With direct peering, networks can exchange traffic after entering into a bilateral or multilateral partnerships or agreements to more efficiently use their resources, whether it is infrastructure, communications services or even customers. The agreement nexVortex has entered with US Signal will give the company more access of the services it offers to a new market and vice versa.

The resource US Signal brings to the table is more than 14,000 miles of lit fiber and metro rings in 23 strategic markets, making it one of the largest fully deployed networks in the Midwest. With Cisco’s latest carrier-class architecture, the network optical backbone supports colocation, disaster recovery, security and cloud hosting services with flexibility, resiliency, and scalability businesses now demand.

"We understand how critical it is to have high quality infrastructure paired with low latency SIP Trunking for both our customers and for the customers of nexVortex. We are excited to partner with nexVortex to enable this higher quality of service," said Kirk Dombek, vice president of business development at US Signal.

This infrastructure and geographical locations gives nexVortex the ability to deliver its expertise in SIP Trunking and VoIP services to US Signal customers.

Since it was founded in 2002, nexVortex has been providing the latest in IP communications with the development of the technology. It now offers businesses SIP Trunking, multi-site applications, hosted PBX, hosted contact centers, conferencing, carrier services and customized solutions. This includes interoperability with leading phone systems from Mitel, Cisco, Avaya, Digium, Allworx, Microsoft Lync, 3CX and more.

“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with US Signal,” said Wes Rogers, Founder and COO of nexVortex. “We have always been dedicated to providing highly reliable, highly redundant communication services and partnering with an organization like US Signal who shares that same focus is a natural fit.”

The peering agreement also simplifies the process in which VoIP traffic transits between the companies on its way to the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). By going directly to the PSTN, it gets rid of the constant transitions through the public internet, which can lower the quality of service (QoS) by inducing delay and packet loss.
