  1. An incoming call is identified as a customer, and is verified by source IP or User/Pass Authentication
  2. Ingress Routing checks for prefixes, then against available rate cards. There can be multiple ingress routes per customer.
  3. A Customer Rate Card is built from carriers above it, so the call can be presented to any carrier who is the parent of the customer rate card.
  4. The Carriers Rate Card links into the specific carrier.
  5. The selected carrier can have multiple IP addresses. The call will be sent randomly, but carrier CPS and Channel limits will be obeyed.

A rate card in ConnexCS represents a call path. If the rate card is incoming, it identifies the carrier providing that rate card. The customer rate identifies which carrier rate cards are used in its construction.
