The article focuses on next-generation networks (NGNs). NGNs has various meanings but the International Telecommunication Union defines them as a convergence of circuit-switched networks, packet-switched Internet protocol networks and 3G mobile communications networks. These networks will be linked through gateways. Services under the NGN architecture, are isolated from underlying transport technologies, which makes it easier to transfer applications among various types of devices and networks.

    MEGACO or H.248 is a protocol enabling a centralized Softswitch (or MGC) to control MGs between Voice over Packet (VoP) networks and traditional ones. To analyze much deeper the real implementations it is useful to use a tracing system with intra and inter protocols correlation. For this reason...
