Araxxe Offers Free Sample of International Termination Rates Report

Do telcos spend enough time analyzing international termination rates? French vendor Araxxe believes telcos should do more, and that it is why they are offering free examples of their MarketWatch reports to prospective customers. The reports provide information about the historical and current termination rates for wholesale international traffic.

Araxxe argues that additional information on termination rates will help telcos to determine if grey routes are being used for traffic.

The sample report they shared with me presented the rates that would be relevant for a specific Asian operator. It contained tables of information about the average mobile termination rate during the period reviewed, as well as telling me about the highest and lowest rates. Monthly benchmarks were provided for a 13-month interval.

Some telcos will find this kind of information useful. Instructions for how to obtain a free sample of the MarketWatch report are given here.
