Does Least Cost Routing of calls based on entries in a MySQL table.


Implement a new LCDial() application which perform Least Cost routing based on information defined in two MySQL tables (list of enabled providers, and rate for each calls).

AZCS also works in environments which contain multiple handsets types from varying vendors.
