Flowroute’s modern Points of Presence (PoPs) allows customers to have inbound routes set to either SIP URI or Hostname as route types can now select their preferred inbound PoP based on the following selection:
|Point of Presence (PoP)||SIP Proxy||IP Range|
The Preferred PoP feature lets customers manage inbound voice routing on a per route level. For example, if you select “US East VA” as your Edge Set Strategy for a given Inbound Route, origination calls will be attempted first from “US East VA” servers. If those fail, then origination attempts will be made from the other PoPs that are listed above.
Configuring Preferred PoP
Associating your Preferred PoP with an inbound route is relatively straightforward. You can follow these steps:
Log in to your Flowroute account.
Once you’re logged in, click on the Interconnection menu item on the left sidebar menu.
Click on the Inbound Routes tab.
The “Add Route” option will be above your Inbound Routes list.
Set the Alias for Route which is a friendly name for the route.
Select your route type. Note that selecting an Edge Strategy only applies to route types “Host” and “URI.”
Enter your route value in this example format.
- Update Edge Strategy with your Preferred PoP.
- Click on Add Route to add the new route to your list of Inbound Routes.
