ROME -- The Milan Internet eXchange (MIX), the primary Internet exchange point in Italy, has chosen NexTone's Multiprotocol Session Exchange (MSX) to enable Italian Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to offer Voice over IP (VoIP) services. MIX is a not-for-profit organization designed to promote the development and use of the Internet in Italy by improving the interconnection between different ISPs operating in the country and abroad.

As a key component of NexTone's IntelliConnect™ System, the MSX works with NexTone's Real-Time Session Manager (RSM) to provide MIX with the visibility and intelligence to exchange, optimize, secure, and bill for voice sessions (or calls) flowing through its interconnections. The MSX is designed to interconnect SIP and H.323 networks, which are the primary protocols used by networks capable of carrying VoIP and multimedia traffic, such as video and instant messaging.

In addition to enabling MIX to quickly introduce its new VoIP interconnection service, NexTone's technology also ensures consistent VoIP quality of service for all ISPs who interconnect through the MIX site.

MIX chose the NexTone solution after an extensive evaluation of session border control (SBC) products, and a six-month trial deployment. MIX selected NexTone based on the flexibility of its solution, its support for secure partitioning between ISP networks, and its ability to ensure service quality end to end.

Valeria Rossi, director of MIX - "With the development of a scalable and neutral VoIP platform in a consolidated interconnection environment like MIX is, MIX takes a concrete step towards making the harmonization and interoperability of VoIP technically feasible. NexTone's comprehensive IntelliConnect system will allow MIX to quickly offer new, high-quality VoIP services and extend these services to all of our Members."
