NetNumber and Voipfuture join forces to improve routing of high-value VoIP traffic

LOWELL, Mass. and Hamburg, Germany – June 18th 2019

  • First intelligent platform in the market which performs traffic analysis for media and signaling and turns quality information into routing actions
  • Both companies will showcase the new capabilities at the ITW, June 23-26, 2019 Atlanta, GA

NetNumber and Voipfuture launch the first fully-automated and intelligent routing system for voice services. It provides CSPs (domestic telcos and international carriers) with the capability to automatically reroute traffic in real-time in case of media quality degradation. The rerouting and route restoration decisions are based on specified CSP policies.

  • The availability of automatic rerouting capabilities allows CSPs to improve quality by selecting better performing downstream carriers, to attract additional traffic from customers as well as OTTs and to optimize termination costs.
  • Valuable traffic (e.g. VoLTE traffic with HD codecs, corporate traffic etc.) can receive preferential treatment preserving high definition audio encoding and guaranteeing premium quality performance.

The new quality-routing architecture is based on a tightly tested integration between Voipfuture’s Qrystal quality monitoring solution and NetNumber’s ALL-GÔ TITAN Centralized Routing Engine. A more detailed description can be found in a common white paper entitled “Redefining Quality-based Routing for Voice Services” that has been published today.

“Least-cost routing will remain king. With this new capability we give telcos the option to factor in user experience – defined by their policies and standards.”, said Pieter Veenstra, Senior Manager for Product Development, Security and Routing at NetNumber

“VoLTE Roaming & All IP interconnections are all about voice quality. The growing demand for HD audio requires unique voice monitoring and media KPIs which puts Qrystal in the spotlight. When making routing decisions, our customers can now use our highly accurate quality data to find the sweet spot between cost and customer satisfaction,” said Eyal Ullert, Manager at Voipfuture. “Our cooperation with NetNumber adds a new dimension to VoIP traffic routing.”

The two companies will use the ITW2019 event to introduce the described solution capabilities to International Carriers

Voipfuture introduces new KPI system for VoIP media quality

Press Release

Voipfuture introduces new KPI system for VoIP media quality

New white paper: “Why Next-Generation Voice Services Need Next-Generation KPIs”

Hamburg, July 26, 2017. Whereas there are well defined KPIs to assess a network’s SIP signaling performance there is no comparable means to determine media quality. Therefore Voipfuture announces a new KPI system which offers different perspectives on the media quality of a VoIP service.

  • Service Perspective: How do your customers judge your service?
  • Network Perspective: How is the network’s transport quality and how does it influence the user experience?
  • Session Perspective: Do issues stem from persistent issues or isolated incidents?
  • Volume Perspective: How is the overall quality in terms of call minutes?
  • Midpoint Perspective: How is traffic quality in a specific network segment?
  • End-to-End Perspective: How is the overall quality per call?

The KPI system presented in Voipfuture’s new white paper, therefore serves as a vital management tool for telecommunications service providers. It not only explains different quality perspectives but provides KPIs to translate information into action.

Voipfuture technology uses fixed time slicing to create atomic units of media quality. These units are aggregated to different levels, providing data for different use cases. For example, call quality data is essential for customer experience management, but less helpful for root cause analysis. Time slice and session data on the other hand give valuable insights into the overall network and service quality and provide a better high-level overview.

Voipfuture’s KPI hexagon summarizes the most common perspectives on quality of VoIP services:

The Voipfuture media KPI system provides exactly these views on the media plane thereby complementing standard control plane KPIs

  • GMR – Good Minute Ratio
  • GSR – Good Stream Ratio
  • GCR – Good Call Ratio
  • CMR – Critical Minute Ratio
  • CSR – Critical Stream Ratio
  • CCR – Critical Call Ratio

Voipfuture is a premium voice quality analytics vendor providing tools for assessing, aggregating, analyzing, and visualizing voice quality information. Voipfuture products offer a precise view on media and control plane to communication service providers, wholesalers and enterprises.

This whitepaper is the second in a series of papers which aims stimulate discussion on how to measure and improve VoIP quality of experience.
