MERA's Softswitch Supports Voice Peering Fabric's ENUM Registry Lookup

MERA Systems' next generation MVTS II (MERA VoIP Transit Softswitch II) will support various options for a carrier to send requests to ENUM registries, analyze the responses and use information received to take optimal routing decisions for each particular call.

In particular, MERA Systems is working with Stealth Communications' Voice Peering Fabric to deliver an effective routing solution with integrated ENUM lookup capabilities.

Voice Peering Fabric (VPF) functions as an exchange or meet-point and is designed as a private voice Internet, allowing its members to establish peer-to-peer connections and exchange VoIP traffic and telephony related services in a secure, quality-of-service environment. VPF ENUM Registry will make it possible for participating carriers to route VoIP calls end-to-end through IP networks, thus avoiding PSTN charges.

Located in 9 U.S. cities and London, the Voice Peering Fabric has become the preferred peering platform and marketplace for Service Providers, Enterprises, and Government Agencies. In 2005, traffic on the VPF reached over 18 billion minutes and is expected to exceed 80 billion minutes in 2006.
