The Qatama Story

From small operators to large carriers, we help our partners navigate the ever-changing telecom landscape. That means we continuously innovate ideas into services – like our SIPassure service based on Open RTP. Enabled on all our routes, it confirms that your calls terminate on our directs.


A more purpose-driven partnership, with trust and transparency at its core. This is what matters most to us.

The word Qatama derives from the Inku language and means “to move with purpose.” It’s our guiding principle for all that we do.

We are pioneers of SIPassure open RTP routes. It’s enabled, by default, on all our directs. We are purposefully transparent about our routing. And we are proud of it. You have our assurance that your calls terminate on our directs. And, with our SIPAssure service, you can verify it. Call for call.

We are innovators of blocked CLI direct routes. We successfully launched the first blocked CLI routes by Central Asian Tier-1 carriers to offer a direct alternative to the gray market.
