Compass Global Inc., a leading operator of IP-based international voice and data communications networks, is using Sansay Inc.s VSX VoIP session control systems to minimize operating costs while maximizing the QoS to hard-to-reach destinations.
We had originally been looking to complement our TDM switch with VoIP, but it quickly became obvious that the world was moving toward a global VoIP-to-VoIP infrastructure, said Dean Cary, founder and CEO of Compass Global. Sansay was the only company who really listened, understood and appreciated the significance of what we wanted to do.
As a result of converting to an IP-based infrastructure based on Sansay systems, and tight integration with their in-house Global Traffic Management software, Compass Global enjoyed immediate gains in performance and profitability for both its wholesale and retail networks.
Before we migrated to Sansay, our TDM switch alone cost between $75,000 (and) $90,000 per month for power and other environmentals, with DS3s, SS7 links and other facilities adding another $100,000, Cary said. With the new IP infrastructure we can replace what used to take up 2,500 square feet with four Sansay units the size of DVD players and consume less power than a hair dryer. Were saving $180,000 (to) $200,000 each month and our quality improved dramatically by eliminating conversions of voice traffic between TDM and IP.
