HTLT Technologies announced this week it has partnered with Software Synergy Inc. (SSI) to combine the SSI Universal Routing Solution with the HTLT NetPlan Product Suite, creating a complete solution for the best cost routing of domestic and international traffic.
The combined HTLT/SSI solution completes the feedback loop, the companies say. A service providers actual network usage models the networks traffic and routing requirements; traffic and routing requirements drive the networks provisioning operations; provisioning operations reconfigure the network; the reconfigured network generates new usage data; and so forth. The solution provides integrated platforms for automating each stage in the feedback loop, using a common holistic view of the network.
The HTLT/SSI solution delivers a reliable, best cost network reflecting the best routing expertise, optimal use of network assets and the data intelligence and leverage to take best advantage of access and transport suppliers, says HTLT Chairman Elliott Derk.
HTLT also announced a new offering NetPlan Express an adaptation of its premier NetPlan Product Suite for estimating termination costs for U.S. domestic telephone calls.
IXCs and VoIP vendors may see cataclysmic changes in their costs for terminating calls in the next few months, especially those vendors who have been relying on regulatory exemption from traditional access charges for IP-originated calls, says Michael T. Hills, president and founder of HTLT. NetPlan Express will enable a vendor to anticipate and determine the economic effects of these changes on its traffic costs so that its business plan can be adjusted to meet the challenge of higher costs or take advantage of opportunities for possibly lower costs.
The NetPlan model uses typical traffic databases adjusted for a clients inputs, and HTLTs ILEC and CLEC access rate database to determine the clients total termination costs according to three key assumptions all traffic rated per ILEC interstate and intrastate rates; IP-originated traffic terminated per interstate rates only; and IP-originated traffic terminated based on reciprocal compensation.
NetPlan Express also indicates the cost effects of possible regulatory changes under consideration by the FCC and compares ILEC and CLEC pricing.
