Abstract

See full text

Systems and methods for implementing telecommunications systems and services are provided. More specifically, embodiments relate to systems and methods for distributing traffic within a telecommunications network. According to various embodiments, systems and methods for establishing a communication session are described which provide for determining information descriptive of an originator of the communication session. Using this information related to the originating communicator, a prioritized list of processing servers and interface modules pairs may be determined. The accessing modules, may then attempt to route the communication session through the communication network based on the devices returned in the prioritized list until the session is successfully routed.
