IP Voice Termination


Product Description


Expertise in both broadband and telephony make our Provider an ideal company to deliver you Internet Protocol (IP) Voice Termination services. Provider's IP Voice Termination service is a cost-effective way for you to terminate telephone calls to over 250 countries while taking advantage of IP technology. IP Voice Termination service provides an IP-based connection for voice traffic exchange with other service providers. Once connected to the Provider's OC-192 multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) network, with over 1,700 access points and over 16,000 routes, you will benefit from softswitch technology that achieves quality comparable to the public switched telephone network (PSTN).


How it Works


Traditionally, long distance (LD) providers convert IP voice traffic to time division multiplex (TDM) and hand the traffic to their LD provider for termination. In many instances, the LD provider then converts that traffic back to IP to traverse their LD network, converts the traffic once again to TDM and terminates the call. With IP Voice Termination, you can hand your IP voice traffic directly to the Provider. The Provider will transport the IP voice call streams across its OC-192 MPLS network and terminate the calls to the PSTN. No longer will you need to purchase or manage the gateways necessary to make these conversions - the Provider does it all! First, your IP voice traffic traverses the IP transport to the Session Border Controller (SBC). The SBC provides the necessary firewall protection to give your traffic an additional level of protection on the Provider's IP voice infrastructure. The Provider's media gateways terminate your IP voice calls to the TDM circuit-switched network. Calls are terminated either domestically or internationally to the PSTN via TDM.
