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.

VoIP Services Market Predicted to Increase at Unprecedented Level

Experts are predicting that the global VoIP services market will grow at a CAGR of 9.1 percent between 2016 and 2021, at which point the market will reach $140 billion, an unprecedented level — meaning it’s a great time to buy, sell and trade VoIP services.

Just recently, BridgeVoice launched its new Automated Carrier Platform, BridgeVoice Pluto. It’s an online platform offering one-stop trading and settlement for SMS and voice. The platform features a quality-based routing component, which enables competitive pricing and real-time prepaid and near to real-time postpaid billing solutions. It can also serve as a gateway and class-4 switching solution, generating stable revenue streams in unstructured telecom ecosystems.

The BridgeVoice Pluto assists in buying, selling and trading high-end, wholesale VoIP routes and termination services.  It enables resellers to customize and brand a fully-supported, scalable and modular carrier platform to offer a secure VoIP transaction portal with minimal CAPEX and reduced OPEX. Customers also gain full visibility into network and termination activities, spread across multiple carriers.  On the network side, customers obtain preferred choice routing, assured quality route termination and 100-percent Calling Line Identification assistance.

“As BridgeVoice expands its global carrier services, we decided at the launch of our Automated Carrier Platform and White Label offering that these services required a name to convey that we connect the world,” explained Bankim Brahmbhatt, CEO and President of BridgeVoice.  “BridgeVoice Pluto suggests the vision of an interconnected and vast universe that is continuously expanding. Our automated platform provides VoIP service providers and carriers worldwide with access to a seamless, secure web-based portal, which similarly will continue to expand and connect a vast universe of customers and partners.”

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.

What WebRTC Enables

By Manoj Jain, Chief Operating Officer, Bankai

Web real-time communication (WebRTC) has the potential to transform the World Wide Web by embedding peer-to-peer sharing applications into browsers and enabling live video streaming over mobile phones. WebRTC is fully supported by Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, for example, thereby enabling websites to become service providers. While this situation could increase competition for voice carriers, it also provides additional revenue opportunities for entrenched carriers via unified communication services (UCS), mobile text, video and voice services, and WebRTC, both as a platform and for WebRTC termination to PSTN and mobile networks.

WebRTC is simple to deploy via JavaScript code on any device that can run a web browser.  WebRTC provides an IP-based open source application program interface (API), and depending on one’s point of view, can be compatible or competitive with VoIP. WebRTC is only available through browsers, while VoIP can be used over several protocols. More importantly, WebRTC enables web developers to build VoIP into their web-based applications. WebRTC and VoIP can be used concurrently, and WebRTC allows developers to embed VoIP service directly into a web browser.

In an Era of Rapid Transformation, One Global Network Solutions Firm Enhances Its Leadership

The telecommunications industry is undergoing a period of rapid transformation, so it’s no wonder that companies are turning to seasoned industry experts to help stay the course.

Global network solutions company QuadGen, for instance, recently appointed Amy Moini as Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Mrs. Moini is an industry veteran with more than two decades of hardware, software, services and telecommunications experience to her name. She previously served as the Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development at Numerex Corp., where she oversaw the company’s carrier partner footprint expansion, as well as the expansion of its MSO presence and footprint, and multinational global customer engagements.

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.

Experience Matters When Selecting a Network Engineering Solutions Provider

Albert Einstein once stated that the only source of knowledge is experience, and this is especially true when it comes to network engineering, where small mistakes can lead to costly consequences. It’s vital to look for a company that can offer years of experience along with cutting-edge solutions.

One such company is QuadGen, a leading global network solutions company that recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary along with the launch of a new website.

Enterprise Is the Current Buzz, But Large Venues Are Still the Biz

In Roman theology, Janus – the god of transition – is famously depicted as having two faces to represent the dichotomous nature of change which includes beginnings and endings, opportunities and threats, and wins and losses. This ancient perspective is still applicable today. As author and Fortune columnist Dan Lyons observes, “Transformation is hard – but not changing can sometimes be fatal.”
