  2. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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 ?

  6. 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.
