March 2, 2010 Arbinet introduced its new Premium Mobile Routing Table which provides CLI guarantees. This is a strategic move for the company, one they’ve been looking to make with the right person on board. In January, the company tapped Brian Troesch to head up Product. Brian’s experience in developing and implementing premium mobile routing has been touted – his legacy is currently living on at Belgacom ICS.
The Premium Mobile Routing Table is available for use by Arbinet Carrier Service (ACS) customers. There are a number of different levels of service available on ACS, Premium Mobile is the highest quality routing table, designed for both fixed and mobile operators whose retail customers require advanced features and need the highest quality voice termination available.
Another new feature with this announcement is ACS’s new Customer Based Routingsm option. This provides customers the ability to select different grades of service for each destination on a route-by-route basis over a single trunk group. This is flexibility at its best for global voice termination solutions. Most wholesale carriers know where the bulk of their traffic is going and which routes they need to improve upon. ACS Customer Based Routing offers the absolute flexibility that small, medium and large carriers require.

Arbinet has been offering Premium Mobile routes since late 2009. CLI delivery and MSRN support enable operators to deliver a higher quality experience to their customers and to increase revenues through higher ARPU and reduced churn.
“At Digicel we take every effort to ensure the highest possible quality of service for our mobile subscribers and inbound roamers. Having access to high quality voice services with direct fixed and mobile termination, CLI delivery, and MSRN support helps to meet these increasingly complex demands. Arbinet’s new Premium Mobile CLI solution provides us with the type of quality routing and voice termination required by our customers,” commented Mario Rojas, Director Carrier Services at leading Caribbean and Central American mobile operator Digicel Group.
“In 2009, Arbinet increased the flexibility with which it works with the marketplace. We launched ACS, a traditional wholesale way of working with customers and suppliers. ACS features standard rate sheets, utilizes supplier codes and has no fees,” said Brian Troesch, Sr. Vice President, Product & Business Development. “We made a concerted effort to drive away low-quality traffic from the network through the deployment of False Answer Supervision (FAS) identification protocols and technology. And we worked hard to identify the high quality direct termination routes from our 1100+ suppliers. With the addition of our Premium Mobile service, retail fixed and mobile operators now have a new choice to route their highest quality traffic flows.”
