Innovation in Wholesale VoIP Termination

There are two sides to the wholesale VoIP market. There are those carriers that sell capacity and service, including termination, which are carried over their own facilities to other carriers. In this scenario, capacity and termination services are traded among carriers to supplement one another’s facilities. Alternatively, there are also those providers, including MNOs, MVNOs, calling card companies, enterprise customers and Tier 1 carriers, which lack an in-place network entirely or in a specific geography and want to white-label and resell hosted VoIP services. 

Why VoIP Termination Is Critical

By Manoj Jain, Chief Operating Officer, Bankai

When a caller dials the number, not caring if calling a landline, mobile or VoIP line, the caller’s service provider needs to route the call, perhaps via the network of another carrier to deliver that call to an end point not on their owned network. The route and carriers involved depend on cost, quality, available capacity at a location, and time and day of week. Termination services route calls through providers to the recipient, regardless of whether the call is PSTN- or Internet originated or directed.

Streamlining VoIP Termination Services

By Manoj Jain, Chief Operating Officer, Bankai

VoIP traffic is increasing because it is a more affordable alternative to time-division multiplexing (TDM) calling and satisfies the need for wholesale termination arrangements to ensure that calls reach their intended destination regardless of whether the originating carrier has facilities in that geography. A carrier’s success depends highly on which carrier it chooses for VoIP termination services due to its impact on expenses, revenues, profit margins, and, ultimately, customer satisfaction.

While previously, large carriers worked directly with one another to create termination agreements, the number of wholesale providers has since increased and smaller carriers with tighter local presence have emerged, creating a competitive marketplace with additional options for carriers. The larger operators now need to position themselves such that the smaller carriers can interact and exchange information with them easily.

Challenges in VoLTE: Why Deployment Has Been Slower Than Expected

By Manoj Jain, Chief Operating Officer, Bankai Group

Technology throughout the telecom industry is continuously evolving to enable fast and efficient communication. Voice over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) is a revolutionary service that is taking the industry by storm, replacing antiquated voice networks with faster and more reliable LTE networks. VoLTE is an entirely new way of transmitting voice, allowing wireless carriers to deliver voice services over existing data networks rather than traditional circuit-switched 2G or 3G networks. In this case, voice becomes just another packetized application on the user’s phone, resulting in a new standard for high-speed wireless communication that delivers a clear and reliable signal, while making more efficient use of existing network resources.

These types of issues can lead to negative ratings and high customer churn rates.
