Some analysts have accused mobile operators of diverting network support away from VoIP applications because they do not have the capacity to handle those services alongside other applications that are easier to monetize, according to IT Web. Mobile operators have denied the claims, but there are still rumors that key players in the industry practice active traffic management that may prioritize applications that lessen demands on networks.
Mobile operators that want to show their customers they support the services that are in high demand, and thus reap the rewards of better satisfaction rates, can make strategic investments in their network architecture.
Operators can choose media gateways for reliable VoIP
As the VoIP market matures, a new generation of vendors are emerging and offering equipment that can better meet service providers' needs for reliable network strength. High performance media gateways from manufacturers like TelcoBridges can help mobile operators and resellers expand their network footprints and handle a higher volume of calls.
When the TMG3200 2U VoIP/Tmedia Gateway™ was first released, the company announced it could complete between 75 and 90 calls per second (CCPS) for SIP-SS7 and SS7-SIP when using text call detail records (CDR) and Routing Scripts. This exceeds previously released performance reports from other players in the industry by 70 to 100 percent.
"With the convergence of services toward IP host-based platforms, our customers are requesting more and more performance from their gateway solutions," said chief technology officer Carl Boulanger in a press release about the product's success.
One of the main reasons for TelcoBridges' product success is that the firm designs and manufactures all of its devices with reliability at the core. Solutions are backed with full 1+1 and n+1 redundancy to prevent network fail-overs, even if there are sudden spikes in network traffic. Moreover, they are built to keep calls open even if there are traffic disruptions to ensure service providers can offer communication stability regardless of the applications customers are running.
VoIP support benefits operators
Offering dependable VoIP capabilities can prove beneficial to operators because they can route voice traffic over IP-based access networks, which is a more affordable solution than delivering calls through cellular architecture, according to BMI-TechKnowledge Group.
Moreover, operators that prepare their networks to support VoIP services can capitalize on the trend that continues to grow. Subscribers around the world are recognizing the benefits of IP-based telephony and are foregoing their traditional public switched telephone networks at a rapid rate.
