CableLabs Gets 30 Responses to VoIP Peering RFI

It looks like CableLabs tapped into something with its recent request for information (RFI) about VoIP peering. The cable industry's R&D consortium reported that it received a whopping 30 responses from tech vendors and service providers to the RFI, which it issued just before Thanksgiving. But CableLabs declined to reveal any details about the responses, which will be reviewed by the consortium's MSO members. In the RFI, CableLabs said it's seeking information about possible "technologies, products and service solutions" that would enable cable operators to "share VoIP traffic directly over their respective IP networks." It also said it's looking to spur "the development of a production-grade VoIP peering infrastructure" to foster this traffic exchange.
