The fast-growing XConnect Alliance offers the world’s first
multilateral settlement-free exchange of traffic between VoIP service
provider members. Alliance members choose to interoperate on a settlement-free
commercial basis irrespective of geography, and to pass on Zero-Cost
or reduced cost international calls to their customers.
Joining the settlement-free Alliance also extends access to VoIP
end-users across an IP-IP global network (avoiding PSTN), within
the secure XConnect Network environment.
Members ‘plug and peer’ with other Internet telephony
service providers around the world through a single connection to
the XConnect Network, avoiding the need to negotiate multiple exchange
XConnect Alliance members are Internet telephony service providers
(ITSPs), Voice over Broadband operators (VoBBs) and Broadband telephony
companies with points of presence around the world.
Membership includes the full suite of XConnect services; enum/directory
management, multi-protocol interoperability, advanced security features,
and contractual/commercial support for settlement free peering.
Participation in DirectRoute for inbound calls is optional and members

ITSPs that belong to the XConnect Alliance or an XConnect Federation
earn revenue on all inbound calls via DirectRoute.
