Xconnect starts HD voice initiative in the UK

Wednesday 8 September 2010 | 10:42 CET | News
VoIP services provider Xconnect announced an initiative with technology companies Polycom, BroadSoft and Dialogic to promote the adoption of HD voice by service providers in the UK. The initiative was launched in response to UK service providers' interest in HD voice services, reflected in discussion during a recent Internet Telephony Service Providers Association (ITSPA) meeting. Through workshops and cooperative communication and marketing, the HD initiative is designed to raise awareness and educate service providers about the benefits of HD voice and help them resolve implementation challenges. As part of the initiative, XConnect announced that the XConnect Global HD Voice Federation is now open to HD voice-enabled service providers globally, following its launch in the US. First to join from the UK are service providers Simwood, SureVoIP and thevoicefactory. The federation enables the exchange of HD voice calls among all participants, all interconnecting through XConnect's carrier hub and routing through phone-number lookups via its carrier ENUM registry. XConnect has established the HD federation to allow cross-network support for HD voice and potentially for multimedia IP-based services, such as presence and video.
