TransNexus provides a range of solutions designed specifically for managing VoIP networks.
Least Cost Routing
Not too long ago, optimizing least cost routing was a relatively straight-forward exercise that could be managed part time by an industrious billing or switch technician. This is no longer the case. With TransNexus solutions, you can easily copy and paste rate provisioning from carrier rate plans, Support up to 100,000,000 different VoIP routes, base LCR tables on inter-state rates, intra-state rates and customized local calling areas, and convert rate plans based on LATAs, OCNs and Tiers into a routing table and rate plans based on NPA-NXX-X breakouts.
Virtually all enterprises and most retail VoIP service providers route calls based on the dialed telephone number. This is a problem when the called party has ported their number to different carrier. Routing the call to the dialed number directs the call toward the carrier that owns the number, not the carrier that serves the subscriber. The call will be completed, but the enterprise or service provider originating the call will get a surprise when the termination cost is greater than expected.
Fraud has been an issue for traditional telephone companies for years, but it was never a factor for VoIP until recently. Call fraud in the VoIP industry is quickly becoming rampant and often goes unnoticed, but can have painful results. According to Revector, a U.K.-based fraud management company, some telcos are losing up to $150 million per year in fraudulent calls.
Quality of Service Controls
Quality of Service (QoS) can be a major issue for your customers. How do you guarantee that packet traffic for a voice connection will not be delayed or dropped due interference from other lower priority traffic? For the end user, large delays are burdensome and can cause bad echos. Jitter causes strange sound effects, and packet loss causes interruptions. Most QoS solutions available today are expensive and require you to add probes to your network.
