New insights for wholesale VoIP providers (IT Toolbox Blogs)



A new system integration partnership between TransNexus and Telcobridges will bring a series of pumped-up services to the wholesale VoIP market, including enhanced fraud detection capabilities, local number portability, least-cost routing (LCR) plus a wide range of QoS (quality of service) analytics. 

TransNexus specializes in applications for managing VoIP networks, while TelcoBridges is a designer and manufacturer of carrier-grade VoIP media gateways and session border controllers (SBC) based in Canada.

TransNexus’ NexOSS is a suite of integrated back office applications that provide VoIP least-cost routing, traffic reporting and fraud detection capabilities that can automatically suspend suspicious routes from the routing table. NexOSS also makes it easier for VoIP operators to provision call routes, establish call rates, monitor network traffic and produce billing reports.

TelcoBridges’ Tmedia Gateways and TransNexus’ NexOSS have been deployed and working together in carrier networks since 2010. However, the new integration combines the capabilities of TelcoBridges’ TSBC5000 Session Border Controller with TransNexus’ NexOSS on multiple levels.

For example, enhanced SIP integration will now provide the ability to centralize call routing, route provisioning, rating and traffic reporting. TelcoBridges’ SBC consults NexOSS on a call-by-call basis using SIP. In addition, new CDR (call detail record) integration will allow NexOSS to generate real-time traffic reports and rated call detail records for billing purposes.

TelcoBridges’ SBC now writes CDRs in real-time to NexOSS, allowing it to extract relevant information related to traffic volumes, QoS and revenue generation for the benefit of wholesale carries.

However, the partnership’s fraud detection capabilities are taking on new importance. These can automatically detect fake calls, blocking or diverting them to a safe destination in real-time. They also can detect fraudulent calls created by traffic pumping, PBX hacking, call transfer and call forwarding.

Key Takeaways:

• The combination of the technologies provides a useful solution for retail service providers

• It delivers more control and visibility into a service provider’s network in terms of security, quality of service and profitability, while also controlling fraud.

• In addition, they enable a full suite of business optimization functions for SIP trunking that can create new revenue streams and reduce operating expenses.
