Switch & Data
announces that the company will make a presentation on enhancing VoIP network redundancy using peering at the Fall VON conference and expo on October 31st at the Boston Convention Center.
Drew Leonard, Director of Product Marketing for Switch and Data, is scheduled to present on Wednesday, October 31, 2007, at 10:45 a.m. EDT, in the Solutions Theater. Mr. Leonard’s presentation is titled “VoIP Network Redundancy – Enhancing Fault Tolerance,” and will focus on a solution to reduce the impact of network outages by implementing a VoIP peering strategy.
Internet protocol peering is the exchange of Internet traffic between the customers of multiple networks. Mr. Leonard has been associated with peering since 2000 and has advocated the value of data, and more recently, voice peering for Switch and Data. His team established the Switch and Data PAIXSM VoIP Exchange where participants exchange VoIP traffic directly with other participants and avoid the expense and quality limitations of traditional telephone networks.
Voice call peering over the PAIX VoIP Exchange provides optimal voice quality by eliminating unnecessary VoIP/TDM call conversions during transit. A peering strategy also allows VoIP providers to bypass the public switched telephone network thereby reducing or eliminating costly termination fees through IP to IP voice call completion
