MERA Networks joins ITXC VoIPLink ready program.

VoIPLink Ready status assures carriers that use the MERA MVTS Session Controller product a rapid connection to ITXC.net for international call exchange

ITXC Corp. (NASDAQ:ITXC) and MERA Networks Inc., a key provider of carrier-grade session controllers for flexible peering of packet networks, has announced that the H.323 MVTS session controller 2.1.1 or higher is now VoIPLink Ready. VoIP networks using the MVTS in compatible configurations can now quickly and reliably use ITXC's VoIPLink Service for international call exchange with ITXC.net, one of the largest international voice networks.

Under the program, ITXC and MERA will continue to work together to assure that networks using MERA's MVTS can immediately use ITXC VoIPLink Service for direct VoIP interconnection with ITXC.net. ITXC and MERA will also cooperate in marketing and selling their complementary VoIP service and VoIP product solutions in select markets.

The MVTS is a feature-rich session controller deployed as the focal point of VoIP networks for revenue-generating peering with partner carriers. The advanced signaling and media interworking features allow connection of otherwise incompatible multivendor equipment, thus extending network reach. The RADIUS-based dynamic routing capability increases call completion rate and enables policy-based routing, whereas the intuitive graphical user interface makes the administration and monitoring process an easy and user-friendly task.

Last week, ITXC announced the general availability of ITXC VoIPLink which enables service providers to directly interconnect their VoIP networks with ITXC.net for high quality, low cost per minute call exchange with every traditional and IP phone in the world.

"MERA is excited to team with ITXC to provide a very valuable package to our mutual customers," said Natalya Korobkova, Marketing Director for MERA Networks. "We believe that cooperation between carriers and vendors is a critical issue in moving from vendor-specific 'islands of VoIP' to an open-standard, transparent and carrier-friendly communications infrastructure. By understanding and anticipating the time-to-market and cost management needs of our customers, we are able to satisfy them best and make our MVTS session controller a compelling choice for carriers who want to play and win in the VoIP space. The needs of carriers extend to wholesale long distance as well. VoIPLink addresses those needs directly and our customers are finding incremental value in knowing they can quickly and reliably connect through the MVTS to one of the largest and most cost-effective voice networks in the world."

"We're extremely pleased that MERA Networks has worked with us to establish VoIPLink Ready status for its MVTS solution," said Jeff Bak, Director of Product Management. "We've seen the MVTS playing an ever-increasing role in the rising tide of VoIP-enabled, next-generation carriers in Eastern Europe and Russia. Service providers and carriers considering MERA's MVTS for its session control needs can now feel more assured knowing their equipment, using VoIPLink Ready configurations, can quickly and cost-effectively exchange traffic with all of ITXC.net."

VoIPLink Ready compatible vendor configurations are engineered to conform to setup requirements to ensure offthe-shelf interoperability with ITXC.net. The setup requirements can be found at www.itxc.com/voiplink.
