ITXC Corporation (Internet Telephony Exchange Carrier) was a US-based wholesale provider of Voice over IP (VoiP), Internet-based phone calls.

It was co-founded by Tom Evslin and his wife Mary in 1997 with seed money from AT&T and VocalTec (NasdaqVOCL).[1] In 2000, it had the largest Internet telephony network in the world[citation needed]. The company was acquired by Teleglobe Bermuda Ltd. in 2004.[2]

Technology[edit]

The technology to power ITXC's voice over IP network was initially provided by Israeli company VocalTec,[1] who also owned 20% of the company but later sold its stake. In 2003 the company moved to exclusively use Cisco's equipment.[3]
