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.

V1 VoIP Reselling 101: DID Phone Numbers

You do not have to be a VoIP expert to become a V1 VoIP reseller. And for those who are not, we recommend you get your toe wet with DIDs. In simple terms DIDs are your phone numbers. So when you call someone with a seven digit number, that’s the DID.

DID stands for Direct Inbound Dialing and when it comes to VoIP, it is routed to your VoIP phone through a PBX or gateway. So how can you make money by reselling these DIDs? Well, what’s the first question any person switching phone providers asks: Can I keep my phone number? If they don’t want to keep it, or they want to add to it, that’s a DID. Want to offer calling cards to international travelers? You need DIDs. Have a friend moving to a new state and they need a local number? That’s a DID. Someone you know starting a business? They need DIDs!

One of the reasons V1 VoIP is able to supply DIDs at such a low cost rate is because we are a Turn-Key VoIP Business Solution provider. If you purchase a turn-key system, we can also enable the DIDs per calling area. For example, one supplier can supply over 10,000 different DIDs and we can facilitate the others for you. With this type of pricing, you can give yourself more freedom in your business model…

V1 VoIP has the DIDs and the solutions for you to launch your own reseller business. We are the largest holder of DIDs in North America and offer DID numbers globally at extremely low rates. For more information about getting phone numbers in the US and Canada, and sending traffic from the DIDs to your Gateway, contact V1 VoIP today. In addition, if you want more information about the turn-key calling card business, VoIP Business, or termination- please contact us!

What type of Phone System is right for me

You don’t need to know the technical details of phone systems to choose the right one for your organization. Searching for phone systems is often confusing for first time buyers. With all the acronyms, technical jargon, and academic debates, it’s hard to get a clear answer to the question that’s inevitably on your mind. What business phone system is right for me?

Copper Wire Phone Systems

What is it?
Copper wire or “landline” phone systems are still a popular choice for many businesses.

Advantages:
Copper wire systems offer features that they originally popularized, such as caller ID, call forwarding, call blocking, call hold, conferencing, voicemail, and international calling. Copper wire phone systems are more reliable than hosted and on-premise solutions. Phone lines stay up longer and fail less than Internet connections.

Disadvantages:
Copper wire phone systems do not suffer from a lack of basic features, but they are limited in terms of advanced abilities. While many hosted phone systems offer integrations with some of the leading third party platforms, copper wire phone systems might not even allow you to send your voicemail to your email. The costs of copper wire phone systems are generally (1) more expensive than hosted in upfront expenditure and (2) more costly on a monthly basis than on-premise options. Landline phone systems require you to purchase hardware, lines, and other infrastructure upfront. Like on-premise solutions, a copper wire phone system will require maintenance and upkeep by either IT employees or phone company staff.

Hosted Phone Systems

What is it?
Hosted phone systems do not require storing hardware on your property. Instead, the servers that power your phone system are “hosted” by the service provider at off site locations. The only hardware you have on site are the phones themselves.

Advantages:
For the average small to medium sized business, a hosted phone system is the answer for those who lack the technical know-how or resources to run advanced phone servers. Customer support is built into the service itself. Hosted phone systems require less money to get started. You don’t have to purchase any expensive hardware upfront. This lack of upfront expenditure saves small businesses thousands of dollars in startup fees.

On-Premise Phone Systems

What is it?
When the entire phone system is on the premises of your business, hence the name.

Advantages:
An on-premise phone system can cost less over time. The cost to entry for on-premise phone systems is higher than other services, because you have to actually buy the servers that power the phones. However, the monthly phone bill for an on-premise system can cost less than other options on the market. Over time, you’ll probably end up saving money, as the cheaper monthly costs will ultimately underwrite the initial expenditure on the hardware. Another advantage of on-premise phone systems is the ability to customize the service.

Disadvantages:
You are essentially on your own when it comes to maintenance and repair. It’s something to keep in mind that the servers themselves will need maintenance and repair work, which drains money and manpower.

If you still have questions about which type of phone system might be right for you, contact V1 VoIP today or sign up now. We are happy to put you in touch with a reseller in your area.
