“I now see objective voice quality PESQ scores on every number we test - visibility I didn’t have before we started Spearline”

Voice Assure Interstate
Organizations that have local access and toll-free service numbers across the United States and Canada could potentially be handling millions of calls every day from customers and prospects. Any degradation in their telecoms service, be it a drop in voice quality, or a complete outage, carries a high risk of damage to their customers’ experience and ultimately to their brand reputation.
With increasing network hops and carrier interconnects, there is an increased risk of problems occurring with connectivity, voice quality, CLI (caller line identification) representation and DTMF (dual tone multi frequency) recognition, and all of these can be happening without your knowledge.
It is essential to be able to check the call quality your customers experience when they contact you. It can, however, be impossible to isolate where and how connection, voice quality, and other call issues are happening. Oftentimes, organizations only become aware of an issue when their customers notify them, putting them in a reactive as opposed to a proactive state which is not ideal.
The Spearline solution
Voice Assure Interstate is a telecommunications assurance toolset that provides PoPs (point of presence) in multiple key US states and Candadian provinces, through which you can routinely test and monitor your numbers for connectivity and voice quality. The product is delivered through the Spearline platform, allowing you to replicate your customers’ experience in key locations across the US and Canada to test for connectivity, voice quality and latency.
