iBasis Selects AMS-IX for Inter-IPX Service
AMSTERDAM --(Business Wire)--
iBasis (News - Alert), a KPN company, today announced that it will use the AMS-IX
Inter-IPX service as part of its strategy to extend the reach of its IPX
product portfolio. AMS-IX offers iBasis a secure and efficient one-stop
shop to interconnect to other IPX providers and exchange voice and data
The open interconnect solution provided by AMS-IX allows iBasis'
customers to peer IP traffic with other mobile networks and achieve
significant operational cost savings by bundling multiple services over
a single, managed interconnect in one facility. The mobile services
initially supported by iBasis over the AMS-IX Inter-IPX service include
Premium Voice IPX, LTE (News - Alert) signaling, GRX, and Sigtran.
AMS-IX was the first to introduce a service focused on IPX providers
faced with the challenge of a future in which the distinction between
mobile and fixed networking will gradually disappear. The service offers
a place where regional and neighboring IPX networks can efficiently link
to each other and cover more territory, content and volume. The
Inter-IPX service complies with the high quality standards required by
GSMA (News - Alert) and includes an Inter-IPX SLA.
The combination of the critical mass of business partners, the stable
all-IP environment, the historical success of the AMS-IX GRX service,
and this new carrier grade Inter-IPX SLA option led iBasis to select the
AMS-IX Inter-IPX solution. "AMS-I not only offers us a single point
where we can exchange multiple services quickly with many different
mobile operators, it also gives us guaranteed end-to-end quality of
service through the Inter-IPX SLA," said Chris Lengyel, iBasis Director
of Strategic Marketing and New Products.
"We are pleased that iBasis has chosen to connect to our Inter-IPX
service and in this way recognizes the value of this service for its
organization and end-users," says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. "With its
innovative and high level of service iBasis is a valuable addition to
our Inter-IPX community."

Internet Exchange based in Amsterdam - The Netherlands since the early
