The Intelligent Transportation Era Is Here

Over the last several years, tech industry pundits have been predicting that the Internet of Things (IoT) will take over the transportation industry. It’s always been a matter of when, not if, this will happen.

There is No Substitute for Optical Transport

In today’s fast-paced digital environment, high-volume data and applications must flow seamlessly and securely between global financial markets, media hubs, data centers and service provider networks.

GTT recently launched its new Optical Transport service, leveraging the company’s subsea and terrestrial fiber-optic network that is optimized for latency performance.

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.
