When selecting your hosted softswitch and billing provider, some important decisions come into play. Does your provider charge per seat? Per concurrent call? Or per minute?
This means your provider charges you per end user, similar to how software licensing is often sold. Imagine that this “seat” is for an employee sitting at their desk, with a phone, and is a user on the PBX you provide to your customer. If your softswitch provider charges you per seat, be skeptical, because not all “seats” are created equal. Some users may generate many highly-profitable international calls, while other users generate very little billable traffic (and no profits) for your business. How many “seats” are empty during vacation season — or when unexpected conditions arise? Per seat billing can be a burden to your business because you are paying for users, whether they generate profits or not.
Per Concurrent Calls?
Concurrent calling is another way a softswitch provider might charge you, where you pay based on a pre-defined number of simultaneous callers at any given time. Since the number is pre-defined, during off-peak hours or slow seasons, you still pay for the same number of concurrent calls, even if you do not use them. Conversely, if your traffic spikes, your provider may limit your customers ability to make calls and block your traffic. This can anger your customers, and limit your opportunity for growth.Request Info »
