“The launch of the enhanced Carrier VoIP service with Intelligent Networking is a significant milestone in our Next Generation Solution strategy and demonstrates how Colt is combining its European network with its Next Generation technology to position Colt as the European partner of choice for carriers and service providers worldwide“, said Alireza Mahmoodshahi, Chief Technology Officer at Colt. “We continue to add services to our next generation Multi Service Platform, putting us in a market leading position by offering enhanced services based on future-proof technology”.
Colt Carrier VoIP supports both market-relevant Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and H.323 protocols. Transparent calling line identification (CLI) transmission, fax pass through, network resilience and security are delivered as a standard with the service.
IN services provides callers with an improved user experience whilst maximising the performance of the customer’s call centre. Colt’s IN services include freephone, shared cost, premium rate, geographic number (IN GEO), personal number and feature rich call routing and delivery services. IN is available in each of Colt’s 13 European countries and thanks to Carrier VoIP, is now able to deliver integrated voice services everywhere in the world*.
Connecting via VoIP brings customers a number of operational advantages and simplifies the establishment of VoIP interconnects. François Eloy, Managing Director Wholesale at Colt says: “The enhanced Colt Carrier VoIP service enables Colt to connect its customers easily and cost-effectively and creates future-proof solutions with VoIP interconnects in any of our 13 countries to support national and international call termination and IN services delivery.”
For any traffic sent by customers and terminated on a Colt network, customers can select from various individuals levels of service and quality. In addition, the new service offers the daily delivery of unrated Call Detail Records (CDRs), via a fully automated B2B interface. This provides an additional level of flexibility to service providers who do not want to invest in complex and costly billing systems.
