Iber-X launches GOWEX neutral roaming exchange platform

IBER-X, a Madrid-based company, has launched a neutral roaming platform called GOWEX. IBER-X claims to be the first telecom capacity exchange in Spain and Latin America. Its purpose is to be the roaming exchange platform for different operators and initiatives that are emerging from wireless technologies, such as Wi-Fi or WiMAX, and their integration with mobile cellular technologies.

I spoke to Diego Soro and Oscar Casado two weeks ago and they told me that the idea behind GOWEX is to have a neutral platform that is not controlled by any telecommunications operator.

GOWEX wants to be the biggest wireless exchange in the world, where stakeholders — large operators, small WISPs, municipal initiatives, aggregators, virtual operators and user communities — will be able to exchange coverage and users.

GOWEX believes that everyone can benefit: operators who want to offer more coverage to their subscribers, WISPs who want to get more traffic on their networks and anyone who wants a Wi-Fi connection everywhere.
