What is A-Z Termination in VoIP?

A-Z Termination, also known as Afghanistan to Zimbabwe Termination, implies that a VoIP Carrier offers VoIP  Termination routes over the entire globe.  Listing all of the countries in the world, in alphabetical order, Afghanistan comes first and Zimbabwe last.   It makes sense to abbreviate the two.

Other abbreviations such as A-Z cc CLI, A-Z CLI, A-Z NCLI often seem like a mouth full.  They’re just a few relatively simple terms that represent the type of A-Z Termination route the Carrier offers.

A-Z cc CLI stands for A-Z Call Center CLI termination.  The CLI acronym stands for Caller Line Identification.  CLI implies that the Caller ID of the Caller with be portrayed to the call-recipient.  Call Centers and large businesses typically have low  ALOC.  Thus network demand on the Carrier is greater which typically leads to more expensive rates to compensate for the load.  Short duration, Call Center, traffic typically has an ALOC below 1 minute.

A-Z CLI implies the Carrier offers VoIP termination across the globe and will portray the Caller ID of the Caller to the recipient.  A-Z CLI offers will give the lowest PDD (Post Dial Delay) and offer the clearest audio.  Most carriers expect an ALOC above 1 minute over a A-Z CLI route.   A-Z CLI routes are less expensive than A-Z cc CLI.

A-Z NCLI is an offer that has global coverage but does not guarantee the Caller ID will be displayed to the recipient.  Most often this is best attempt at displaying Caller ID and is sometimes referred to as a grey route.  NCLI routes can be the least expensive but are more difficult to manage without CLI.  ALOC requirements for NCLI are negotiable with each carrier.

What is ALOC in VoIP?

ALOC is an acronym that stands for Average Length of Call.   ALOC is a measurement determined by looking at a specific time frame of your VoIP traffic and finding the average call length.  Most often your CDR (call detail record) or other reporting tool will give you this report.  ALOC is used to monitor traffic, measure call quality, find the type of call traffic, predict network demand and more.

The acronym is ACD (average call duration) has virtually the same meaning as ALOC.  However, ACD will also be used to represent Automatic Call Distributors in telecommunications.  Which is un-related to this topic.

Telephone calls vary in the duration of minutes used.  Calls could be as short as 6 seconds or longer than 1 hour.  If you were to compare the ALOC of a Call Center vs. traditional outbound calling, the Center would have a much lower ALOC.  Call Centers make more call attempts than your average business or home owner.  Many outbound calls that Centers make go un-answered by the customer or are very short in length.  Call Centers also have an obligation to handle inbound calls.  Their first priority is to help resolve the customer’s issue and second is to move onto the next caller that is waiting.  Call centers also use advanced outbound dialers and call routing software to enhance their call capacity.  This typically results in an ALOC under 1 minute and a high demand on network infastrcuture.  Traditional business or homeowners are making calls 1×1 and dialing by using their hands.  Thus their ALOC is often greater than 2 minutes and there is less of a demand on network infrastructure.

What is a CDR?

CDR is a VoIP acronym that stands for Call Detail Record.  A Call Detail Record is a comprehensive file of a recently completed call or call attempt over your VoIP network.  The information most often contains a Time and Date stamp, the CLI (caller) phone number, the CLD (callee) phone number, country of origin, call duration, billed call duration and charged amount.  Typically CDRs will be included with your monthly phone bill much like your traditional telephone provider.

More advanced VoIP applications and VoIP Carriers require highly detailed CDRs.  Call-ID, Delay, PDD, User Agent, and LRN information are just a few items included on highly detailed CDRs.  Some VoIP applications also require real-time CRDs from their VoIP Provider.  Most often this is offered via an online user portal.
