to VoIP Providers : Don't Stay on your Islands

Share Article, the integrated Voice Over IP (VoIP) package for Internet Service Providers now offers existing VoIP providers the possibility to interconnect using ENUM technology, allowing their users to communicate with customers of different providers, for free.

– Leader in VoIP integration and first operating ENUM Registry, Internet One Ltd offers to Internet and Voice Over IP service providers the possibility to join the community to offer to customers what matters more: interoperability and advanced services.

"The current trend in VoIP is dangerous" says Jean-Christophe Vignes, Business Development Manager at Internet One Ltd "we see more and more services offering a basic VoIP package and customers happy to make cheap phone calls… until they realise they cannot talk to many of their friends who are using competing VoIP solutions! Because the telephone system has always allowed people using one carrier to call their family and friends who are using another, VoIP users obviously expect the same ease of use but too often do not get it. We believe ENUM and our community approach are the best way to modify this 'desert island' trend for the benefit of everyone".

Voice Over IP (VoIP) depends on specific Internet protocols to transmit voice communications. uses the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) adopted by the majority of VoIP providers today, but adds ENUM as a bridge between different ISPs worldwide and their existing or future customers. With ENUM, all members of the community can be reached using their unique Internet phone numbers by any user of the growing list of ENUM-Capable ISPs. The ENUM numbers have been delegated to Internet One, one of the first ENUM Registry worldwide, as part of the International Telecom Union’s numbering plan.

In addition, these numbers could be mapped effortlessly to different services such as voice, fax, instant messaging or even e-mail… So members of the community can always be reached wherever they are using the same number, and at the lower cost possible.

"We want our members to get the best VoIP experience, which of course means free or really cheap calls, but also a full range of additional useful services such as integrated Instant Messaging or micro-payment mechanism to secure e-commerce transactions" adds Vignes. "our modular infrastructure has already drawn interest from ISPs in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Swizerland and France and should appeal to any provider willing to complete their offering with one or more of the additional tools we offer: ENUM, IM… All they have to do is 'get off their islands' and become part of the community!"

Using the page, can be tried out for free until the end of September by any ISP wanting to provide VoIP service to their customers, or by any individual willing to contact users for free during the period. ISPs will then have to pay a small annual fee to remain part of the Community.
