MOST Routing Manager

Prime Carrier > Solutions > MOST Routing Manager

MOST Routing Manager contains a set of advanced routing algorithms that take account of the various inputs and business rules required to generate optimum routing plans for the network. The routing plan analysis and generation takes account of wide variety of factors including:

  • Physical network topology
  • Quality at the destination level
  • Cost
  • Bilateral arrangements
  • A broad range of user defined business rules / constraints including forced routing etc.

MOST Routing Manager offers multiple levels of routing sophistication from basic Least Cost Routing to complex predictive routing based on optimizing the achieved margin across the whole network whilst  account potential future scenarios.

The routing optimization is determined by specialist algorithmic techniques that support multiple routing scenarios, grouped into basic and advanced routing:

Basic Routing Plan generation

  • LCR – Simple Least Cost Routing
  • LCR with Quality will generate service adjusted routing plans that offers the best quality route for the lowest cost, a differentiating factor for many carriers

Advanced Routing Plan generation

  • LCR with Quality and Capacity also includes business rules and the reported volume limits on a carrier’s switch into the routing plans
  • LCR with Quality and Capacity & Bi-Laterals agreements to cater for any bilateral agreements or arrangements in place with other carriers, that needs to be reflected in the routing plan.
  • Optimized routing takes all traffic factors in account across either part of or the full network to find the minimum cost of routing for all the required traffic across the selected part of the network.

Benefits delivered by MOST Routing Manager product include:

Reduced Risk in Routing Plans
MOST Routing Manager automates the generation of the Routing plan, so that the number of available options within a network needed to be considered when delivering an optimum routing plan can exceed what is manually possible and is without introducing human error into the process

Ability to respond to change faster
As businesses need to re-engineer themselves to within a more dynamic, competitive marketplace, the ability to generate a Routing plan easily and quickly gives the carrier a business advantage

Graphic representation of Routing choices
MOST Routing Manager graphical displays the generated Routing options for each destination. It shows where Inter-carrier agreements have influenced a routing option, where a routing is forced and where Quality of Service levels have either been meet or have not been achieved. This ensures that the user can see, understand and exercise control within their network, so reducing the risk of errors and mistakes

Reduced routing overflow and improved cost predictability
Optimizing Routing Algorithms allows for the allocation of traffic at optimal cost within current network constraints. Through software modeling the traffic flows across the network, in advance of routing implementation, MOST Routing Manager can predict where constraints will cause overflow and therefore unexpected additional cost.

Routing generated at the lowest granular level
By operating at the most granular level within the Dial Codes offered by the carrier’s suppliers, all possible routes are supported and included in the generation of the Routing plan.

Levels of Routing sophistication
By offering a number of different routing algorithms the carrier can select which level is most appropriate to their business requirements. An organization can change the level of routing sophistication as their business drivers require giving a level of upgrade flexibility.

Routing can be optimized to support different business models
MOST Routing Manager is able to include a number of business factors that will enable the carrier to optimize the routing for different business models, including Least Cost, Best Quality, Maximum Network Utilization, Best Cost.

All Parameters can be included in the Routing optimization process:

  • Network Infrastructure – Switches (hard or soft), routers, SBCs
  • Phyiscal connections between switches, each with associated capacity limits, quality ratings, and costs
  • Traffic requirements, each identifying node of origin, node of destination, volume, and quality requirement
  • A set of offers from supplier carriers for the different traffic requirements
