Voxbone provides local telephone numbers to Internet telephony service providers (ITSPs) and virtual mobile and fixed network operators. Voxbone covers more than 50 countries and 4,000 area codes. Thus, service providers avoid the administrative workload of setting up and managing interconnects with local network operators, as well as negotiating with local regulators. Voxbone ensures that local regulatory requirements are met. The number blocks administered by Voxbone already are part of national and international routing plans, so calls are routed correctly at once.
What is more, Voxbone offers advanced features, such as dialed number identification service, DTMF, caller ID, fax (T.38 and G.711), and diversion. These features allow next-generation service providers to compete with traditional local voice service providers. On the majority of its footprint, Voxbone offers the capability to port numbers from other local service providers.
Voxbone is interconnected with one or more wireline operators in each country in which it offers telephone number ranges. A VoIP media gateway converts incoming PSTN calls to VoIP, after which Voxbone routes these calls on its private backbone to any destination in the world. Voxbone customers then process the calls on their switches and integrate the voice service with their own applications. VoxAPI allows customers to automate number ordering and service configuration. Integration is easy and straightforward because Voxbone strictly adheres to VoIP standards, such as SIP and T.38, and Web service standards, such as SOAP XML, for back-office integration.
