Wholesale VoIP Company Alcazar Networks Offers Solution for CNAM Lookup Services

Wholesale VoIP company Alcazar Networks has a whole host of services it can list on its resume including wholesale origination, wholesale termination, local termination, dialer termination and toll free termination; but there is an additional service that the company wants to spread the word about – its CNAM services.


Alcazar Networks, which was founded in 2003, provides a wide range of services and targets companies looking for wholesale origination, wholesale termination, T38 fax compatibility, nationwide e911 (News - Alert), CNAM publishing and lookups, directory listings and API based configurations all from one company.

CNAM, which stands for caller name, is a premium feature in the United States that is often lumped together with other premium phone services such as call waiting and call forwarding. When a call is being received by a CNAM caller ID subscriber, both the caller name and telephone number are being displayed – a service the caller ID subscriber has to pay for. Typically, the caller name that is displayed does not come from the phone’s memory and is passed to the caller ID subscriber by the local phone company, according to Alcazar Networks officials. Whenever they receive a call for a caller ID subscriber, they look up the caller name in a central CNAM database so it can be displayed on the receiving party’s phone display.

“Alcazar Networks offers a solution for Caller Name (CNAM) lookup services in a national database for the access and delivery of the name of the originating party to carriers that are looking to provide their customers with caller name identification services,” company officials explain on their website.

“This service is independent of the traffic flow, and may be used regardless of whether or not the call traffic traverses our network,” they state.

The wholesale VoIP company offers customers with built-in available features such as CNAM publishing and CNAM lookups in all of its footprint of nearly 3,300 rate centers. Moreover, Alcazar Networks promises more than 1,400,000 DIDs available for instant provisioning.

“It all adds up to one of the nation's premier VoIP networks, servicing most major cities of the United States,” Alcazar Networks officials explain.

In other company news, this past summer Alcazar Networks spread the word that there is finally a low-cost local termination option for VoIP calls, thanks to Alcazar Networks.

Alcazar Networks expanded its resume of services to now include wholesale local termination (outbound), an offering that promises to provider carriers with substantial cost savings as customers can terminate calls locally at roughly 50 percent of standard intrastate charges. Traffic may be originated anywhere, then handed to Alcazar Networks over a SIP handoff (dedicated facility or public Internet).
