Telepoint Global Hosting Services today launched the Neptune Voice Services Platform, an efficient and scalable cloud-based platform for VoIP service providers and resellers enabling them to buy and sell minutes globally without any hardware infrastructure investment.
Telecommunication providers are struggling to compete in a highly competitive marketplace for minutes as large carriers expand their presence into emerging markets. Maintaining servers and billing software and managing a full-time network operations center can quickly erase any profits.
“For the first time, Telepoint Global Hosting is making its proven wholesale voice platform available to any small and mid-size company for fractions of what these operations would typically cost,” said Telepoint Global Hosting Services Partner and CTO Russ Bierschbach. “In addition to allowing more companies to compete, the Neptune Platform offers real-time reporting and monitoring, includes capabilities to increase responsiveness to market demands and, ultimately, allows service providers to maximize profits and minimize losses.”
The Neptune Voice Services Platform has more options for managing profitability than any other platform on the market. From a simple, Web dashboard and interface, Neptune allows VoIP service providers to manage calls, subscriptions and customers, as well as business metrics, not just performance metrics. The service is built for carrier-class reliability and it is securely managed at physically redundant sites with additional equipment redundancy built in at each site.
Key features of Neptune (http://www.telepointglobal.com/wholesale-voice) are:
- Real-Time Reporting and Monitoring – Based on network and business rules, delivers real-time knowledge on profitability and quality by customer, vendor, country and region, enabling up-to-date business and routing decisions.
- Dynamic Routing – Provides a powerful and customizable quality-of-service routing selection system that enables fewer people to manage large and complicated networks, saving time and reducing costly routing mistakes.
- Network Visualization – Provides multiple dashboards, each with their own key perspective, to help you visualize your network and provide insight where traffic levels, profitability, and quality of service metrics are changing.
- Customer Rate Management – Provides a rate calculation system, enabling users to view all their vendors, filter by quality-of-service settings and visualize routing and rates.
- Vendor Rate Management – Imports multiple formats of vendor rate sheets and validates and analyzes against contractual rules, providing a report of changes and allowing overrides.
- Invoicing and Reconciliation – Able to generate invoices automatically and send them directly to customers, as well as provide a reconciliation system to ensure customer and vendor invoices match.
Telepoint Global Hosting provides Neptune users their first 100 ports for free for 90 days and each subsequent port is US$6.00. A license to the platform also includes hosting, power, servers, switches, equipment and 24x7 support to manage the operations.
The Neptune Voice Services Platform is built on next-generation switching architecture with access points in Dublin, Ireland that supports 98 percent of the world’s codecs and has the capacity to support more than one billion minutes worldwide. The Neptune Platform was built by architects with more than 25 years of experience in the softswitch, prepaid and wholesale voice markets.
To debut and demo Neptune, Telepoint Global Hosting will exhibit at PTC ’14 in Honolulu on January 20-22, 2014. The company will be located at booth #7. The booth contact is Chris Pappas, who can be reached at 1-512-431-9182 or [email protected].

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impac...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of present...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focu...

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In his session at DevOps Summit, Otis Gospodnetić, co-author of Lucene in Action and founder...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
