The xPhoNet is a combination of information and telephone systems. It is a unique product that can be run just once in a country and provided as a service to the country's telephone operators. A telephone system of this kind is not offered or run by any other company. The development of the product started in 2006, trial operation mode started in 2008 and standard operation was initiated in Czech Republic and Slovakia in early 2009. Later in 2009, demo operation will be started for Germany, Austria, Australia, New Zealand and Russia.

xPhoNet is a combination of a database system, a maintenance system and a telephone exchange with the following basic features:
n The country database about telephone networks collects information on the country's telephone networks and operators. The data include: name of network and operator, web addresses and contact details, ranges of possessed telephone numbers, interconnection of networks, price lists of telephone services, operational and market announcements of the operators, test results, failure and reaction summary,  etc. The data serve for both non-professional and professional public, for both advertising and administration purposes.
n The tester of reliability and quality of fixed, mobile and VoIP telephone networks works as a simulator of a big number of telephones that continuously carry out trial calls within and among networks. Checking of failure rate of telephone calls and voice quality shows the reliability of telephone networks. Particular failures and telephone network failure statistics are long-term registered in the database. Basic data are shown in public web (via web interface) and details are available for network operators (via maintenance SW).
n The country telephone peering node ensures mutual star VoIP or SS7 interconnection of a big number of telephone networks. So, many small and middle-sized VoIP networks get low-cost parallel interconnection, as they do not need to use paid transit via fixed networks for their mutual calls. Also, the node ensures basic or substitute connection of small and middle-sized VoIP networks to other fixed and mobile networks via SS7 trunks. So, the node takes over the technological and price problems of difficult connection to fixed and mobile networks. Country peering nodes are linked to international telephony peering nodes.
n The public web telephone portal serves for connection of centre to public internet, so non-professional and professional public can have continuous and easy access to all information stored in the register of telephone networks (including data about reliability and quality of telephone networks). Anonymous users have passive access to information and authorized persons of operators may edit most information about their netwoks.
n The client SW for maintenance centre serves for operators who can easily get a prompt access to tester results. Users of the SW can follow current failures and failure statistics of all tested telephone networks in a country. Small and middle-sized operators may get a quick and low-cost maintenance centre basis and large operators may add terminals to their maintenance centres maintaining other telephone networks.
n Data interfaces for operators serve for distribution of data among operators (numbering plans of telephone networks, number identifications of ISPC, SPC and NRN codes, timing of strong and weak periods etc.) and for transfer of data from particular operators (contact details and operation or advertising announcements etc.).
The xPhoNet system combines advantages of conventional TDM telephony (stable technical and business links among networks) and advanced VoIP telephony (flexible and low-cost operation of telephone networks). The xPhoNet system brings an order and a transparent view onto  a somewhat chaotically developing VoIP telephony  and also onto relations between the world of TDM and VoIP telephone networks.
