MEGACO – Media Gateway Control
This VoIP (Voice over IP) term is also known as the ITU-T (International Telecommunications Union – Telecommunications Standardization Sector) H.248 standard and represents a collaboration between the ITU-T and the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). MEGACO is a media gateway control protocol used to create, modify and delete media streams across a media gateway in addition to negotiating the media formats to be used. Since its initial standardization, the IETF have relinquished any further development responsibilities to the ITU.
