something else. Funnily enough, that something else is often a monolithic PBX that is made to mimic the functions of a gateway. Less amusing is that such a solution is often far more expensive, and involves capital outlay on something inherently obsolete.
