V1 VoIP Carrier Class 4 Softswitch

V1 VoIP carries a class 4 switch for resellers to interconnect local exchange carrier for long distance calls

The V1 VoIP Class 4 Softswitch

For VoIP providers, a Class 4 Softswitch can replicate what a class 4 switch does for land line telephone calls. V1 VoIP carries a high performance Class 4 Softswitch for resellers. Our Class 4 Softswitch secures the delivery of VoIP traffic or services over multiple IP networks and includes full component redundancy.

What is a Class 4 Switch?

A class 4 switch is a device used to interconnect local exchange carrier offices for long distance calls. More commonly known as a tandem telephone switch, it connects class 5 switches to a larger network. It is a telephone central office switch used to connect the end offices of telephone service networks together. Class 4 switches can only deal with high-speed digital four-wire connections.

Types of Class 4 Switches

There are two types of connection for a class 4 switch. One is called a sector, or local tandem which is used to interconnect to the traffic between class 5 switches within a local access and transport area (LATA). For example, a call is placed from Seattle to Boston. The calls travels through the class 5 switches and find out that it cannot access the Boston phone number through that network. It then connects to a class 4 switch which allows it to connect to another class 4 switch in Boston. It then again connects to a class 5 switch in the local area the phone number is located to complete the call.

The other type of class 4 switch is called an access tandem switch. This is when a class 4 switch connects to a long-distance telephone company, also known as an Interexchange carrier (IXCs). Much like a local tandem, the same process is repeated but the call travels overseas through the point of presence (PoP) provided by an IXC. It then gains access to the class 4 switches in other countries and can interconnect to the one it needs to reach.

Benefits of the V1 VoIP Class 4 Softswitch:
1. Intelligent Call Routing – Uses sophisticated algorithms to reduce cost, latency, congestion, and improve the overall quality of VoIP calls
2. Easy to use User Interface – Provides a simple user interface for local or remote control management of maintenance, configuration, monitoring resources, software updates, firewall management, etc. Choose between a web based GUI or a command line interface

Five more Awesome V1 VoIP Webphone Features

Did you read our previous post about amazing webphone features After you hit that up, we have five more amazing features that help businesses with their calling needs that webphones provide.

1. Call Transfering
A business-grade webphone can transfer a call to another extension, a ring group, or an outside line.

2. Three-Way Conferencing
Want to have a third person join the phone call? Not all webphones can do three way conferencing, which differs from a conference bridge or conference suite. 3-way conferencing is the ability to invite multiple callers to engage in a call with a single user, whereas a conference bridge is a separate extension that all callers dial in to join the call.

3. DTMF (Dialpad)
The dialpad is an important feature when dealing with phone menus or entering conference PINs. Many webphones feature a dialpad as the main interface for initiating calls, but others do away with it in favor of a more ‘modern’ look.

4. Video Calling
Do you love facetime? Then you will love the video calling feature which allows employees working remotely or in different offices to see each other in person using their computer’s webcam. A webphone app allows users to enable or disable their video feed at any time during the call and distinguish between these two types of calls in the user interface, and

5. Volume Control & Mute
When you are a mobile worker on the road, you can’t guarantee the background of your location. This is why volume control and mute functions are must-haves. When your background gets loud this feature allows you to stop sending your audio feed to the other callers on the line.

Webphone features don’t end here. These devices offer a wealth of features that can aid businesses in their day-to-day business dealings and make an office run more functionally as a result. To learn more about webphones and which one might be right for your company, contact V1 VoIP or sign up now today.
