Tata Communications and Orange announce voice and signalling IPX peering agreement

Tata Communications and Orange International Carriers have announced an agreement to interconnect their respective IPX (IP-Exchange) communities for voice over IPX and Signalling Sigtran, which allows IP networks to inter-work with the public switched telephone network.

In line with 4G adoption, as more mobile operators introduce next generation IP-based communication services such as HD Voice, global IP interconnectivity between networks is vital in delivering the highest quality end-to-end service experience.

By tapping into both Tata Communications’ and Orange’s worldwide networks, mobile operators deploying innovative broadband services such as HD voice will have access to unprecedented global reach. The peering agreement enables faster connections and the best quality for voice over IP by enabling direct connectivity.

Alexandre Pebereau, Executive Vice President of International Carriers at Orange said: “IPX peering between global players facilitates the widespread international adoption of the platform and associated new services such as HD Voice and Roaming. Peering with Tata Communications enables both of us to extend our network reach and deliver improved voice quality and greater efficiencies to our respective customers.”

Peering agreements provide a major boost for mobile operators, as they are able to obtain global reach through a smaller number of IPX providers. This simplifies mobile network management and increases the speed with which mobile operators can roll out VoIPX services across the globe.
