ASG Communications and CenturyLink™ (formerly Qwest Communications)
Have found a Routing Solution for Central Station Operators
How are you managing carrier routing changes?
Telecommunication Carriers have previously announced that they have migrated switched toll free long distance traffic to their VoIP platforms for cost purposes along with utilizing LCR (Least Call Routing) services. However, this is a huge issue for the alarm industry since the VoIP re-routing and LCR has caused major complications when used to connect the alarm panel to the central station receiver.
ASG Communications has partnered with CenturyLink in developing a solution where a dealer's toll free number will point to a dedicated circuit that is connected directly to a CenturyLink Long Distance switch (Through support from the Central Station). This method creates the direct connection between an alarm panel to a receiver which eliminates the risks of a carrier's VoIP platform re-routing the circuit and causing dropped or incorrect alarm connections. (This prevents potentially large liabilities with the end user.)
ASG Communications will provide you access to the aggressive dedicated Toll Free rates that have been negotiated with CenturyLink.
