A hosted softswitch offers a number of key benefits, but can scare a VoIP service provider away if the solution is complicated to deploy and use. REVE Systems understands this challenge and developed iTel Switch Plus with an improved user interface and easy migration strategy that is designed to simplify the VoIP business and ready for a quick VoIP business rollout launch.This recent REVE Systems white paper explores the ‘easy-migration opportunity’ found in the company’s hosted softswitch, which comes integrated with the iTelbilling interface. The hosted iTel Switch Plus offered by REVE Systems is ready for a quick VoIP rollout and according to company officials, it takes less than a day for VoIP service providers to install the softswitch and get their VoIP business functional; if they choose iTel Switch Plus platform on hosted or licensed basis.
Integrated with iTel Switch Plus, iTel Billing allows users to easily handle multiple softswitches from a single billing interface. That means, a single PIN can be used within the iTel Switch Plus to drive all call origination devices, such as the mobile dialer, PC2phone dialer, IP devices and also the calling cards. Users can eliminate the complication of maintaining multiple PINs for multiple devices. iTel Billing, also available as a standalone billing product, enables the softswitch owners to view their active call reports without requiring a login.
Its’ adaptive routing feature also ensures that any route offline is detected prior to routing a call. As a result, calls are never sent over an offline route, making calling more efficient. The reseller friendly user interface also ensures quick and easy migration from other softswitches. When migration occurs, REVE Systems guarantees minimum downtime and clients are rarely inconvenienced. This hosted softswitch allows for the migration of any softswitch, as well as a real-time database in just a matter of hours. This process ensures that nothing changes for a provider’s clients.
The procedure for your hosted softswitch migration with REVE Systems demands only that you provide the access of the existing softswitch database to REVE and rest of the work is done by REVE’s engineers.
When migration process is initiated, REVE’s engineers match the old database with the iTel Switch Plus database, and install the converter application on switch owner’s database. The existing database is processed through the data migration application and then converted into the format of the iTel Switch Plus hosted softswitch database. Once this migration is complete, softswitch owner can find all the details of his old softswitch in iTel Switch Plus with full details of all customer PINs, reseller details and balance. With no changeover hassles or usage experience changes for your customers, your service remains unchanged, but your internal processes are streamlined.
If you are using another softswitch, you may want to consider the benefits provided in the hosted softswitch from REVE Systems.
