connectivity-oriented interconnection (CoIx)

In Next Generation Networks (NGN), there are two types of connection between the third-party networks and the NGN architecture: Service-Oriented Interconnection

(SoIx) and Connectivity-Oriented Interconnection (CoIx). Connectivity-Oriented Interconnection is the physical and logical connection ofnetwork operators and service providers based on the IP protocol

, without paying attention tointeroperability. Such an IP interconnection does not pay attention to the specific end-to-end services, which has the consequence that the service-specific network performance, Quality of Services

(QoS) or security requirements are not necessarily met. However, the CoIx interconnection also does not preclude some service from supporting its defined level in terms of interoperability.

Only Service-Oriented Interconnection (SoIx) ensures that the interoperability criteria are met.
