Voice Communication Exchange Committee, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit membership organization, is now supporting the new all-IP telco category by combining IP services, IP devices, IP access, and IP interconnects. This announcement has been made by Daniel Berninger (News - Alert) who has skilled expertise working on the Bell Laboratories VoIP deployment team, as well as served as CEO of Free World Dialup and was a co-founder of the VON Coalition (News - Alert).
"Combining elements of FWD, ITXC, and Vonage with AT&T U-verse creates a category of all-IP telco distinct from any of the 21 service provider types recognized by the FCC (News - Alert)," Berninger, founder of VCXC, said in a statement. "VCXC offers a multistakeholder governance alternative to the FCC and gives operators an opportunity to demonstrate the public interest benefits of leaving IP communications unregulated."
VCXC offers member network operators immediate policy parity with information technology companies, as well as private member-to-member IP interconnects supporting IP provisioned services. Further, VCXC works with member operators to speed the transition to all-IP networks, preserve the unregulated status of IP communications and upgrade core voice service to HD voice.
"The transition from limited purpose global telephone networks to a general purpose all-IP infrastructure is well underway as a result of consumer choices," said Tom Evslin, principal, Evslin Consulting, in said statement. "VCXC under Daniel Berninger's leadership offers the private sector a forum for negotiating operating agreements to assure that consumers benefit from the full potential of the new infrastructure."
