Soft Switch

A soft switch is computer software that emulates the functions of traditional voice circuit switches to control and process calls over a communications network. Similar to a computer operating system, soft switches feature an open platform on which developers can build innovative and specialized applications.

How Bandwidth is Involved with Soft Switch Software

Bandwidth is considered to provision soft switch software on a large scale. Our Points of Presence (POPs) are essentially massive switches that our customers can use to obtain the functions of traditional voice circuit switches. This enables our customers to control and process calls over a communications network. These capabilities are a part of Bandwidth’s UC Voice Product overview which allows UC providers to wrap voice, 911 access, and messaging into their offering. Bandwidth makes this transition easy with our private label SIP Trunking solution.
