Mediatrix DGW Firmware: Long Term Support

Mediatrix SBCs and VoIP Gateways: Durability and Resilience for Your VoIP Operations

Did you know that all Mediatrix SBCs, gateways, and analog adaptors run on the same powerful and reliable DGW firmware?


Mediatrix products are known worldwide for their reliability, stability, and flexibility. And the DGW firmware installed on each Mediatrix unit plays an essential role in this success. Our proprietary Mediatrix DGW firmware is developed in-house and is in constant evolution going further and beyond customer needs while meeting the stringent requirements of the fast-changing global VoIP market.

For each DGW GA release, Mediatrix platforms must successfully complete more than 8,000 hours of structured lab tests, summing more than 50 million call completions on digital and analog ports. This requirement guarantees the durability and resilience of our products ensuring the highest quality for your operations.


Some facts about the DGW firmware:

  • New upgrades do not change unit behaviour
  • No need to re-do the system integration when upgrading to the latest features therefore reducing deployment costs
  • Works with any hardware configuration even with modular products already deployed thanks to high configuration portability
  • Licence activation (SBC, Survivability, TR-069, etc) is managed without needing to upgrade the current DGW firmware version
  • Remote provisioning, management, and troubleshooting (with the Media5 Management System Virtuo EMS or a third-party application)
  • Highly durable platforms: 3-year warranty with MTBF of up to 900K hours*
  • Long-term support (LTS) reduces operation costs, risks, and service disruption, while ensuring dependability.
