Sprint Offers New VoIP Peering Solution for Wholesale Customers

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

In a bid to offer high-quality, low-cost VoIP exchange, Sprint (News - Alert) has announced a new Partner Interexchange Network, or “PIN.”

According to company officials, as their partner community grows, this new network will offer a cost-effective alternative for those companies looking to lower long-distance fees.
The new PIN offering provides business-to-business wholesale exchange of voice traffic – helping to lower access termination fees and lower or eliminate LEC tandem fees, because partners of the Sprint community can directly exchange VoIP service between themselves, operating on Sprint’s global Tier 1 IP network.

According to Dan Dooley, president of Sprint Wholesale Solutions, the company has seen a growing demand for Voice over IP customers as well as operators who are  searching for alternatives for delivering voice and data traffic.
“As more companies adopt VoIP and migrate away from traditional TDM voice services, there is a definite need for affordable, scalable technologies to securely exchange voice traffic,” Dooley said.
Sprint’s new PIN offering uses a “switchless routing framework based on SIP and includes support for a number of verticals including wireline carriers, wireless providers and cable companies."
Voice peering solutions are beneficial because they make it possible to bypass the public switched telephone network or, “PSTN,” and instead use VoIP to forward calls directly to other provider networks.
