InfiniRoute Selects tel(x) for VoIP Peering


"The New York tel(x) facility is an ideal cornerstone upon which to build the core of InfiniRoute's (news - alert) VoIP Peering eXchange (VPX)," expressed Robert H. Turner, chief executive officer for InfiniRoute Networks Inc. This is how Turner began his announcement today about InfiniRoute Networks joining tel(x)—a telecom operator of "meet-me" interconnection facilities, to provide what they say is the industry's first fully-managed VoIP peering facility, hosting InfiniRoute's Managed VoIP Peering (MVP) service solution at tel(x)'s New York interconnection site.

"The New York tel(x) facility is an ideal cornerstone upon which to build the core of InfiniRoute's VoIP Peering eXchange (VPX)," added the CEO. "Using tel(x)'s diverse connectivity options, InfiniRoute can offer global carriers immediate access to high quality VoIP-based interconnections to sites around the world."

InfiniRoute Networks Inc. was established in 2004 as the result of the merger between two private companies, IP Deliver and Proficient Networks. The company has been involved in the development of VoIP Peering services with numerous Tier 1 international carriers depending on the company for global interconnections. The company says its MVP service is the first hosted carrier-neutral VoIP peering service solution that fully manages the technical, operational and commercial complexity of worldwide IP-based interconnections for wireline, wireless and emerging carriers.

"tel(x) is a strong advocate of VoIP peering technology and its potential business benefits to carriers in our facilities," said Hunter Newby, chief strategy officer for tel(x). "InfiniRoute's MVP service is already being used by major carriers around the globe -- combining it with the interconnection infrastructure in the tel(x) facility is a natural fit for providing carriers with hosted MVP services and access to InfiniRoute's VoIP Peering eXchange," added Newby.

Thanks to the new partnership, tel(x) New York becomes the first hub of InfiniRoute's VoIP Peering eXchange (VPX)—an interconnection infrastructure of InfiniRoute-enabled carriers using the MVP service solution to quickly and easily exchange VoIP traffic with global partners without having to invest or interwork between competing VoIP standards and protocols.
