DE-CIX NGN Delivers a VOIP Exchange Solution to a Community of Over 600 Carriers
Frankfurt, Germany – May 13, 2014 – DE-CIX , the world’s leading Internet exchange operator headquartered in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), announces today the launch of its DE-CIX NGN service. The service provides carriers with a secure and reliable interconnection environment for the exchange of VOIP traffic, ensuring high-quality interconnection in a controlled and secure environment. DE-CIX NGN will be delivered to carriers over DE-CIX Apollon, the world’s largest and most advanced scalable Ethernet platform.
DE-CIX NGN addresses the pervasive quality and provisioning issues faced by carriers when interconnecting their VOIP networks. Inexpensive call routing via the Internet is readily available for carriers needing to connect VOIP calls around the globe, but call quality often suffers. DE-CIX NGN customers need only to go through an interconnection test once and can then start sending/receiving traffic from customers and suppliers without the need for additional testing, while DE-CIX assures interoperability between networks. Another key benefit is that operators can now exchange traffic directly, avoiding the need to use third-party operators. Additional features include transcoding and custom federations inside DE-CIX NGN.
The existing DE-CIX customer base, which represents carriers from more than 60 countries, can use DE-CIX NGN without the need to order additional ports. Other providers can connect to DE-CIX NGN via DE-CIX’s award-winning Apollon platform in all major data centers in Frankfurt.
“As a neutral partner, DE-CIX’s mission has always been to ensure the highest quality global Internet connectivity, and DE-CIX NGN further affirms our dedication to this mission,” states Frank Orlowski, CMO for DE-CIX. “DE-CIX’s goal is to ensure that carriers’ lives are less complex. We have supported the ISP and carrier community for almost 20 years and work every day to build and run the infrastructure that enables carriers to deliver the reliable, high-quality services their customers demand.”
Carriers can be fully up and running on DE-CIX NGN in as little as two weeks. DE-CIX is investigating further roll-out of the service to other DE-CIX locations, such as DE-CIX New York.
