With Internet Telephony Conference & Expo next week, the flurry of new product and new service announcements is sure to come. I just wanted to share this piece of news from XConnect since this is more of an educational slant than a new product pitch. XConnect plans on sharing their VoIP peering expertise at several industry conferences over the next few months, including next week's Internet Telephony Conference & Expo. VoIP Peering is a HUGE genre within the VoIP space and growing exponentially, so if you are looking to learn more about VoIP peering, below lists where XConnect will be speaking and educating about the VoIP peering phenomenon. I know a lot of my blog readers have asked me where they can learn more about VoIP and even potential business opportunities with VoIP. Attending VoIP conferences is certainly one of the best ways to educate yourself, whether TMC's conferences or some of the others listed by XConnect.
XConnect, the largest neutral VoIP peering provider worldwide servicing more than 75 VoIP service providers in 20 countries, announced today participation in the following upcoming events in the first quarter 2006.
VoIP peering allows operators to "identify" VoIP calls and exchange them end-to-end across IP networks, facilitating zero-cost settlement while preserving value-added services and advanced features for the benefit of subscribers.
