Zoom to Use Voxbone Toll-Free Phone Numbers to Enhance its Cloud Meeting Service
March 18, 2014
Zoom Video Communications, a conferencing and collaboration company, will be using toll-free phone numbers from Voxbone (News - Alert) to connect to local telephone networks across the globe.
Eric Yuan, founder and CEO of Zoom said, “Zoom is proud to announce this partnership with Voxbone. We provide a world-class service, offering HD cloud meetings for people anytime, anywhere, on any device. This strategic partnership with Voxbone offers greater flexibility and affordability for our customers who rely on Zoom for global business meetings.”
It is expected that Zoom will be using the toll-free phone numbers from Voxbone to augment the capabilities of its cloud meeting service. Users wanting to initiate a conferencing session can now dial into a multimedia conference using a regular landline or mobile telephone.
To serve the global conferencing industry, Voxbone has made its carrier-grade inbound SIP trunking available over a single IP-based interconnection in global locations. Also the company does not charge per-minute fees for international transport of calls. Voxbone provides toll-free (ITFS) and mobile telephone numbers and inbound SIP trunks.
The solutions from Voxbone help cloud communications services providers, conferencing and collaboration providers and enterprises to deliver voice services to users cost effectively. Voxbone’s inbound communications or direct inward dialing (DID) services help customers in 50 countries. It also provides an emergency-calling service that is accessible in many European countries from a single IP-based interconnection.
Voxbone CEO Itay Rosenfeld said, “Voxbone’s service is ideal for Zoom because it offers carrier-like quality of service with Amazon-like ease of ordering and service management, and requires no setup. As a result, Zoom can focus on what it does best, and that’s providing a top-notch video and multimedia conferencing service.”
Recently Voxbone announced that it is the first licensed DID provider to offer inbound session initiation protocol (SIP) trunking services from South Korea. According to market reports, many multinational companies and service providers see South Korea as a lucrative market, and are planning to set up a local presence in the country.
The company’s VoxDID service enables cloud communications providers and enterprise contact centers to expand their voice networks into South Korea. With VoxDID, these customers can extend the international reach for businesses rapidly and at a reasonable cost.
