i3forum, a non-profit industry body focused on transformation in carrier business launched i3forum Insights, a comprehensive and operationally relevant database for international voice services.
i3forum is designed and managed by i3forum members and available to both members and non-members of i3forum. It enables carriers to upload their voice traffic data into a database, which is then anonymised and aggregated. Each participating carrier is able to compare its own data against the data provided by other participating carriers using a state-of-the-art analytics engine, Tableau. The anonymised, aggregated data will directly support business and marketing planning, organisational alignment, routing optimisation, pricing and procurement.
TeleGeography, a data-driven telecommunications market research company was selected to build and operate the service due to their expertise in compiling and managing large data sets specific to the carrier industry.
