Somos, Inc. Announces Distribution Agreement with ANI Networks to Deliver Toll-Free Routing Data
East Brunswick, NJ, February 14, 2023 — Somos, Inc., a leading registry management and data solutions company, today announced that ANI Networks is now an authorized distributor for RouteLink® data. ANI Networks can now provide its customer base with access to reliable Toll-Free routing data that is updated in real-time. This includes routing data options that have not been traditionally provided via the public switched telephone network (PSTN).
ANI Networks is a leader in the wholesale, carrier-class telecommunications industry. Through its proven, scalable network, they deliver world-class service to over 400 local exchange carriers (CLECs/ILEC), VoIP providers, resellers and carrier customers. As an authorized distributor, ANI will add RouteLink access to their ANI Networks Resource Kiosk (ARK). The ARK is a patented online portal that hosts a wide range of tools and solutions that companies can leverage to effectively manage their Toll-Free network traffic.
Through the ARK, ANI customers can now access a full copy of Somos’ authoritative routing data, sourced from the TFNRegistry™. This provides a strategic benefit to both ANI and their customers—customers can capture high value through simplified access to Toll-Free routing data and analytics while Somos’ licensing agreement provides ANI with a profitable new revenue stream.
“ANI has a long, sterling reputation for providing their customers with one of the most comprehensive Toll-Free services offered within the industry,” said Bill LaRuffa, Director of Business Development at Somos. “With the addition of RouteLink to their service offerings portfolio, ANI Networks can further maximize the value, quality, and reliability provided to their customer base.
“ANI has enjoyed a long relationship with Somos, and we are excited to once-again work with them as a distributor of RouteLink data,” adds Gary Fry, CEO at ANI Networks. “As Toll-Free access reform enters its final phase in mid-2023, cost-effective access to this routing data will be vital to the success and longevity of companies handling Toll-Free traffic. Furthermore, it’ll help ensure that these calls are not a financial burden to the providers who originate them.”
