For least cost routing providers, VoIP is offering a whole new area of opportunity, as its flexibility makes it possible to route all traffic through the most affordable route. Most VoIP companies are constantly seeking to provide service provider customers an efficient and effective method of deploying VoIP solutions. However, it’s common for them to have to dig a little deeper in order to find optimal routing functionality and address complex routing requirements.
A software company focused on providing least cost routing solutions to next-generation networks, TransNexus (News - Alert) was more than accommodating when it came to helping VoIP managed services company VoIP Logic achieve proper routing methods.
VoIP Logic (News - Alert) recently shared with TMCnet its successful experience with TransNexus. The interview follows below:
TMCnet: Please tell us about VoIP Logic and the solutions it offers.
VoIP Logic is a global provider of VoIP managed services, professional services and the creator of Cortex OSS for multi-system provisioning and management. VoIP Logic is focused on deploying, integrating and managing next-generation communications technology. As such, we pride ourselves on 100-percent carrier and service provider neutrality.
VoIP Logic enables communications service providers worldwide to build and scale complex enterprise, consumer, carrier-to-carrier and advanced voice solutions. From infrastructure to advanced integration, VoIP Logic provides a comprehensive set of systems and solutions for deploying flexible, tested, and scalable services using VoIP technology.
We provide systems from Cisco, Genband, BroadSoft (News - Alert), TransNexus, Acme Packet as well as our B/OSS package, Cortex, allowing our service provider customers to efficiently and effectively deploy complex VoIP solutions and, in turn, to address the needs of their customers with highly-customized VoIP offerings.
TMCnet: What caused VoIP Logic to seek out least cost routing solutions? What result was VoIP Logic looking to achieve?
With time, it became clear that service providers required advanced routing functionality that exceeded the capabilities of the various SBCs that we offer. The proper routing of domestic traffic is a challenge, particularly given the issue of local number portability; the same can be true of the routing of traffic to countries such as Brazil, Mexico and others. TransNexus’ solutions address these challenges rather well.
TMCnet: In your search for a provider, how did TransNexus appeal to VoIP Logic and why was it the perfect fit?
In our search, we examined the routing solutions offered by five providers. TransNexus’ solution won out, ultimately, because of its flexibility and wide breadth of functionality. Also, TransNexus worked closely with VoIP Logic to understand the nuances of each of our customers’ applications and to ensure that they were properly addressed at each stage of the deployment.
TMCnet: Please elaborate on VoIP Logic’s experience with working with TransNexus and the process of implementing the solutions.
Jim Dalton (News - Alert), CEO of TransNexus, and his colleagues are highly skilled, always ready to help with deployments and provide support when required. We’ve come to respect the manner in which they systematically address each deployment. Further, they’ve worked hard to understand the particulars of the Genband S3, the platform with which their systems are typically being integrated for VoIP Logic customers, and have changed their development roadmap to include modifications to their code to accommodate the S3 in a variety of ways.
TMCnet: Since deploying TransNexus’ solutions, how has VoIP Logic benefited? What was the ultimate result?
We’ve been able to better address some of the more complex routing requirements of a number of our customers. This, in turn, allows our customers to grow their volumes and their capacity requirements, both good, ultimately, for VoIP Logic.
