XConnect Launches VoIP Interconnect Service

XConnect, a carrier neutral exchange located in London, has launched a service the interconnects VoIP islands and facilitates commercial relationships between them, by enabling settlement or settlement-free exchanges of traffic. The company is also forming an "XConnect Alliance" that offers multilateral settlement-free between carriers. Founding members include Gossiptel in the UK, Telio in Scandinavia and VozTelecom in Spain.

XConnect said its service provides the five key requirements for bridging VoIP islands:

  • a number directory resource,

  • interoperability management

  • commercial relationships (including the settlement-free XConnect Alliance)

  • VoIP security systems and

  • identity services.

The XConnect service uses interconnection technology from Kayote Networks.
