A large number of Carriers are suffering lost revenue and margin through not being able to analysis actual traffic cost information in a timely manner. Traffic costs may be higher than predicted or forecast due to routing overflow to carriers at higher rates, where Switch plans have not have been fully or correctly implemented to the switch, so traffic is being routed to destinations with carriers at higher rates, or where a low Quality of Service has forced a manual change in the routing plan to a carrier who provides a high quality but at a higher rate.
