Softswitch systems replace the traditional circuit switch with a softswitch, which combines generic hardware with open-standard hardware. The networks that use softswitch technology belong to a group known as next generation networks (NGNs). Softswitch technologies separate the call processing from the physical switching handled by media gateways (MGs), which allows a common software platform to handle multiple functions.
The flexibility and scalability of softswitch networks allows vendors to specialize in one area. The roll-out strategy indicates a slow progression from time division multiplexing (TDM) technology to softswitch technology in the US, but international leaders offer the technology worldwide. With a softswitch network you can:
1. Offer your clients a carrier-grade softswitch VoIP, which stands for Voice over Internet Protocol.
2. Use softswitch technology providers to create custom solutions for your business.
3. Connect to an SIP softswitch to take advantage of softswitch technology without installing your own system.
Deliver carrier-grade VoIP service with a VoIP softswitchA softswitch manufacturer specializing in softswitch VoIP helps integrate the new technology seamlessly. Some manufacturers offer a scalable option and the ability to cross multiple Internet protocol (IP) networks. Look for companies that offer comprehensive VoIP conversion.
Trust the experts to create your soft switch solutionGlobal leaders in softswitch technology offer an all-in-one solution, including software, hardware and installation. Most softswitch technology providers work with multiple business models to create the solutions to move your business into new technology.
Route your network through a session initiation protocol (SIP) soft switchSome companies don't want to install a softswitch system in their own network. Whether it is the upfront cost or the slow progression to softswitch technology, you may prefer to route your telecom functions through an SIP softswitch provider.
- Softswitch technology provides a less expensive way to improve quality and functionality. Factor the savings into your calculations when you determine whether your company will benefit from the technology.
