i2Gemini Offers Local Call Analyzer to Drive Telecom Cost Management

By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor

While telecommunications are a vital part of any business, they can also be an expensive aspect, putting pressure on businesses to reduce their communications spend wherever possible. This focus has gained traction with the rapid move to mobility as business professionals everywhere need to stay connected while on the go. How can a business fully leverage internal capabilities to ensure they are controlling such costs? The answer can be found in telecom cost management. 

i2Gemini is one company focused on telecom cost management, offering solutions that enable businesses to reduce telecommunications costs and increase organizational efficiency. The company offers the Local Call Analyzer (LCA), a multi-purpose system designed with a complete set of local calling area information for all points within the United States. 

When companies leverage the LCA, they gain instant access to a list of all NPA (News - Alert)/NXXs local for any number; local calling rates for any NPA/NXX; identification of which NPA/NXXs are local to your POPs; all rate tables for any NPA/NXX; identification of local service between any two points; determination of optimum placement of POPs to maximize coverage; optimization of off-net VoIP traffic; and a reverse option to allow determination of who can call a given NPA/NXX locally.

 To drive telecom cost management solutions for businesses of all sizes, the LCA Enterprise database provides complete information that includes built-in queries for use with the LCA Database. This provides for optimal freedom in the process; accurate and fast results; easy use; organized data with sample queries; value access to information on end offices, local calling areas, POP selection and mapping interfaces; and the ability to build custom applications. 

The ability to query local calling areas and rates contributes greatly to a company’s efforts to drive optimal telecom cost management. When VoIP-IT is added on to allow for terminating switched access rates to be found, as well as costs on an NPA/NXX level within or between all calling areas within the U.S., costs are streamlined. 

This telecom cost management platform allows the cost of IP originated traffic to use reciprocal compensation, FCC (News - Alert) rates or Traditional Switched Access charges through the use of a mix of inter-state and intrastate rates. This service from i2Gemini allows companies to make decisions regarding calling rates for voice communications services so that they mirror the strategy of the company, not just the overall cost structure.
