GCS is in the business of interconnect voice. We live and breathe this stuff all day, every day (exciting lives we lead, right?). So, rate management/administration is an important part of interconnect voice operations.
Ooh. Okay. This is an interesting topic for me. I have seen repeated instances of it and it kind of makes me scratch my head. The idea behind this is that a carrier that is proficient in interconnect voice offers to perform some, most, or even all of the interconnect voice operations for a carrier and charge them just a “small” per minute or per month management fee.
Nice question. Well, we get lots of carriers asking us lots of questions about specific features that we have, don’t have, or are planning to have. Some are really great questions. Some questions, let’s just say, they are, in a word, “wacky”.
You guys ask such good questions! So, here at GCS, we think it does or could with minor adjustments, but we haven’t yet found a carrier who wanted to engage with us to explore that fully. SMS shares a lot of similarities to voice.
You know, this is a great question and one that we answer based on both quantitative and qualitative planes. See, quality at the interconnect voice level, is a little different than quality at the subscriber level.
