The Sawtel Business Broadband Telephony™ service is a turnkey, software-based solution designed for deploying primary and secondary line voice services over existing broadband networks. Subscribers can make IP-originated calls to other IP phones, or to the public switched telephone network (PSTN), and receive calls through a PSTN-provisioned phone number. Sawtel can deploy the service using either prepaid or postpaid billing mechanisms to flexibly match consumers and business models. The solution contains all the components necessary for service delivery, including an application (feature) server, session border controller, real-time transport protocol (RTP) relay mechanism, and integration with a rich set of money-saving enhanced services. Key line-side features supported include: caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, anonymous call blocking, and voice mail. Subscribers can access and control any of these features through traditional dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) interfaces or via an easy-to-use, self-service Web portal.

The Sawtel Business Broadband Telephony™ solution offers a number of important advantages:

  • Delivers Key Line-Side Calling Features

    To provide subscribers with an experience similar to legacy PSTN-based phone services, Sawtel’s Business Broadband Telephony™ supports many line-side features, including caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, anonymous call blocking, and voice mail. These represent some of the highest use features available to the subscriber through star (*) codes on PSTN phones.

  • Feature-rich Voice Mail & Unified Messaging Services - Message Access, Retrieval, and Notification

    Subscribers enjoy full control over the service via both Web interface and IVR menus. This includes comprehensive message playback and control operations that allow subscribers to skip through audio for fast message review. Subscribers can set up email notification when a new voice message arrives. This offers the flexibility to receive notifications on mobile phones when subscribers are away from their office or home.

    Sawtel Broadband Telephony™ supports IP-to-IP, IP-to-PSTN, and PSTN-to-IP voice calls. Clients can leverage existing broadband Internet connections.
