Savings from leveraging your WAN to avoid PSTN toll charges is a key component of any VoIP network investment strategy. Assuring those savings are realized and being able to quantify those savings are not passing requests from senior management. They are demands. Are you ready?
QUANTIFY REALIZED SAVINGS
Traffic Analyst lets you see your realized savings. How? First, charts and reports clearly show the number of calls and associated savings for calls that are now traversing your WAN for site-to-site traffic instead of incurring long distance and international charges (metered or flat fee). Second, view “tail end hop off” (TEHO) calls and savings. See the volume of traffic that instead of incurring long distance and international charges on the PSTN are now being routed over your WAN and “hopping” off at a remote gateway and being rated as local calls.
find UnREALIZED SAVINGS
Traffic Analyst doesn’t stop there. See reports on existing PSTN traffic that could be routed over your WAN and drill into the specific CDRs to determine what call routing schemes may be modified or which employees are using incorrect dialing methods. For example, the chart below shows the economic value of calls by destination country by week that went over the PSTN but that could have gone over the WAN, both internal and TEHO.
You may then click on a column to drill down to view the originating locations for the calls as shown on the next chart. Note the high value of calls originating in the Village location destined for Mexico, where connected gateways may exist that could carry this traffic. Clicking on the column drills into the specific call records.
