The success of a VoIP call relies on the functionality of a hosted softswitch. Due to the growth of VoIP calling throughout the commercial and residential sectors, the need for a quality hosted softswitch solution has become integral in that growth.

The economic downturn forced many changes in the corporate world, and telephony is definitely one of them. According to this iTel Billing report, companies are looking for more flexibility at a better price, especially when it comes to communications. The obvious choice where telephony is concerned was the VoIP model. 

The growth in the VoIP solution industry is up beyond the 30 percent range. The reason for this is not only cost savings, but companies spend less time managing the VoIP model than previous telephony models, which means more time to focus on core competencies.

REVE Systems is fairly new, only starting in the IP-based communications industry in 2003. But since that time, it has found clients in 65 countries with more than 1,400 VoIP telecommunications service providers relying on the company for its client’s mobile solutions, and more recently, the company’s hosted softswitch solutions.

 Because REVE offers a hosted softswitch solution, there is no need for companies to invest in infrastructure to utilize the service. Through a simple monthly payment option, companies can take advantage of the hosted softswitch solution known as iTel Switch Plus. This option is best utilized by small and medium size IP telephony platforms.

 REVE’s hosted softswitch offers a complete suite of VoIP service, all in one platform. This is unique in the hosted softswitch industry as most other options don’t offer a VoIP billing system, which means you won’t have to hassle with installing and maintaining billing software on your end. 

With this solution, you’ll receive hosted softswitch managed service every day of the week, every minute of the day. Something companies find alluring is that the startup time is fast. In fact, with hosted softswitch offerings, everything can be set up and ready to roll in just a few days. Plus, you can operate the hosted softswitch solution from REVE using a mobile phone on a data network.

Another significant benefit to choosing REVE is that the iTel Switch Plus platform offers robust security, with multiple layers of secured access control, and versatility. The service can be deployed in a single server platform, as well as in a distributed architecture. Larger IP carriers choose the platform because of its redundant and scalability qualities. However, the stand-alone version is a popular choice for smaller operations.

Finally, this hosted softswitch is a popular choice in that the platform’s association with iTel Byte Saver makes it work behind network address translation as well as private IP. This kind of flexibility allows the solution to blend into even the more complex of environments.
