Eventually something is going to be needed to allow for
routing between the multitude of VOIP providers - be that enum or
OK lets cut to the guts of the problem. How do we get VoIP peering
sooner rather than later ? Tomorrow, yet another year will have
passed. Progress starts today.
Assumption 1 - The big T(s) make about 50% of revenue off the PSTN
equivalent to about $2.5B, so don't expect any co-operation.
Assumption 2 - it has to be neutral - the Govt should NOT be
involved. Of course they are welcome to peer, in fact its a surprise
that Govt depts don't have inter-Dept peering already, its a bit of a
no brainer for them. Maybe GSN was going to get there......
Assumption 3 - it has to be simple, so that VoIP providers and end
users can get involved. (besides I'm on holiday and my horizons are
sleep, food and beer)
Assumption 4 - It should be distributed and scaleable.. (are you
peering with your city, your region, your country or the World ?)
So we need something NOW, that can be migrated if required. But we
shouldn't be waiting on committees or politicians.
