Research and Development

Our research and development activities are primarily focused on developing, improving and expanding The iBasis Network and increasing the efficiency of our interconnections with buyers and sellers of telecommunications services. These activities include the development of specific tools for our networks, such as our patent-pending Assured Quality Routing and PathEngine technologies, as well as specialized interconnection technologies like our DirectVoIP Broadband service, which is designed to meet the needs of emerging providers of consumer VoIP services. In addition, our engineering personnel contribute to the support and operation of our global network operations centers, which oversee and coordinate the operation of our ICO’s and IBO’s. Research and development expenses were $13.5 million, $12.6 million and $14.0 million for 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively.
