As demands for Voice Over IP services and video chat continue to spike due to their increased functionality and lowered cost, many providers are under pressure to deliver the same level of excellence, consistency and ease that traditional phone networks can provide. The VOIP and video chat trend is not looking to subside anytime soon either as Ovum Research predicts consumer use of VOIP will reach 1.7 trillion minutes by 2018.

So what does this mean for the companies in a fast-growing, global VOIP ecosystem?

Leading telecommunications provider 373K has partnered with Internap to stand out amongst the VOIP world and stay ahead of the industry. 373K is a wholesale provider of telecommunication services, catering to a wide variety of service providers – from mobile over-the-top (OTT) application suppliers and mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) to independent telephone and cable companies who need integrated voice applications.

Due to high demand from voice customers, 373K needed a way to power its voice infrastructure and global carrier operations to deliver uninterrupted, high-quality telephony and other media services to its global users. Leveraging Internap’s AgileSERVER bare-metal Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and route-optimized Performance IP connectivity, 373K has built a global platform that is relied upon by millions of end users daily.

373K’s BR-549 platform, which maintains robust connectivity with the world’s top carriers, empowers it to handle millions of global calls every day. Internap’s AgileSERVER bare-metal IaaS combines dedicated processing power and high throughput levels with the on-demand agility and scale of virtualized public cloud and monthly, hourly and per-second billing options.

Another exclusive feature of 373K’s BR-549 switching platform is the ability to monitor and match changing capacity needs via calls to Internap’s OpenStack API, which invokes the open cloud standard’s Heat orchestration and Glance image management capabilities.

With Internap’s Performance IP connectivity that uses patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer (MIRO) technology to identify and route around network outages, packet loss, jitter and latency, 373K voice traffic ensures to deliver the fastest, most reliable and consistent route to its destination every time.
