In a challenging voice market, carriers need to take every opportunity to maximise the potential of every minute on their networks. As Origin Based Rating (OBR) is implemented in more countries, carriers are looking for a solution that quickly enables them to take control of their traffic and give them predictable margins. OBR has the potential to impact a carriers bottom line and cause costly disputes. Global number intelligence can be a way to reduce risk and enable carriers to accept or reject traffic with precise routing decisions.
OBR has the potential to impact the business of any carrier that terminates international voice traffic. With OBR deployments continuing to grow in markets across the globe, it’s important that carriers understand the risks and take the necessary steps to reduce the impact on their business today.
The carriers that take action now to reduce their exposure to OBR surcharges and penalties will gain a competitive advantage and ensure the long-term sustainability of their businesses. They will have more resources to reinvest in their businesses and overall, they’ll be prepared for a future where OBR is common across different geographies.
