The GSMA has awarded eServGlobal Limited (LSE: ESG & ASX: ESV), certification for meeting the technical requirements of the Pathfinder Program, the GSMA’s Carrier ENUM Service.
Representing the interests of the worldwide communications industry, the GSMA created Pathfinder, a global number translation service, to allow operators, carriers and hubs more cost-efficient routing of international calls, SMS and multi-media messages using a combination of TDM and SIP networks. The GSMA also set up the Pathfinder Industry Partner Program aimed at promoting interoperability of session-based communications and technologies, including VoIP peering, SIP and ENUM, Messaging and Presence Services as well as interconnection of fixed and mobile networks.
A particular aspect of the Pathfinder service is the Number Portability (NP) Discovery service which enables operators to identify the correct destination Service Provider Network (SPN) for relevant traffic corridors. Visibility regarding the destination SPN enables the inquiring network to be more intelligent about route optimization, traffic bundling, service delivery, quality of service, billing and reconciliation. This enhanced destination knowledge further helps manage the voice traffic bundles and termination rates in commercial agreements and reduces missed message delivery.
This fits in well with eServGlobal’s own Local Number Portability offering, which permits an operator to test each call for NP on a real time basis. Checking national numbers is done using a copy of the local NP database. Used in conjunction with the GSMA’s PathFinder NP Discovery Service, operators can check international destinations as well, to ensure that they are correctly routed without incurring further costs.
