Ugh. I haven’t done a good job in describing how speed plays a central role, not only in our application but, as we believe it to be, central to the industry as well. Speed, as we define it, is “the ability to respond to the marketplace as required to stop problems, exploit opportunities, and function optimally”.  The word, “optimally”  is admittedly a little bit ambiguous, so let me clarify. Operating optimally in interconnect voice, we define as the efficiency and effectiveness of a carrier’s operations to address the needs of their business without violating their expected performance outcomes on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.   

Every carrier has different operating expectations based on, where they sit in the market (are they an arbitrage player?), their size (are they Tier 1, or Tier 2 or Tier 3), and their objectives for the business (primary, secondary, tertiary). Speed plays a role in all of these, but it’s importance correlates the carrier’s perspective on interconnect voice and their strategic, tactical and, operational goals.  

Here at GCS, we have designed our solution in a way where speed is at the kernel of our software, along with scale and reliability. Our ICP platform is centered around speed, scale, and reliability.

That’s why I talk so much about speed. It’s central to us.

Until next time,
