CENX, the Ethernet exchange company founded by Ethernet pioneer Nan Chen, has launched a voice-based version of its service.
The exchange – the world's first carrier Ethernet voice exchange service – has been optimized for IP traffic.
It has been designed to replace both TDM direct connections and legacy voice tandems, including T1, DS3 and SONET/SDH connections. The service instead enables capacity based charges over a platform capable of scaling to match traffic volumes.
“Every wireline and wireless service provider with voice traffic is looking for ways to improve the operational costs of VoIP traffic exchange,” Infonetics principal analyst Michael Howard said. “A carrier Ethernet exchange approach does just that.”
