Huawei eSpace U1960 unified gateway (U1960 for short) is a core voice gateway in the Huawei Unified Communications (UC) solution. It works with Huawei IP terminals and UC applications to provide professional IP telephony (IPT) and UC services.
U1960 uses the SIP architecture, features high integration, and supports 1,000 users per subrack. U1960 also provides powerful networking capabilities. In the downstream direction, it supports both narrowband and broadband access, allowing for hybrid networking of analog phones and IP phones. In the upstream direction, it can connect to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) or to voice switches in private networks using digital, analog, and broadband SIP trunks.

U1960 can function as an IP PBX. As shown in the following figure, a U1960 is deployed at the headquarters of an enterprise to provide call control services for users over the enterprise’s network. The branches, according to their user capacities, can use different models of Huawei eSpace U1900 series unified gateways as local voice gateways. These local voice gateways support local regeneration. U1960 at the headquarters and the local voice gateways at the branches can connect to the PSTN using narrowband and broadband trunks. They can also connect to multiple types of terminals, including SIP phones, integrated access devices (IADs), analog phones, and fax machines, to provide a rich array of voice services for users.
U1960 supports two deployment modes to ensure a highly reliable IPT solution: local two-node clustering and remote disaster recovery.
UC core voice gateway
U1960 can serve as a UC core voice gateway. As shown in the following figure, a U1960 and UC application servers are deployed at the headquarters of an enterprise to provide basic telephony services and UC services, helping improve enterprise users’ communication efficiency. The services supported include voice calling and voice conferencing among different types of terminals (SIP phones, analog phones, and soft terminals), presence, instant messaging (IM), and multimedia conferencing. The branches, according to their user capacities, can use different models of Huawei eSpace U1900 series unified gateways as local voice gateways. These local voice gateways support local regeneration.
