XO Communications Inc. said today it has interconnected with Stealth Communications’ Voice Peering Fabric (VPF), the world’s largest peering network that allows members to exchange VoIP traffic without relying on traditional telephone networks.
The VPF allows calls on different VoIP networks to be traded without traversing the PSTN. Rather, the VPF is a distributed Ethernet network that functions as an exchange or meet-point for VoIP traffic by allowing enterprises and service providers to establish peer-to-peer connections.
By joining the VPF, XO will be able to use VPF ENUM Registry and exchange VoIP traffic directly with other VPF members. In addition, for VPF members that need to deliver VoIP calls to the PSTN, XO will be able to offer VoIP origination and termination services nationwide through the VPF. By handing off VoIP traffic directly to XO, VPF members’ traffic will be routed across the XO IP network and terminated to the PSTN at destinations across the United States.
“VoIP providers need access to the traditional phone networks, and through the VPF XO can offer members a cost-effective way to deliver their VoIP calls to the public switched telephone network,” says Ernie Ortega, president of carrier sales at XO Communications. “XO can deliver VPF members’ calls to any domestic location on the public switched telephone network through a single connection to our network.”
