XConnect Teams with Telcordia to Extend VoIP Peering Reach

By Mae Kowalke, TMCnet Associate Editor

VoIP peering company XConnect (News - Alert) announced Monday a partnership with Telcordia Technologies, which provides telecom software and services around the globe. The partnership involves both companies integrating and distributing their respective ENUM registry services, which includes private federations for IP communications peering and number portability.
Together, XConnect and Telcordia (News - Alert) are working to speed up the worldwide adoption of VoIP and IMS-based services.
“By combining the telephone numbers associated with the Telcordia Service Interconnection Registry and those associated with the XConnect Registry, we greatly enhance the scope of our joint Peering Services,” explained Eli Katz, founder and CEO of XConnect, in a statement.
Katz added that his company is very enthusiastic about working with Telcordia to better serve Tier 1 clients through new federations. The partnership will allow XConnect to reach out to even more strategically-aligned service providers seeking ways to implement peering for their VoIP, PSTN and mobile networks.
Under terms of the agreement, the registries belonging to XConnect and Telcordia will be integrated, giving clients of both companies the ability to establish peering relationship in order to reduce interconnection costs and increase quality of service.
On the Telcordia side, the contribution is its Service Interconnection Registry—a database of intercarrier routing information for IP services. The registry is designed to help service providers stay competitive by reducing interconnection costs while at the same time optimizing business processes and improving operational margins.
On the XConnect side, the contribution is its XConnnect Registry, which is used by the company’s Global Alliance, DirectRoute, Enum Exchange and Private Federations offerings to create efficient, direct routing of calls to the terminating service provider. This capability reduces or eliminates settlement-based interconnect costs, and helps providers improve quality of service.
“As a leader in the communications industry, Telcordia continues to draw on its experience and reach to develop innovative interconnection solutions that drive IP adoption forward,” said Richard Jacowleff, president of Telcordia’s interconnection solutions division, in a statement.
Jacowleff continued: “Integrating XConnect’s and Telcordia’s
registries will present more options for our respective customers to cost effectively expand their IP service offerings to new customers and markets worldwide.”
Kingsley Hill, vice president of XConnect’s strategic federations department, added that VoIP is all about innovation, and this partnership is too: it brings together two innovative companies to better serve the VoIP market.
