The Way Toward Global Unified Communication
and Replacing the Telephone Network

Extend the Internet a bit, apply Internet thinking, provide a standard real-time interface for users and servers and we can get:


The bandwidth and network elements already exist and the additions needed only cost a fraction of what is spent on POTS replication over IP today.

In the proposed Internet+ model, network service providers are again given a way to monetize good offerings to users, getting revenue by providing quality bandwidth (instead of stopping VoIP over wireless and similar).



Internet+ is high quality real-time communication brought to the Internet, with metering and trust to allow new services as well as including the plain old telephony service (POTS) and replacing the PSTN.


It is time to release the power of our global network, our terminals, PCs, smartphones and having old telephony (POTS) as a seamless part thereof. The components are available, can replace the PSTN, can extend the Internet and will make the costly POTSoIP structure with all its problems obsolete.

In addition to getting a global real-time multimedia-competent network, at higher reliability and vastly lower infrastructure cost than IMS or other types of SDN networks, service providers can both replicate old business models as well as apply new business models.

The keys to an Internet+ world of communication:

SP Infrastructure without softswitches and SBCs 


The Internet+ model, allows trust, billing, and management to be separated from the IP transport of a certain service, thus benefitting from the advantages that made the Internet so successful.

For providing the old telephony service as well as any real-time multimedia service (Telepresence, IM, presence, SMS etc.), the service provider’s infrastructure collapses to commonly used elements such as  DNS, ENUM, and Management System for the “TOQrouter”.

TOQ stands for Trust, Open, Quality, and the TOQrouter includes a SIP proxy used for routing calls and messages directly between the endpoints as well as for delivering to users on the LANs or to 3G/4G phones (resolving the firewall/NAT traversal issues without use of work-around methods).

Service provider issues CA-signed certificates for trust, using mutual TLS between all SIP proxies on the WAN side. The same certificates can be used for the meter and to deliver CDRs for billing. The proposed TR-069 management is highly scalable, secure and excellent for reporting detailed usage via real-time CDRs.

A non application-specific transport network: Just like the Internet! 
+ Prioritization for real-time traffic - Just enable diffserv!
+ Delivery to the users, on LANs and to smartphones
+ Metering and charging of “beyond Internet usage”

For a Telephony+ service (including POTS): 
+ SIP being the standard to use (no deviations, extensions or gateways inside the global network!)
+ Usage of E.164 numbers in addition to SIP address (ENUM to convert to SIP or even to Skype and other islands)
+ Trust between participants (like having a telephony subscription/telephone line/number today)


The Internet+ can be viewed as an Internet access where priority/QoS is also available. The TOQrouter includes functions found in competent E-SBCs, such as a SIP proxy that both solves the firewall/NAT traversal problem and routes calls or messages directly to their destination, without introducing incompatibility and degeneration. It also classifies traffic for prioritizing - QoS. The TOQrouter preferably also contains the SIP registrar, metering and CDR generation for real-time telephony-type services. The interface is SIP as defined, allowing all SIP-based services, without introducing deviations. 

Calls to and from PSTN-connected phones are routed to the service provider’s gateway closest to the PSTN-connected party, which may be an SBC/softswitch-overlay network with a SIP Interface.
