What really is LCR? In laymen’s term when a call is placed the carrier through which the call is made searches for the least cost to get the call across to the other point. This is a cost effective method of communicating. There are some things that you need to note about LCR. The software service you choose should provide a wide range of carrier service and allow you to add fraud protection after the IP address is authorized. The service should also allow you the ease of customization. This is inclusive in many softwares which are widely available
Another method to assure cost effectiveness is LRN i.e. Location Routing Number. LRN Since many of the numbers with country code has been moved between other networks there is a possibility that you may be routing on dialed digits. Misrouted calls cost more than normal. There are LRN services that help you route accurately. This is also the reason why it has become so easy to switch networks without the need for customers to change their numbers. This has not only created a competitive environment for telecom and mobile network carriers but also given customers the independence of choosing the right service without being weighed down by contracts. Good software can provide easy to use service that is accessible through SIP or REST API. The LRN service you use should be low cost and give extended results. Some companies even provide DNS and ENUM support along with SIP support. You can also avail the benefit of no minimum commitment. LRN only contributes to the effectiveness of least cost routing.
Many new services now include SIP termination which is normally outbound calling. Outbound rates differ from provider to provider. It is important to not only choose what is affordable but also quality outbound termination. The freedom that customers get in the access to network and switching them is a very attractive aspect of turnkey solutions. One of the best aspects is data analytics which are provided to the customers. This allows them to refer and review their switch routes and other information which was previously limited. The kind of control provided allows them to keep an eye on the pricing and even analyze all the information gathered by the equipment.
