Whether you are an international VoIP wholesale provider or one of the popular business VoIP providers, you will need to use a proprietary or open-source billing solution. Using a FreeSWITCH-based system has multiple benefits to offer.

1. Performance

FreeSWITCH-based open-source telecom billing platforms offer four to ten times higher performance compared to Asterisk billing. It can support 500 concurrent calls with the same infrastructure, using which Asterisk billing can support 250 concurrent calls only. This type of performance benefit is beneficial to all wholesale VoIP providers, VoIP service providers, business VoIP providers, etc.
