Orange and Tata Communications have signed a deal to interconnect their IP Exchange (IPX) communities in a bid to help mobile operators improve the quality of IP-based communication services such as HD Voice.

Specifically, the peering agreement concerns voice over IPX and Signalling Sigtran technology, which allows IP networks to inter-work with the public switched telephone network.

It will enable faster connections and the best quality for voice over IP by enabling direct connectivity, the two companies said in a statement.

In particular, HD Voice customers will benefit from "unprecedented global reach."

Last month, Orange unveiled a new programme aimed at providing operators located outside its footprint with access to its products, services and procurement activities, including international roaming.

Alexandre Pebereau, Executive Vice President of International Carriers at Orange, commented: “IPX peering between global players facilitates the widespread international adoption of the platform and associated new services such as HD voice and roaming. We encourage mobile operators to move quickly to make the transition to a multiservice IPX solution.”

Michel Guyot, President of Global Voice Solutions at Tata, added: “IPX is a crucial platform for the next-generation of IP communication services, and this latest agreement supports our strategy in partnering to provide the broadest global reach for mobile operators looking to take the next step in transforming services via IP."
