Helo, we have different VoIP accounts in europe and opur latency directly to those servers (ping) is very high. Ping uses to be 350ms.

Also, we have some servers, one in Quebec has a low latency (120ms) and the ping from that server to europe (most of those servers) is just 80ms. Total 200ms. Almost half of our ISP route.
 
Need to know wich is the best way to use our linux servers for routing some services like Voip or others.

We can use OpenVPS templates or take profit of any of the servers that we are running (cpanel).

Thanks :)

If all you want to do the routing for is VoIP, you could set up a VoIP gateway that you connect to from your main site and use that relay to do the connection to Europe (though 200ms isn't really that good for VoIP, either ... remember that will be almost half a second of delay between one side talking and the other replying ... - typical recommendations are not to go beyond 100ms delay ...)
As for general routing, and apart from recommending getting a better ISP with shorter paths to Europe, you could set up a VPN to route the traffic to that server and out from there. In a more elaborate setup, and depending on the ISPs at the two sites, you could also go with doing BGP routing to automatically select shorter AS paths between the two sites, though a shorter AS path does not necessarily guarantee smaller latency ...
