Meeting Regulations With A Lawful Interception Gateway

A lawful interception gateway is used primarily by law enforcement agencies to intercept VoIP, voice, fax and data communications. However it may also be used by companies and even individuals to capture these same types of communications for reference, quality assurance and to comply with Government regulations.

A lawful interception gateway can be used to collect selected communications and other information mandated for the States in which your business operates as well as meet any overriding Federal requirements. You may want to monitor and record all voice calls for both internet and analog  telephone services that are used for your business.
