gateway MSC (GMSC)

A gateway switching center, Gateway Mobile Switching Center (GMSC) is a component of the switching subsystem in GSM networks that realizes the transition to partner networks.

The GMSC creates the connection between a radio or satellite-based mobile radio network to other networks, such as the fixed network, for the purpose of voice and data communication. In addition to switching functions, the GMSC switch also performs data transmissionservices, such as short message service (SMS).

The gateway functions of the exchanges can be implemented in different switching nodes.
