NEW YORK – August 09, 2000 – Arbinet-thexchange, the full service trading solution for buyers and sellers of telephony bandwidth, today announced that thexchange has installed and cut over the routing and switching of members’ traffic to the Nortel DMS-Global Services Platform (GSP), located in thexchange’s 75 Broad St. facility in New York, NY. This fully scalable, carrier-grade international gateway switch is the core component of thexchange’s Global Delivery Platform, which physically routes and delivers all telephony traffic traded by Members. This deployment is the first that automatically loads this class of carrier-grade switching equipment with routing information generated from an online exchange engine.

“We selected Nortel’s top of the line, carrier-grade international gateway platform to provide this key switching function due to the robust reliability requirements of this application,” said Anthony L. Craig, Arbinet-thexchange chairman and CEO. “We provide a complete telephony bandwidth trading solution incorporating dynamic delivery, and it is essential that we manage our members’ traffic with reliability that is equal or superior to the most stringent industry benchmarks.”
