Level3 Goes Home

Level3 has announced they want to go home. To your home with their announcement at VON today.

This is no surprise as a few weeks ago they announced services for ISP's and cable company's.

What this means is better infrastructure and many more competitors for Vonage and companies like Packet8 network. It also means that Level3 has found a way to move all of those "managed modem" dial up ports over to VoIP. For those not in the know, as dial up has withered in many major markets, the modem banks, many owned by Level3 simply to service AOL has seen reduced usage. Level3 also had a softswitch project, code named Jaguar, for the past few years, designed to optimize their network and how it worked with peering partners. Lastly, they have for years been working on the IETF's interworking function to be able to convert SIP and h.323 traffic easily, while maintaining quality.

All that back end work and infrastructure has finally been unleashed. Now the questions are, which ISP's will sign up first?
