SelectNet™ intelligence takes the risk out of VoIP. With our patented SelectNet™ Technology, the Tenor continuously monitors the IP network on a call by call basis for jitter, latency and packet loss, and transparently switches customer calls to the PSTN when required. This intelligent switching allows you to achieve the Quality of Service targets that your customers demand, at costs that traditional phone companies simply cannot match.

PacketSaver™ intelligence minimizes network congestion. PacketSaver™ Technology allows the Tenor to reduce bandwidth consumption up to 50%, by combining voice packets from several calls into a single packet to minimize bandwidth overhead.

NATAccess™ intelligence means greater security. The Tenor VoIP MultiPath Switch also features a unique technology that allows it to operate behind NAT-enabled firewalls. The innovative NATAccess™ solution overcomes the problem of NAT firewalls not correctly translating internal IP addresses into public addresses when a VoIP call is established with an outside party.
