A new IP exchange in the Netherlands promises to cut transit costs, improve voice quality, and reduce the number of interconnection deals telcos need to make.
The Dutch Interconnection Alliance (DIA) was launched Monday by next generation interconnection and ENUM registry services provider XConnect, and investment group GCXS. The pair reveal the DIA will provide secure, multilateral, interconnection for next generation IP networks, and deliver several benefits, including those listed above.
XConnect chief, Eli Katz, notes the Netherlands tops the list of European countries in terms of adoption of VoIP, and says the DIA will complement a similar IP exchange federation it works with in Germany by creating “a critical mass of interconnected IP-enabled operators in Europe.”
Maurice Vonk, operations director at GCXS, claims the communications exchange will “revolutionize IP interconnection in the Netherlands.”
