The Class 5 softswitch can deliver service to end users in a multitude of ways. The most direct method is to use IP phones or phones using IP adapters that connect directly with the softswitch. End users can also access VoIP services from a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet using a mobile dialer (or softphone). In effect, mobile dialer apps function as IP adapters for mobile devices, allowing these devices to interact with a Class 5 softswitch.
Class 5 Softswitches can also provide service to non-IP devices such as regular phones and cellphones. Examples of such service are PINless and Calling Card services. While IP phones connect directly to the softswitch and communicate with it through IP, the aforementioned solutions allow end users to dial into a local Class 5 softswitch, which can then provide them with VoIP services.
The V1 VoIP Class 5 switch primarily deals with subscription type telephone services and route calls through local areas. The V1 Class 5 softswitch allows residential VoIP service providers the ability to offer a wide variety of IP phone services to their customers. It is a complete solution that includes call routing, billing, DID assignment, auto-provisioning, e-commerce, and invoicing, all in one easy-to-use package. V1 VoIP also offers a Class 4 softswitch.
