NeuStar Inc., a provider of third-party interoperability services, at TELECOM 05 introduced SIP-IX, services that enable network-to-network peering among partners trading voice, video and content using SIP-based technologies such as IMS and VoIP.
With SIP-IX, network operators offering SIP-based applications are able to use existing IP network peering facilities to originate, terminate and share calls or sessions for mobile, fixed and broadband communications. SIP-IX will offer an a la carte suite of application peering services that include policy-enabled shared routing and addressing directory services; provisioning and OSS services; identity authentication services; and inter-network QoS offerings.
NeuStar also announced exclusive relationships with Internet exchange providers Equinix Inc. and TELEHOUSE, and a contract with Amsterdams non-profit Internet exchange (AMS-IX).
The three companies each will integrate SIP-IX with their IP peering infrastructures, creating a combined service delivery platform that enables network operators to peer SIP-based traffic. Collectively, AMS-IX, Equinix and TELEHOUSE interconnect more than 640 global IP networks.
