There are two sides to any wholesale VoIP
offering: origination and termination. Both are something service providers and resellers look at carefully to ensure robust features, optimum flexibility, and effective flexibility so differentiation can be achieved.
GlobalPOPS, a wholesale VoIP provider that serves carriers, service providers and resellers, paid attention to both sides of the wholesale VoIP coin when designing its offering. In particular, the company put an emphasis on reliability and redundancy.
On the origination side, GlobalPOPS offers inbound access for carriers using the its own IP
network. This means services can be accessed in markets across the U.S. Numbers can be activated nationwide and routed dynamically, then used immediately using GlobalPOPS’ application programming interface (API
By choosing GlobalPOPS’ wholesale VoIP origination, providers can avoid the capital expenditure associated with building a physical “POP.” Instead, a national or local virtual presence can be easily set up in a remote city or town. This accelerates the process of expanding into new markets, and reduces the use of toll-free numbers for enhanced service applications.
GlobalPOPS offers a variety of flexible billing options for its wholesale VoIP services. Packages can be designed using per minute, per user/device or per port billing.
Termination is the other side of the wholesale VoIP coin. Here again, GlobalPOPS thought hard about what resellers need, and designed its service around those specifics. GlobalPOPS IP-originated calls terminate directly to the public switched telephone network (PSTN
In order to help providers bring long distance VoIP access to residential and commercial customers, GlobalPOPS offers U.S. and international wholesale termination with no volume commitments. The service includes Web-based back office tools for fast setup and integration into new or existing VoIP infrastructure.
This means that a service provider can connect its switch to GlobalPOPS’ infrastructure, and quickly begin transporting interstate and intrastate long distance traffic over a high-speed network. There is no need to negotiate with multiple vendors or manage complex interconnection sites and contracts.
Elimination of capital expenditures, accelerated expansion into new markets, and flexible billing options are also advantages of GlobalPOPS’ wholesale VoIP termination just as they are for the company’s origination services.
