ATL RespOrg Exhibits Multi-Carrier Routing Arrangement Solutions at ITEXPO
By Erin Monda, TMCnet Contributor
ATL is an independent Responsible Organization (RespOrg) providing multi-carrier routing arrangements that give advantages that no single-carrier arrangement can provide. This maximizes the way toll free numbers can work for you by offering the following services:
Least Cost Routing.
Even if you have an existing contract with a carrier, ATL can show you how to remain in compliance with that contract and still benefit from least cost routing. Imagine being able to seamlessly route your numbers using complex algorithms and mappings to take advantage of the best rates. This process is transparent– ATL handles the hard parts.
ATL is monitoring the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) for government mandates that will certainly affect the telecom industry. It will help ensure its clients are in compliance with any relevant mandates. If a disaster should occur and a customer’s primary carrier goes down, ATL Communications (News - Alert) can reroute traffic to a secondary carrier within minutes of being notified. And it does this 24/7. If you contact ATL before the next disaster, it can have this option in place for you!
So how does it work? Every toll free number in the US is controlled by a central database called SMS. ATL provides a service that interfaces between you (the owner of the toll free number) and this database. It is responsible for managing and administrating a client’s numbers for them. ATL does this for clients that have just a few numbers – and for those that have many thousands.
According to a statement put out by ATL, “We liken the toll free VoIP danger to a grenade… it’s only safe when the cotter pin is in place. ATL RespOrg Services is the cotter pin for all toll free VoIP grenades. Give your customers the confidence and peace of mind by having 100 percent end-to-end back up for every toll free number you sell. Our protection and security works immediately and inexpensively, helping your bottom line.”
And ATL’s president, Aelea Christofferson, will be speaking on Monday, at the 1:15 session, at a session titled “Is VoIP a Victim of Its Own Success? Maintaining Quality in the Wake of VoIP Proliferation.” If ITEXPO (News - Alert) attendees would like to make private appointments prior to the show, call 800-398-5777 and ask for Esther.
ATL RespOrg Services will be exhibiting at ITEXPO booth #526, sharing ideas about how to protect your toll free VoIP.
