By Neustar

NeuStar today announced the successful completion of the trial of its SIP-IX VoIP Interconnection Exchange service with four competitive local exchange providers who are members of COMPTEL, the leading industry association representing competitive communications service providers and their supplier partners.

A detailed panel discussion regarding the benefits and technical aspects of VoIP interconnection will be held on Tuesday, October 7 at 11:00 a.m. at the COMPTEL Plus Fall 2008 Convention & Expo. The COMPTEL event will be held October 5-8 at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida. Tim Cody, NeuStar's Senior Director of Product Management, who conducted the SIP-IX Interconnection Exchange service trial with the COMPTEL members, will be one of the presenters on this panel.

"We're glad to have been working with NeuStar during this trial," said Jerry James, CEO of COMPTEL. "Our members that participated in the trial have told us that NeuStar's VoIP Interconnection Exchange service performed exactly as NeuStar promised it would. We look forward to the next phase of this project."
The industry is witnessing an increased migration to IP-based networks, which enable operators to realize significant cost-savings and also provide a platform for new revenue growth through next generation services. SIP-IX enables the transition to IP-based networks by providing a scalable cost-effective solution for interconnection between services providers.

The successful trial included extensive testing of provisioning of telephone numbers and policy management. This policy control enables customized route instructions to optimize cost, quality and service capability, supporting new business models and relationships.

"We appreciate the opportunity to work with COMPTEL and provide innovative solutions to enable ubiquitous VoIP interconnection," said Michael Misheff, NeuStar's Vice President of Converged Addressing. "We are pleased with the results of this trial and we look forward to working with the industry to accelerate the migration to IP networks."
