The Sawtel Hosted Consumer Broadband Telephony™ services are turnkey, software-based solutions designed for leveraging 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. Service is deployed using either prepaid or postpaid billing mechanisms to flexibly match client business needs and qualifiers. The solutions 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 revenue-generating 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. Behind the scenes, the Sawtel Broadb and Telephony™ solution also meets stringent regulatory requirements with CALEA-compliant call intercept functions and 911 emergency integration.

The Sawtel Hosted Consumer Broadband Telephony™ solutions offer clients 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' 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 "*" 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 portal 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.

  • A Complete Broadband Telephony Solution

    Sawtel provides an all-in-one solution for deploying revenue-saving broadband IP telephony services. Traditional enhanced services can also complement "line-side" services to provide a common software platform, streamlining the effort associated with bundling and deploying multiple services. Sawtel Hosted services can be tailored to meet specific needs with new or customized features using the Service Creation Environment (SCE).
