Minutes trader Arbinet-thexchange Inc. has made a commercial arrangement with wide-area peering company PacketExchange so VoIP service providers can connect to its voice exchange using a private IP backbone from 24 PoPs in Europe.
The PoPs will function as Arbinet VoIP Exchange Delivery Points, and Arbinet will extend its voice services to PacketExchange customers connecting to the companys network from all of its PoPs.
Our agreement with PacketExchange will be extremely beneficial to our VoIP members, allowing them to interconnect at any of these PacketExchange PoPs and transport their VoIP calls to Arbinets voice on thexchange platform, said Steve Heap, Arbinet CTO.
Arbinet said the secure network will provide high QoS, and minimize latency and packet loss.
This is especially beneficial for VoIP service providers looking to purchase retail-quality termination through thexchange, Heap added.
The new VoIP exchange delivery points are available in Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Dublin, Frankfurt, London, Paris and Stockholm.
Kieron OBrien, CEO of PacketExchange, called the deal a win-win situation.
At a time when corporate and domestic service providers are waking up to the vast benefits and potential of IP telephony, service quality and delivery is all-important. The rigorous performance parameters offered by our network will help Arbinet meet its commercial objectives, OBrien said.
