Telecom Cost Management Finds Highly Useful Tool in I2Gemini's LCA

By David Sims, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Recent information released by company officials about the i2Gemini’s LCA identify it as a Local Call Analyzer, a multi-purpose system containing a complete set of local calling area information for all points within the United States.

With the LCA product, in fact, users have access to all NPA (News - Alert)/NXXs local to any number, local calling rates for any NPA/NXX, identification of which NPA/NXXs are local to your POPs, all rate tables you’d need and identification of local service between any two points.

The way company officials explain it, the LCA Enterprise database give users “freedom to do things your way,” calling it “a complete database of information which includes built-in queries for use with the LCA database.”

It also helps determine the optimum placement of POPs to maximize coverage, and it has a reverse option, allowing determination of who can call a given NPA/NXX locally. It also lets you optimize off-net VoIP traffic.

And the product lets you query local calling areas and rates -- if you want add-on VoIP-IT, that can find terminating switched access rates and costs on an NPA/NXX level “within or between all calling areas in the United States,” company officials say.

Last month TMC’s (News - Alert) Susan J. Campbell wrote that 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.
