DUNDi provides a simple solution to the call routing problems experienced by VoIP users, much in the way that DNS servers have conjoined the Internet. This technology aids VoIP users by providing a significant improvement over current ENUM technology by increasing security and privacy, and adding authentication for services features, while also putting a limit on VoIP spam and other unwanted traffic. It will also identify partial numbers for use in advanced dial plans for analog phones, when combined with applications like Asterisk.
The General Peering Agreement (GPA) is a document that assures honesty, safety, security, and reliability among peer server managers who participate in the E.164 DUNDi trust group.
As Web Felter says: The GPA could do for P2P services what the GPL did for software. Exercise is left to the reader to decide whether that’s a good thing or not. I guess it depends a lot on which kind of software and which kind of P2P services you’re talking about.
