Selecting the Perfect Inbound DID Service
In short, local telephone companies or local exchange carriers that provide Direct Inward Dialing (DID) offer telephone numbers for individuals to call for both consumer and business use. For example, companies can purchase telephone numbers that can then be called over multiple telephone lines, which its private branch exchange (PBX (News - Alert)) automatically switches in and out as calls are placed to the appropriate business department. Individuals can also purchase DIDs for personal use to make long-distance calls worldwide at a fixed monthly payment rate. Overall, DIDs serve as a cost-efficient way to make otherwise complex, costly telephone calls while at the same time increasing productivity and ease-of-use.
In the VoIP space, there are so many contenders that it can oftentimes be difficult for businesses to settle upon the right DID service. If you’re a Canada-based calling card company, VoIP carrier, inbound call center, CLEC or virtual carrier requiring a local presence within several different locations in Canada or even around the globe, then take some time to consider Iristel.

By leveraging its CLEC capabilities, the company provides its customers with the control they need to create new products and services through SIP and VoIP. This helps lower costs associated to interconnection, while at the same time strengthens network redundancy as compared to having only one single public switched telephone network (PSTN) interconnection point, the site adds.
