Flowroute has announced that it has won iNum community membership, which will help the company provide flexible, streamlined telecommunication solutions to the thousands of enterprises and application developers it serves.
iNum (News - Alert) is an initiative launched by Voxbone, supplier of local telephone numbers to communications services providers and businesses worldwide. Voxbone (News - Alert) is a privately held company with offices in Brussels, Singapore and Los Angeles.
The iNum community offers iNum numbers, which work as global telephone numbers respecting the E.164 standard for addressing telephony services across networks. As such, iNum can enable connectivity between traditionally unconnected domains. It ties remote networks together – Internet telephony networks, social networks, the traditional telephone network, gaming platforms, etc.
Voxbone’s iNums support IP communications allows users to generate a local presence in new locations with a single, portable number reachable from throughout the world.
Voxbone, with deep expertise in VoIP and telephone numbers, was assigned +883 5100 in 2008 and started the iNum Initiative, which maintains the SIP and administrative infrastructure to enable this global number range for IP Communications.
“Offering our customers free universal telephone numbers complements our mission of removing barriers to enable agile, free-flowing communications,” said Flowroute founder and CEO Bayan Towfiq. “We believe in the iNum concept of one number for the new world, in which businesses thrive on local presence and global relationships not limited by distance or borders.”
The new membership will allow Flowroute to save significantly on the cost of international voice calls and text messages, while gaining the opportunity to support high-definition voice and video telephony. Along with the benefits of winning enterprise customers and their end users, the free iNums from Flowroute will enable application developers to expand the functionality of their apps.
Hugh Goldstein (News - Alert), Voxbone vice president for Strategic Alliances and the iNum initiative, said, “We’re very pleased to have Flowroute in our iNum community. We look forward to working closely with Flowroute to enable free IP communications services via iNum – the area code for the earth.”
