It’s an integrated tool for VoIP network management, featuring class 4 softswitch, dynamic routing engine, ‘billing with Internet and QoS control instruments from a single source,’ company officials say.
Mediacore contains routing and billing modules which allow the user to tackle all VoIP business processes – ‘each of the modules is a self-contained and full-fledged product, which is a distinctive feature of the Mediacore system.’
The product is offered either as an integrated software tool or as separate modules – Softswitch, VoIP Billing, Routing Engine, Guardian.

The billing and routing system itself offers ‘complete call statistics, connection quality reports, financial reports and other vital information,’ company officials say, adding that the lossless routing feature comes standard.
