A VoIP switch or softswitch is a central device that connects telephone calls from one network to the other via Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks.
Speedflow Communications, which develops VoIP switches, has just released a carrier-grade softswitch –the MediaCore Class 4 Softswitch. The softswitch comes with integrated billing capabilities designed for VoIP wholesale carriers of all sizes.
The MediaCore Class 4 VoIP Softswitch has been designed from the ground up to be much more productive and responsive, powering a greater level of synergy for developers and customers. The solution also includes an enhanced Call Detail Records (CDR) generation mechanism, as well as dial peer routing algorithms that drive client’s productivity and flexibility. Another benefit is that it provides context routing for voice providers with geographically distributed server clusters. The sophisticated and tailored routing can increase call completion by up to 15 percent, which will result in minimized routine workflow.
Additionally, the VoIP switch comes complete with multicurrency options, enabling VoIP companies to accept different currencies without having to worry about converting their price lists and balances from one currency into another.
The new version of the Class 4 Softswitch is available starting in June 2012. The company has also set a roadmap for the following six months promising new accomplishments, empowering businesses to compete better on fast-evolving VoIP market
