Section overview

This section represents a route analyzer tool that allows to manage dynamical routes and simulate different routing models without hurting live voice traffic. It should be noted that this tool can be used only in case you are using the Dynamic Routing feature.

The Routing Analysis section represents a query form with the following parameters:

Screenshot: Routing Analysis form

(warning)   Attention

Please note that if there are changes in the Term Rate Table, you need to launch Dynamic Routing Manager in the Task Scheduler section (System > Task Scheduler). Routing Analysis shows routes based on the routing table built on the last run of the Dynamic Routing Manager. So you won't be able to see the latest changes regarding Routing Rules until Dynamic Routing Manager is restarted.

Creating a Routing Analysis Report:

To generate routing analysis, enter the next parameters in the query form:

VendorThe name of the respective terminator specified in the Client's settings and its account name
AccountThe name or IP of the account
CodeHere you can see matched code in the terminator's rate table
RateRate that is used to terminate the call
Dst Party IDShows destination party ID that is sent to the provider when all matching number translations are performed
Src Party IDShows source party ID after all number translations
Appeal

Shows the appeal automatically calculated by the system according to the chosen DR Policies (Routing section > DR Policies)

The Appeal is displayed as a value if a route is dynamic. For this route type, you can hover over the appeal value to get additional insights on ASR, ACD, SCD, PDD, Vendor Debt, Payment Due, Stats Qty. If a route is static, it's displayed as N/A.

(warning)   Attention

Please note that the Grouped type of a table view is available only for Excel XLSx and Web formats, it doesn't work with CSV or Excel XLS.

If CSV, Excel XLS or Excel XLSx type has been selected, an additional Send to field will be displayed. In this field you can specify emails of the clients, where the current report in the selected format will be sent.

Moreover, you can create (save) and display previously saved report templates by сlicking Save Query and Load Query respectively. Keep in mind that the load button will be present only if there is at least one routing analysis report in the Report Templates section.

Tip

To find more details about templates, please refer to the Report Templates article in our User Guide. 

To expand or collapse data in your report, click the plusor minusicons. If the data is Grouped in the report, it will be shown initially expanded.

If applicable, you can check the future terminator's rate, its effective date, and profit in the report by hovering over a current rate in the Term Rate column.

Screenshot: Future Terminator's Rate

Tip

Please note that it analyses the profitability by comparing orig and term rates. Therefore, an orig rate should be equal or greater than a term rate and profit margin.

(warning)   Attention

Please note that if a Reseller has an orig rate assigned, the profit margin will be counted taking into account both client-originator's rate and Reseller's rate.

By hovering over the Info  icon above the report on the right, user's name and time/date when a report was generated will be displayed in a pop-up window.

Export a generated report

You can export report data either in a .xlsx or .csv file that would contain currently presented data. Click the Export to XLSx or Export to CSV button to download a file of the respective format. Be advised that the Export to CSV button is only available if Output is set to Web/Plain.

(warning)   Attention

Please note:

  1. Inactive additive rates with non-zero value (for respective tags) won't be shown. Active additive rates with zero value will be shown. 
  2. If you change the currency in the Settings, you need to restart Dynamic Routing Manager in the Task Scheduler section for immediate Routing Analysis functioning.

Sharing a Report

Each time you get a report output, the system generates a unique link in the format of "/view?id=<uniq-string>". It allows sharing data between the users, even if they belong to different resellers (the feature works similarly to Share by Link in Google Drive). 

The link refers to the report data valid for a specific moment.

Example: When you send a link to a report, you ensure the recipient would see the same data as you do. If you change data in the system (for example, perform rerating), the previously copied link to the report will display data valid for the moment of generation (even though the actual data is now different).

You can also view the additional information about the generated report by hovering over the Info icon, which is located under the Output section:
