XConnect was awarded this prestigious distinction because it is the only voice peering provider to address ENUM registry, VoIP signaling and security while also providing a flexible solution for managing the commercial relationships between members of a peering federation.

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated the most insight into customer needs and product demands. The recipient should have optimized its product line by leveraging products with the various price, performance, and feature points required by the market.

XConnect is a neutral and global provider of federation-based VoIP peering and interconnection services. Its services include:

• Private Federations™, custom implementations of federated VoIP Peering managed by XConnect for groups of PTTs, Tier 1 Carriers, MSOs and other strategically aligned providers with group defined peering policies and settlement approaches.
• Global Alliance™, a settlement free federation created and managed by XConnect based on SIP signaling and with data security and privacy protection
• Direct Route™ offering termination cost reduction options via ENUM based routing to the wholesale community, as well as;
• ENUM Exchange™ offering private plan peering, and bilateral peering solutions.

“XConnect peering federations offer service providers the ability to exchange traffic via intelligent interconnects, while maintaining advanced IP based features, and exploring flexible settlement arrangements,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Lynda Starr. “The XConnect federations are currently the only dedicated and globally deployed peering solutions for VoIP service providers which address the need for a fast local ENUM lookup, while preserving the security and privacy of ENUM data.”

A managed signaling component of XConnect’s federations guarantees interoperability among all members and supports rich VoIP features including video and wideband audio. The service also incorporates sophisticated security functions to mitigate and prevent the risks of spam over Internet telephony (SPIT) and “vishing” (a type of fraud known as voice phishing).

Strategic federations enable either hosted or local deployments of the XConnect Federated Peering solution for closed user groups of service providers, with peering policies and commercial arrangements tailored to members’ needs. This includes the world’s first national VoIP peering solution—SIP Exchange in the Netherlands. XConnect is also deploying in-network private federations for PTTs, MSOs and tier-one carriers in other regions.

XConnect DirectRoute Outbound enables wholesale carriers to benefit from reduced cost termination to numbers in XConnect’s ENUM registry, and VoIP service providers to migrate inbound traffic from their TDM interconnects to their VoIP infrastructure while earning revenue on inbound calls.

Private-plan peering helps VoIP service providers that issue customers with private plan or internal numbers that cannot normally be used outside their network to accept calls from other VoIP service providers.

Lastly, the ENUM Exchange is a service that supports efficient bilateral peering (where signaling and commercial agreements are arranged between peers) by providing a facility for peers to securely automate the exchange of ENUM data between them.

“To eliminate the latency associated with remote registry queries, data from the central registry is pushed out to a patent-pending local directory server at each member’s end, which enables them to perform in-network queries while encrypting the database contents,” notes Starr. “This unique solution enables peering between members that are not comfortable disclosing ENUM data, including the individual phone numbers for each subscriber and implied commercially-sensitive data such as changing subscriber numbers.”

XConnect manages signaling between members, ensuring compatibility across multiple signaling protocols including endless variants and implementations of SIP. It supports multiple commercial models including balanced traffic relationships and more traditional minutes or call-based settlement.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
