BT has announced the worldwide availability of its IP Exchange platform, the wholesale service that enables communications providers to seamlessly connect VoIP to VoIP and VoIP to traditional voice calls. This is the first BT Wholesale service designed specifically for the global communications market.

The service, which is already being used by over 100 fixed line and mobile operators in the UK, is now available from anywhere in the world. Customers can connect to BTís IP Exchange hubs using a different access methods including BTís high quality MPLS network with points of presence (PoPs) in over 170 countries.

In addition to the termination of voice minutes, the BT Wholesale IP Exchange service provides video and data traffic across a wide range of standards and configurations. BT has recently introduced a pre-pay facility that allows operators to grow their businesses quickly without the need for upfront deposits and is developing a range of value added services including hubbing and transaction management services.

Customers also benefit from the interface between BTís Ribbit and the IP Exchange platforms to leverage innovative software development and deliver rapid proof of concept, improved time-to-market and lower development costs for IP based applications.

For mobile network operators, IP Exchange offers mobile GSM signalling over IP (SIGTRAN) - the IP version of BTís successful Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) Roam Connect product. This service delivers IP originated text messages and signalling around the world to over 600 mobile operators using BTís resilient multi protocol label switching (MPLS) access.

Cameron Rejali, MD Products for BT Wholesale said: ďBTís IP Exchange service is designed to simplify the technical and commercial complexity of achieving IP interoperability, leaving customers free to concentrate on meeting the needs of their end customers. This approach enables our customers to quickly implement end to end IP interconnectivity at scale with minimum upfront investment. It allows customers to monetize the emerging SIP/IP interconnect model to increase profitable revenue and reduce financial and operational risk.
