messaging switch

messaging switch

A messaging hub that provides protocol conversion between several messaging systems. Examples of switches include Soft-Switch's EMX, HP's OpenMail and the earlier MAILbus from Digital. A messaging switch differs from a messaging gateway in that it supports more than two protocols and connections as well as providing management and directory integration. See also message switch.
