FiberNet Telecom Group Inc.s and its subsidiary Availius have announced the new ENUM offering called Phonomenum.
ENUM refers to the Internet Engineering Task Force protocol that maps telephone numbers to resources on the Internet in much the same way a Domain Name System architecture maps domain names and host names to IP addresses. It is a key technology that enables VoIP calls to be routed directly between VoIP providers.
With a diverse portfolio of services for network operators and data facility users, Availius custom designs, implements and manages network, infrastructure and business solutions to solve critical business issues.
Phonomenum, launched last October, is an ENUM-based technology platform that enables carriers, cable operators and VoIP service providers to establish peering connections and exchange VoIP traffic.
Phonomenum answers the challenge of interconnecting multiple voice-over-IP service providers to directly exchange VoIP traffic, said Ernest Hoffmann, vice president of engineering for FiberNet. This platform also incorporates a carrier-class implementation of ENUM to address the need for an extremely reliable, highly scalable service that can handle hundreds of millions of phone numbers as demand for VoIP service grows.
