NetNumber, the US-based provider of centralized signaling and routing controller (CSRC) solutions, and Voipfuture, the developer of edge technology for monitoring and analyzing voice quality in IP networks, have announced the launch of a fully-automated and intelligent routing system for voice services. This is the industry’s first intelligent platform to conduct traffic analysis for media and signaling, and transform quality information into routing actions.
According to the announcement, the system will provide domestic telecommunications companies and international carriers with the capability to automatically reroute traffic in real-time in case of media quality deterioration. The rerouting and route recovery decisions will be based on the specified policies of the communication service providers (CSP).
It is stated that the availability of automatic rerouting capabilities allows CSPs to improve quality by choosing more efficient downstream carriers, thereby attracting additional traffic from customers as well as OTTs and optimizing termination costs. Moreover, valuable traffic can receive preferential management, preserving high-definition audio encoding and guaranteeing superior quality performance.
Pieter Veenstra, Senior Manager for Product Development, Security and Routing at NetNumber, said, “Least-cost routing will remain king. With this new capability we give telcos the option to factor in user experience – defined by their policies and standards.”
“VoLTE Roaming & All IP interconnections are all about voice quality. The growing demand for HD audio requires unique voice monitoring and media KPIs which puts Qrystal in the spotlight. When making routing decisions, our customers can now use our highly accurate quality data to find the sweet spot between cost and customer satisfaction,” said Eyal Ullert, Manager at Voipfuture. “Our cooperation with NetNumber adds a new dimension to VoIP traffic routing.”
In addition, the new quality-routing architecture is based on a thoroughly tested integration between Voipfuture’s Qrystal quality monitoring solution and NetNumber’s ALL-G™ TITAN Centralized Routing Engine, providing a virtualized infrastructure for all signaling control, routing policy enforcement and subscriber database services in the network.
