Voxbone Adds First Wholesale Emergency-Calling Service to VoxDID service
Voxbone, a company specializing in iNum (News - Alert) telephone numbers and direct inward dialing (DID) service, announced the launch of a new solution VoxOUT, which enables providers of cloud communications, SIP trunking and other enterprise VolP services to support emergency calling.
With this launch Voxbone becomes the first provider to offer a wholesale service that supports telephone access to emergency services in multiple European countries, from a single IP-based interconnection.
Customers can also avoid the cost and complexity associated with alternative services for providing emergency-calling services in Europe, which require interconnecting with a local telco in each country, or managing a local VoIP-to-PSTN gateway at every customer location, according to company officials.
"Our new VoxOUT service gives VoIP providers a competitive advantage when targeting European and multinational enterprises by helping them overcome one of the biggest barriers to migrating to VoIP," said Voxbone (News - Alert) CEO Rod Ullens, in a statement.
Voxbone delivers high-quality inbound communications or DID for more than 50 countries and more than 4,000 cities around the world, as well as the first emergency-calling service accessible in multiple European countries from a single IP-based interconnection. It is available as an add-on to Voxbone's VoxDID service. The service is priced at a flat, highly competitive rate that costs significantly less than other emergency-calling options. The service will enable global cloud communications providers wanting to expand their services internationally.
"Combined with powerful IP-based communications applications and traditional voice-termination services for local calls to regular phone numbers, VoxOUT enables cloud providers to offer communications services that are superior to old-style telephony at all levels," said Ullens.
VoxOUT is initially available in seven countries – the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Ireland, Belgium, Luxembourg and Denmark. Later this year, the company will make the service available in additional European countries, followed by other major markets based on customer needs.
