Termination Increases Visibility
VoIP termination helps connect users across the globe
The increased reliability and popularity of VoIP technology has resulted in a significant reduction of rates and gross margins of all voice traffic over the last ten years. However, VoIP has also driven traffic volumes exponentially (especially with international long distance calling) because it is now much more affordable for businesses and consumers.
VoIP has also eliminated geographic boundaries and made it much easier for carriers to interconnect with one another. Installation intervals for international services have been reduced from 2-3 months to 2-3 days because of VoIP technology. In addition, it is much less expensive to connect to other carriers today due to VoIP technology. Back in the 90's, it would have cost thousands of dollars to connect to an overseas carrier for wholesale purposes. But today, the only cost might be an incremental cost in the bandwidth at your switch site.
