Usually CDR scrubbing/reporting is the best way to identify carriers
that don't deliver the desired ASR/NER, either entirely or for specific
destinations.  It can be a lot of work to build automated pattern
analysis but it's well worth it when pursuing quality/reliability, even
for non-International traffic (like tracking whether your carriers have

    So how do you know when there's an issue? Maybe that's a more
relevant question... do you test automatically somehow?

We have very low international volume also, and we are using Level 3
with mixed success.  Most of the time it's decent, but we occasionally
run into an issue with the smaller countries (today's problem country is
Palau).  Hopefully others on the list have some ideas for small users
like us to find great international termination.  Our initial idea is to
add a couple more options and then just cycle through them if they fail,
though as you state, sometimes the failure isn't apparent.
