Tata Communications has announced enhanced voice peering, which enables direct voice traffic exchange between providers. This turn-key platform provides access to Tata’s network anywhere in the world, including the choice to use any type of interconnections. The voice peering solution also offers access to a complete and shared database of on-net numbers and access to an intelligent routing engine. By expanding the pool of on-net users, Tata’s voice peering solution helps to reduce overhead costs related with termination and settlement and to improve voice quality by avoiding unnecessary transcoding.
Voice peering allows the direct traffic exchange between service providers that have access to end users. Parties involved unite their network of end users to create large on-net communities.
Customers will realize several important benefits with this new voice peering service. Voice quality is enhanced because on-net calls terminate directly to the end-user, reducing call latency and avoiding multiple compressions and decompressions. A frequently updated database of subscriber numbers from suppliers ensures proper call routing. Voice peering also enables reduced settlement overhead and costs. And routing tables management is simplified because Tata provides a global end-to-end solution, removing the need to build and manage one-on-one relationships with a peering community.
