What is the meaning of PDD, Post Dial Delay? PDD is the time that before hearing ringtone. For example when you call someone whose cell phone is closed, PDD will be high. This situation is an unwanted situation in VoIP.

What are the reasons for high PDD?
Some destinations have high PDD values. For exampla fo Syria the PDD is around 9 sec and for Turkmenistan this valuse decrease to 3 sec. This PDD can change according to the traffic profile. We need to send the traffic first to direct to figure traffic profile. If the values are higher than what we define, we need to inform vendor.
There will be a PDD difference between giving a traffic directly and above 6-7 different carrier. Because 6-7 carrier means sending calls above 6-7 different servers so it will increase the waiting time.
The provider can have some server or internet problems so it can effect the PDD rates.
Some Ncli routes can use home internet so it can be slower and opening package times are slow. This situation can effect PDD values.
If a call enters a loop, after 30-40 sec. it will end so the PDD will be high.
