ESGW (Emergency Services Gateway)

The signaling and media interworking point between the IP domain and conventional trunks to the E9-1-1 SR that use either Multi-Frequency [MF] or Signaling System #7 [SS7] signaling. The ESGW uses the routing information provided in the received call setup signaling to select the appropriate trunk (group) and proceeds to signal call setup toward the SR using the ESQK to represent the Calling Party Number/Automatic Number Identification (ANI) information.
