Qwest Begins Direct IP Voice Service

Qwest bows VoIP termination service

Jeff Baumgartner, CED
“Qwest Communications International has launched a termination service it will offer to wholesale customers that carry VoIP traffic.
The Qwest IP Voice Termination Service is designed to help those providers terminate voice calls worldwide without taking a transition that typically involves three steps: converting IP to time division multiplex, conversion back to IP for traveling long distance, and then converting back to TDM for termination on the telephony network.
With the termination system, Qwest said its customers can hand over IP voice traffic directly to the telco, which, in turn, will transport it over its OC-102 network and terminate the calls to the public switched telephony network.
Qwest said it can terminate calls in 250 countries. “
This is groundbreaking news. For the first time, a major carrier will be forgoing standard telephone lines and their associated charges in favor of direct IP interconnection. This is simply brilliant strategy. It should also send a clear signal to investors of companies such as Vonage that they are soon fall behind in the VoIP customer land grab. Is the direct interconnection of carriers through IP transmission far behind? Broadband Parasites will no longer have an advantage over the RBOCs, ILECs and CLECs. Cable companies will be able to interconnect to last mile carriers through IP as well, dramatically increasing the quality of the voice connection. All carriers should immediately convert to VoIP systems or face massive loss of customers to the far lower cost of VoIP service.
