PacWest's Telastic border control service surpasses 1 billion minute mark

PacWest Telecomm's Telastic on-demand border controller service has already become a hit with its service provider customers since it was launched last September with over a billion minutes rated and routed as of the end of 2010.

The on-demand service set includes three primary pieces: Telastic Infrastructure, Telastic Application Capacity, and Telastic Turnkey VoIP Applications.

A key component of the service is the Telastic Border Controller technology, which provides on-demand border control, including VoIP security with network address translation capability, firewall traversal, and interworking. In addition, the Telastic Border Controller includes a number of managerial features including least-cost rating and routing engine, VoIP peering, numbers management, billing, traffic analysis and reporting, revenue protection, fraud detection, and traffic management.

Serving a host of competitive and even incumbent service providers, the Telastic offering builds on Pac West's well known core telephony services such as local origination, phone numbers and termination.

While wireline and wireless providers will continue to build out their own respective network facilities, PacWest's Telastic border control service could help carriers avoid incurring the cost of deploying more SBCs, but also allow them to quickly launch new white label hosted PBX and residential VoIP offerings.
