SLiMtel are an independent carrier and service provider. It provides telecoms, internet connectivity, mobile and numbering services, as well as managed call termination to the global carrier community.
SLiMtel were asked to provide UK termination capabilities for 100 simultaneous calls for a client in Afghanistan. Each call (without VOIPBOX) required 48kbps in bandwidth to ensure no degradation in quality using G.729, and with bandwidth costing around per 1Mbps per month the cost to provide the bandwidth alone came to around per month.
Installed an appliance at each end of the link, loaded with 100 call licence. This enabled the delivery of 100 simultaneous G.729 calls using only 1Mbps of bandwidth, reducing the cost of the required connection by a staggering per month.
VOIPBOX ensures that 100 simultaneous G.729 calls are delivered using only 1Mbps of bandwidth without any compromise in terms of quality. In fact its unique method of QoS is so granular that jitter and latency are reduced even when using satellite connections.
In addition VOIPBOX delivers multiple failover capabilities and supports; Bonding, Encryption, Real Time Stats on the underlying link in use, and delivers significant network load reduction.
“Satellite bandwidth is the only reliable way in and out of the territory and bandwidth is expensive,” comments Kashaf Bashir, SLiMtel Managing Director. “This is a solution that exceeded our customer’s requirements with a ROI measured in days.”
