Wholesale Carrier Services: in Keeping With the Times

By: Kristen

The way we communicate has changed drastically with the advent of the Internet and nothing is the same as before. The capabilities for communication has grown over the years. First there were analog phones. These gave way to cordless phones and mobile phone handsets that enabled users to remain connected even on the move. Gradually, a new and more innovative means of communication is making its presence felt. It is called VoIP, wherein the calls are routed over the Internet to destinations as diverse as one can imagine. The public switched telephony networks are now a thing of the past in many areas of the globe.

One can associate VoIP with quite a few benefits, and there is a strong demand for the same among both individual as well as institutional users. The retail market for VoIP services and solutions is therefore a growing one. There is also a concomitant increase in the wholesale voice domain. As a matter of fact, the wholesale carrier services have registered a significant improvement over the last couple of years.

There is a large untapped market waiting to be explored. The opportunities to earn revenues are equally amazing. As a matter of fact, the providers of wholesale carrier services are in the most comfortable position. And many of them are making the most of the trends in industry and consumer behavior. They are offering VoIP carrier services that are quick and efficient and routes that are least expensive. The VoIP carriers are enabling many institutions to accrue large savings in their telecommunication costs - quite a feat anyway one looks at it.

There are quite a few VoIP providers of repute that offer wholesale carrier services to Tier 2 carriers, resellers as well as corporate clients. The VoIP carriers ensure that the routes - to be used for voice termination - are among the best. In addition, the intense competition in the market guarantees that the cost of these services are industry leading. Moreover, a lot of attention is paid to the issues pertaining to quality of services as well. At the end of the day, good call quality with the least number of call drops and the maximum amount of voice clarity is all that matters.

Any potential wholesale carrier needs to have a large base of customers that are loyal to its services in other sectors. The scale of operation - more often than not- has to be large. The necessary infrastructure and equipment needed for call termination should also be procured to serve customers with high-quality VoIP services. Servers, switches, and gateways have to be in place, before a VoIP carrier service provider can get started.
