VoIP providers can directly control DIDs, handle porting, gain access to local number pooling, and register to 911 if the provider is an Interconnected Carrier – either by their own infrastructure, or through interconnection agreements, and show proof that they can and will conform to the FCC Numbering Database guidelines for managing the DIDs they possess. However, the underlying requirements and procedural changes can be daunting and out of reach for most businesses without significant financial investment.
Peerless Network (http://www.peerlessnetwork.com) has a simplified method for VoIP and Wireless Carriers to scale their businesses through new revenue channels, reduced overhead, and enhanced control of their most important asset – numbers. This solution is called VoIP Evolution.
VoIP Evolution is a process by which providers can transition from a reseller to becoming an FCC-approved Interconnected VOIP Provider (IVP), establish wholesale interconnect agreements to gain access to the PSTN, and gain access to their own numbering resources for local and toll-free numbers.
