1. A gateway for communicating telecommunication information, comprising:

  • one or more packetization modules operable to receive first data packets from a first broadband network using a first data communications protocol and to extract first telecommunication information associated with a first subscriber from the first data packets, the packetization modules further operable to receive second data packets from a second broadband network using a second data communication protocol and to extract second telecommunication information associated with a second subscriber from the second data packets, wherein the first and second broadband networks include any of digital subscriber line, cable, and wireless platforms, wherein the first and second data communication protocols includes any of Internet Protocol, Asynchronous Transfer Mode, and Frame Relay protocols, wherein the gateway is operable to receive packets from the first subscriber via a first network access device comprising one of a digital subscriber line multiplexer (DSLAM), a cable modem termination system (CMTS), and a base station controller (BSC) external to the gateway using the first data communication protocol in the first broadband network and receives packets from the second subscriber via a second network access device comprising one of a DSLAM, a CMTS, and a BSC external to the gateway using the second data communication protocol in the second broadband network, the second network access device being of a different type from the first network access device.
