iBasis Selects AMS-IX for Inter-IPX Service

iBasis, a KPN company, today announced that it will use the AMS-IX Inter-IPX service as part of its strategy to extend the reach of its IPX product portfolio. AMS-IX offers iBasis a secure and efficient one-stop shop to interconnect to other IPX providers and exchange voice and data services.

The open interconnect solution provided by AMS-IX allows iBasis’ customers to peer IP traffic with other mobile networks and achieve significant operational cost savings by bundling multiple services over a single, managed interconnect in one facility. The mobile services initially supported by iBasis over the AMS-IX Inter-IPX service include Premium Voice IPX, LTE signaling, GRX, and Sigtran.

AMS-IX was the first to introduce a service focused on IPX providers faced with the challenge of a future in which the distinction between mobile and fixed networking will gradually disappear. The service offers a place where regional and neighboring IPX networks can efficiently link to each other and cover more territory, content and volume. The Inter-IPX service complies with the high quality standards required by GSMA and includes an Inter-IPX SLA.

The combination of the critical mass of business partners, the stable all-IP environment, the historical success of the AMS-IX GRX service, and this new carrier grade Inter-IPX SLA option led iBasis to select the AMS-IX Inter-IPX solution. “AMS-IX not only offers us a single point where we can exchange multiple services quickly with many different mobile operators, it also gives us guaranteed end-to-end quality of service through the Inter-IPX SLA,” said Chris Lengyel, iBasis Director of Strategic Marketing and New Products.

“We are pleased that iBasis has chosen to connect to our Inter-IPX service and in this way recognizes the value of this service for its organization and end-users,” says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “With its innovative and high level of service iBasis is a valuable addition to our Inter-IPX community.”

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
