Our Origination Footprint is Bigger and Size Matters

Is your provider’s footprint just not big enough?

If you are a wholesale, private label or reseller customer looking for a phone number, look no further than Call 48. A VoIP carrier footprint by definition means the area where Call 48 has access to sell our own DID phone numbers. We have taken the time and spent the money and resources to offer complete coverage of the United States from over 13,000 rate centers, more than 180 LATAs, plus nearly 120 other countries.

This means your provider doesn’t own or have enough access to sell different phone numbers from around the country. And when this happens, they have to source the phone numbers you have requested and need from other providers and resell them. Many will not do this because it takes time, which is a waste to them and it isn’t affordable, so they won’t spend the money.

Call 48 has taken the time and spent the money so you don’t have to.

Call 48 is a premier CPAAS provider offering the United States as our On-Net footprint. On-Net means we have done the expensive and heavy-lifting work for you. This is our infrastructure and our phone numbers.

With Call 48, you gain access from rate centers where we are registered with NPAC (the Number Portability Administration Center) and where we have infrastructure and tandem circuitry to receive calls in and out of those networks. Not only has Call 48 incurred the costs to do this, we also have multiple regulatory filings and approvals as well as state filings. 

Who benefits from a complete VoIP footprint?

If you do telecom business beyond a generalized, geographical area, you need a VoIP company like Call 48 which provides a complete VoIP footprint. If you only need numbers in the Chicago area, then you only need Chicago phone numbers. As soon as you need them outside, you are going to need to increase that footprint.  

At Call 48 we strive to ensure the size of our VoIP footprint are continue to expand it. It is our goal to never have a customer not have access to the phone numbers that they need. Contact us today to find out if we have yours waiting for you.

Call 48 Fights Against Capacity Constraints

With the trend of the VoIP industry being providers consolidating their services to fewer carriers, one of the biggest side effects is running into capacity constraints. Call 48 has found the solution to this problem.

For years the industry norm was price compression. But the trend has reversed in many instances with prices going up instead of down. A cause of this shift is because of the additional regulatory oversight overhead for expense purposes along with just shared capacity to pass calls.

So what is capacity constraint? As an example, take LATA 460. If you have 10,000 channels available in that LATA. If you utilize all of them or utilize the calls per second (CPS) capacity, that is a capacity constraint as you are now out of room to make calls. Think of peak usage time when everyone makes phone calls at the same time, you will not have the ability to pass those calls and they will start shedding or failing.

And Call 48 covers more than 180 LATAs.

The Call 48 Capacity Constraint Solution

Call 48 never wants your call to fail. Call 48 is solving the capacity constraint problem by working on additional peering relationships with other vendors which have the footprint where we need additional capacity. Combine this with working with our upstream carriers and underlying carriers, we are continually expanding our capacity.

With one of the largest footprints in the United States, covering more than 175 LATAs and 13,000 rate centers, wholesale, resellers and private label customers come to us to cover a large portion if not all of the country. With a footprint so deep and wide, Call 48 has developed the tools to monitor and track capacity in real time.

VoIP Industry Trend is Consolidation of Carrier Services

In today’s telecom industry there is a tremendous amount of regulatory trends. With the implementation of the FCC’s stir shaken compliance, they are cracking down on spam calls, robo calls, and fraudulent calls. The root of this compliance is origination and termination services needing to be handled by the same carrier. And Call 48 has risen to the challenge.

There is consolidation as a result of this trend. Providers are wanting to do more services with less vendors. As opposed to having to go to up to a dozen different carriers for their needs, they are bringing their business to Call 48 to certify their calls. This way the providers know and trust us and we know and trust them.

What makes us attractive is the size of our origination footprint. With complete coverage of the United States from over 180 LATAs and 13,000 rate centers, providers know we have the DIDs, toll free and origination they need, making the termination easy.

When you have a network and footprint like Call 48 at your disposal, you can spend more than 90% of the country on net with us. Then we cover the rest of the country via an off net addition to our network.

The benefit to moving origination service to Call 48 is doing business with a massive network that’s highly redundant, secure, and stable along with a large suite of products. Add to that our competitive if not industry leading pricing and you have the place where you can complete all your carrier service needs.

LATA stands for Local Access and Transport Area, and refers to the geographical area of the United States assigned to telecommunications companies. Rather than drawn around states or area code designations, LATA boundaries are drawn by markets.

Within each LATA are rate centers, which can encompass multiple area codes. They determine the boundaries for local calling, billing and assigning phone numbers. Some LATAs cross over state boundaries and others exist in multiple area codes. Typically a call within a rate center is local, while a call from one rate center to another may be considered a long-distance call. Although city names can often match rate center names, cities and rate centers are not a one-to-one match.

You may find LATAs valuable when purchasing DIDs from the Call 48 CPaaS enabled customer platform VoIP Portal. You can place an order utilizing LATA, which narrows your search to boundaries of that geographical area.

Call 48 Covers Over 180 LATAs So What is a LATA

At Call 48 we are proud to offer complete coverage of the 48 contiguous United States so much we put it in our name. We offer this coverage by utilizing more than 180 different LATAs across the country. So what is a LATA? Let us explain.

LATA stands for Local Access and Transport Area. This U.S. telecommunications term  refers to geographical boundaries of local telephone service networks. LATA boundaries are drawn by the federal government and determine which phone companies can provide local and toll service for each area.

Initially, LATAs were grouped into regions where one particular Regional Bell Operating Company (RBOCs) provided services. LATAs in every such region are numbered beginning with common digits. The Modification of Final Judgment for the District of Columbia in 1982 divided the United States into 245 LATAs, each of which was designed to hold around 1 million subscribers. A LATA is an area in which one of these divested AT&T companies is allowed to provide telecommunications services.

Connections between telephone companies within the same region are called intra-LATA connnections, while connections between two local exchange carriers in different regions are called inter-LATA connections, you might find them similar to long-distance services.

LATAs become valuable when ordering DIDs through the Call 48 CPaaS enabled VoIP Portal customer platform. By utilizing LATA information, you can narrow your search to boundaries of the geographical area you need. LATAs also come into play when viewing your bill or call detail records. You can sort your calls by LATA to determine where the call originated.

Call 48 Has DIDs from 13,000 Rate Centers

Call 48 has solved the problem of not getting the DIDs you need from one provider. While most carriers are regionalized, covering about 5,000 rate centers, Call 48 covers over 13,000 rate centers and more than 180 LATAs.

The days of having multiple small aggregators isn’t practical or needed any longer. What you want now is the provider with the largest footprint, reliable network, and best pricing and availability. Call 48 makes it easy to  route all your traffic over minimal trunks so you can keep them secure and keep them protected. No longer do you have to manage channels or concurrent calls over many different providers. By buying your origination from Call 48 you know what your true utilization is. And you get the best pricing because you’ve aggregated it all through one provider.

When a provider doesn’t have the phone number you need it’s because they are either out of inventory or simply don’t have that footprint. In the case that they don’t have the inventory, you have to put in a special request, then wait 2-3 weeks while they attempt to fulfill it. If they don’t have the footprint, it means they don’t even have the ability to offer the phone number to you. In this case, they have to try to get it from someone else, which will cost them more money and in the end will cost you more money.

In both of these scenarios, you are waiting. And time is money. So you either need to start shopping for another provider to get you the DID you need and you have wasted your time. Not to mention your customer’s…

Call 48 has made it easy for wholesale and reseller customers to get the phone numbers that they need. With our CPaaS enabled customer platform, VoIP Portal, customers can use this fourth generation interface to purchase and provision DIDs from all over the United States in real time.
