Global Business Exchange for Telekom

A new global consortium of telecom carriers has been formed with the aim of establishing standards for the electronic exchange of data in international wholesale services.

GBET was started by Deutsche Telekom’s wholesale arm ICSS and other major players of the industry, including Verizon, TeliaSonera, PCCW, iBasis, and Telarix, in June 2011. The organization has now launched its website to draw attention to the activities of the organization and find new members.

GBET said its member companies will have a unique opportunity to participate in an industry-wide effort to simplify and create best practices for the electronic exchange of business information amongst the international wholesale carrier community.
