Australia's PIPE Networks Deploys Foundry

PIPE Networks, an Australian network infrastructure provider, selected Foundry Networks' NetIron MLX Series of MPLS-enabled metro routers for its first national VoIP Peering Network. The NetIron MLX Series offers IPv4, IPv6, MPLS, and Multi-VRF capabilities as well as advanced Layer 2 switching capabilities.

PIPE VoIP Exchange (PVX) is Australia's first commercial VoIP peering service. The new independent network allows VoIP providers to directly interconnect VoIP calls with other PVX clients, thereby reducing interconnection costs and increasing performance for VoIP providers. The PVX will provide real-time connection information, including call quality and billing information, back to VoIP providers to facilitate with billing and other activities.
