How The Toll-Free Exchange Works

Hosted in the Google Compute Cloud – over a SIP interconnection, the Toll-Free Exchange takes care of all the details. We validate the rates and destination of the call by looking up the dialed toll-free number in the Somos S-C-P. If the Resp-Org has an established connection to the Exchange, and the rates match, then the call connects to the receiving responsible organizations’ network. The power of the Toll-Free Exchange is that a single S-I-P interconnection to the Toll-Free Exchange can immediately connect you to hundreds of participating Resp-Orgs.

Benefits of the Toll-Free Exchange

The Toll-Free Exchange benefits the Resp-Org by improving toll-free call quality, enabling modern features, bringing the calling and called parties closer together, fights fraud by improving data transparency, simplifies billing by allowing you to manage fewer vendors and rate combinations, cuts costs AND increases revenue at the same time.

What is the Toll-Free Exchange

The toll-free exchange is the first and only Resp-Org to Resp-Org routing platform to use authoritative routing information to directly connect Responsible Organizations. No inter-exchange carrier, no tandem, and no PSTN. This completely revolutionizes the way toll-free calls are made by using your existing Resp-Org Id to connect calls with other Responsible Organizations.
