Dialtel, a provider of voice broadcasting services, has announced the scheduled release of its Least Cost Routing (LCR) for September 3rd, 2012.
Part of voice telecommunications, LCR is a process that picks the path of outbound communications traffic based on cost.
The company has operated for years with the goal of expanding its voice broadcasting network to be carrier grade, said Erik Scanlan CEO at Dialtel, adding that they have been using its own home grown billing system with great success and now it’s time to expand it further to the advantage of the company’s customers.
The company has seen that a great number of voice broadcasting companies are resellers for an established service provider and also some of these companies operate with their own source code.
Company officials said that for all the companies that operate with their own source code, it’s interesting to note how many of them have expanded their network to be carrier centric. The companies offering voice broadcasting services usually do not focus on this challenge.
Dialtel believes that it’s in an ideal position to meet this challenge. Company officials said that the biggest challenge for their company is the deployment of a new distributed database schema to handle the intense traffic profile that will be faced.
Company officials added that every call that is placed needs to dip into both an LRN/LNP database and also a LERG to determine proper jurisdiction of the call. Moreover, once the two dips complete performing, the LCR Look-up and carrier order for that single call is generated.
Plus, voice broadcasting also presents a challenge because of the high volume of short duration calls. Company officials said that it is much easier to ignore the challenge of LCR and plug into one major carrier that has all this technology, but the company feels that it is in the best interest of its customers to have all this technology in-house.
Company officials indicated that new products will be available to customers in the days after the new platform is released.
Earlier in May, DialTel signed multiple new agreements with carriers in order to power short duration dialer traffic.
