background

WCGS is a Hosted switch services Company that offers specialized

  • switching solutions for wholesale Telecommunications Carriers and
  • Prepaid Calling card Companies
  • WE currently switch in excess of 300 Million minutes per month for
  • our customers
  • Most of our switching has traditionally been TDM switching, but as we
  • All know, the world has gone VOIP and so has WCGS
  • Over the past 5 years our network has changed from 80 percent TDM
  • To 80 percent VOIP
Background
the quest to find a voip switch

Requirements we had for a switch

  • Flexibility
  • Scalability
  • Carrier Grade
  • Cost effective
  • Ability to easily Merge with our billing system
  • Ability to function as an SBC
  • Ability to provide Class 4 Carrier services
  • Ability to provide Class 5 Carrier services
The Quest to find a Voip Switch
commercial solution or open source

Believe it or not, we actually considered a number of

  • Commercial solutions .
  • After going through the pros and Cons of each solution we decided
  • to go Open Source and decided on Freeswitch.
  • When we considered the commercial alternatives we
  • found the following CONS:
      • Higher initial Cost to implement.
      • Less Flexibility.
      • In some cases closed or partially closed architecture.
      • High support Cost.
      • Pay by the feature mentality.
      • Lack of ability to meet all of our needs which are constantly
  • changing.
Commercial Solution or Open Source ?

Open Source Pro’s

  • Obviously Cost, however deploying and Maintaining open Source is
  • not Free.
  • Ability to mold a system into anything you want it to be.
  • In our case, we have integrated Freeswitch with our own custom
  • LCR Logic which provides for quality based LCR and gives us the
  • ability to do percentage based routing.
  • We have also completely integrated Freeswitch and the
  • Bat 1000 billing system to provide carrier billing, automated
  • shutdown based upon prepaid balances , carrier reconciliation
  • and rate management.
