As predicted, advances in wireless networks, services and devices integrated with VoIP ( define - news - alert) technologies are indeed booming in the New Year. In comes InfiniRoute Networks Inc. (news - alert), announcing today the availability of its Voice over IP (VoIP) peering service for wireless carriers. The company says its Managed VoIP Peering (MVP) service, launched last year, is one of the first carrier-neutral VoIP peering services to integrate and manage voice and IP routing for wireline, wireless and emerging carriers.
"The wireless segment represents an important opportunity for InfiniRoute Networks. We have had considerable success with several large mobile network operators leveraging InfiniRoute Wireless VoIP Managed Gateway services to connect to the global VoIP network," said Mr. Robert H. Turner, Chief Executive of InfiniRoute Networks. "Our patented VoIP network technology provides these wireless carriers with an alternative to paying the high premiums associated with terminating international traffic in the traditional TDM world," added Turner.
InfiniRoute's MVP service will now enable mobile carriers to terminate and receive international traffic using low-cost VoIP technology. According to the company, carriers will benefit from the following features:
--Greater access to global markets. Mobile Network Operators without extensive TDM networks can now economically reach international termination partners without significant capital expenditures.
--Lower cost of operations. Mobile networks can leverage VoIP to deliver international traffic at lower costs over a scalable and inexpensive packet-based infrastructure.
--Reduced technology risk. InfiniRoute's solution lowers capital expenditures associated with emerging technologies.
--Faster time to market. The fully managed service, combined with InfiniRoute's VoIP expertise, enables mobile network operators to enter the global VoIP telecommunications market.
"Mobile carriers represent a growing share of outbound international traffic. In many countries, more than 50% of all international calls now originate over mobile handsets. However, very few mobile carriers have established international VoIP networks. This is largely due to the network complexities, capital and operating costs associated with VoIP architectures," said Andrew Burroughs, chief marketing officer of InfiniRoute Networks. "InfiniRoute Networks enables mobile carriers to terminate and receive global VoIP traffic directly, significantly lower their network operating costs without having to invest heavily in capital and personnel," concluded Burroughs.
Today’s announcement follows the company’s two month-old partnership deal with tel(x), an operator of telecom “meet-me” interconnection facilities, resulting in what both companies say is one of the industry’s first fully-managed VoIP Peering facilities. According to the agreement, tel(x) will be hosting InfiniRoute’s Managed VoIP Peering (MVP) service solution at the company’s New York interconnection site.
