Speek Selects Voxbone to Connect its Web Conferencing Service to the Global Telephone Network
The integration of Voxbone’s services allows Speek users to join a conference call when Internet connectivity is unavailable
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – June 10, 2014 – Fast-growing conference call provider, Speek, has selected Voxbone to quickly and cost-effectively connect its cloud conferencing services to the global telephone network (a.k.a public switched telephone network or PSTN). Speek provides simple conference calling with no dial-ins, pins or downloads, and instead uses a personal or business link (i.e., speek.com/YourName). By adding Voxbone’s inbound SIP trunking service, Speek users can now join a conference call when Internet connectivity is not available, or when the PSTN is needed to optimally route the call.
Speek allows users to connect to a conference call from a web browser or mobile with one click, making it a simple and seamless process to join calls. This is particularly valuable for global participants. Voxbone, which provides conferencing access in over 50 countries, enables Speek to bypass the international PSTN transit networks by using its private backbone, which avoids per-minute fees for international transport of calls. Users will also benefit from Voxbone’s carrier-grade quality of service.
“For the first time, our users can leverage a seamless, web-based conferencing solution that can be accessed globally regardless of Internet access,” said John Bracken, CEO of Speek. “We are proud to partner with Voxbone to deliver this landmark product, and we look forward to enriching our customers’ conferencing experience together.”
“Speek has quickly influenced the way we should approach conference calling and shows users how simple the process can be,” said Itay Rosenfeld, CEO of Voxbone. “Voxbone’s services are a perfect complement to Speek’s simplicity, making global conference calling the productive experience it was meant to be.”
