Recommendation ITU-T H.248.76 defines the filter group package. Using this package, the media gateway controller (MGC) can create and manage groups of filters, then apply those filter-groups to the media gateway (MG) terminations and streams.

While the filter group package provides the framework for managing filters, it does not provide protocol elements for defining the filters' concrete match conditions and actions. Instead, it relies on using elements from other packages, for example, the packages defined by Recommendation ITU‑T H.248.43.
