Audio-only this week for an extended (2 hours) discussion of the past year, from WebRTC to the recent SS7 security scare. Many Internet topics were covered in this session (and a few unrelated ones like how to buy wine) that brought together Andy Abramson, Marc Abrams, James Body, Jay Carpenter, Karl Fife, Emil Ivov, Tim Panton and Andy Smith.
Voxbone is the global market leader in high quality inbound SIP trunks, also known as DID numbers. Its customers include Telefónica, NTT, Orange Business Services, 8×8 Inc., LiveOps, and Skype. A key factor contributing to the high quality of service that Voxbone provides is its global private data network. This network is used for the international transport of VoIP calls from local PSTN networks to the service platforms of telcos, OTTs and enterprise contact centers. In May, Voxbone announced the ability to use its VoIP backbone for WebRTC calling, introducing a “global WebRTC-to-SIP delivery network” to the industry.
In this session, Dries Plasman, vice president of marketing and product management at Voxbone, will give attendees an introduction as to what exactly a “WebRTC-to-SIP delivery network” entails, including the value it adds for enterprises and communications providers. Attendees will also get an inside look at two compelling use cases resulting from Voxbone’s beta program of this service.

– Social aware voicemail. Greetings for friends vs business contacts.
– Missed call alerts. Useful when traveling or off the grid for some other reason.
– Call forwarding to alternative local or international numbers when unavailable.
– Multiple alternative phone dialing when busy or unreachable. Sometimes it’s better to hand over an incoming call to a colleague than miss the opportunity. Respectively if the call is from the doctor or a family member it’s better to route it to the spouse or an emergency contact than miss it.”
