Posted by dwsvishal on April 28th, 2011

When it comes to latest technological innovations, especially the Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) or simply we can say a telephone call or communication happening using the internet, there are many things working together to make it possible. 

The Acronym MGCP stands for  Media Gateway control Protocol, and it is a kind of protocol ( a protocol can be described as a special set of rules that end points in a typical telecommunication connection use when communication takes place. On the basis of its requirement, Protocols exist at several levels in a telecommunication connection) like HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), FTP (File Transfer protocol), TCP (Transmission Control Protocol), IP (Internet Protocol), etc.  and all of them serve different purposes. 

The purpose of Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) is to control Voice over IP (VoIP) Gateways from external call control elements. It is one of the most popular and widely used protocol both from the voice and data managing industries or we can say that it provides the call control functionality, which is one of the very important function, and can be utilized to manage the media establishment in media gateways.  On the other hand, a Dynamic Host Configuration protocol or DHCP is also a protocol intended for communications and it primarily designed for network administrators to centrally manage and automate the assignment of IP or Internet Protocol.   It is well known to many people with even little knowledge that an IP address is used to control or communicate with individual computers and it is assigned by the administrator.   The IP address is created when a new internet connection is made for a specific computer.    In large organizations where hundreds of computers working, a DHCP is mandatory and wit

hout it each computer need to be manually configured with an IP address will be strenuous.
