ITEXPO is Where We Learn How to Win with SD-WAN

An SD-WAN is a software-defined wide-area network. It is a specific application of software-defined networking (SDN) technology that is used for WAN (wide-area network) connections. They connect enterprise networks such as branch offices and data centers around the world.

An SD-WAN has the ability to drive segmentation. Many say it is more secure than MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching Protocol) because MPLS does not encrypt traffic. SD-WAN automatically encrypts traffic.

Join our DIDX.net team at ITEXPO’s SD-WAN collocated conference and expo in Fort Lauderdale, FL Feb. 14 – 16, 2018 to learn more about SD-WAN, to develop business around the technology and share what your company can do in the area of wide area networks, security and encryption.

Mergers and Acquisitions – M&A … An Exciting Business Model for UCaaS, FinTech and VoIP

The communications and financial industries, especially UCaaS (unified communications as a service), FinTech (financial technology) and VoIP (voice over Internet) evolve so quickly that it requires highly effective marketing and manpower as well as investment just to halfway compete. Eunified communications and collaborationntrepreneurs who begin by bootstrapping a new product, service or idea cannot keep going unless they can attract a powerhouse to invest in them, acquire them or merge with them. The big guys have enough clout, connections, presence and money to fine tune the new but highly practical and attractive product, service or idea. Some entrepreneurs and small companies operate with this as part of their business plan: mergers and acquisitions. Those in the UCaaS, FinTech and VoIP industry are prime to attract such a windfall.

Recent examples of these type of acquisitions in communications and financial industries include:

 

nexVortex acquisition of Northwest Vox

Due to multiple acquisitions, Vonage now is second in hosted IP telephony revenue.

Cisco acquisition of BroadSoft

Magna5 Acquires NetServe365Fourth

There are many types of mergers and acquisitions.

Congeneric mergers: Two businesses serve the same market and customer-base but in unique ways. An example is a wholesale DID marketplace and hosted PBX who both provide these different services for entities that offer or use a lot of IP communications services and products.

Conglomeration: Two businesses have practically zero intersections of business products or services. For example, one business may purchase another business for no other reason than for the tax break. On the other hand, a new business can be formed. Then they merge, again, resulting in a tax break.

Horizontal merger: Two businesses are absolute competitors. They provide the same products, services and markets. They merge in order to tap into the best of each.

Market-extension merger: Two businesses that sell the same products or services in uniques markets. An example of two businesses that sell the same but to different markets may include Technology Marketing Company who serve mostly the Americas and ConnecTechAsia who serve mostly Asia.

Product-extension merger: Two businesses that sell unique products that have something to do with each other for the same market. An example might be VoIP Supply who provide communications equipment and Nextiva who provide hosted PBX solutions.

Vertical merger: A vendor of a business and the business OR a customer of a business and the business.  An example is an MVNO and DIDX or a VoIP company or international contact center and DIDX.

Some mergers and most acquisitions involve one business buying another business with cash, stock or both, or one business all the other company’s assets. The company whose assets are bought may then go out of business or start a new set of service and/or product provision. There is also the reverse merger (similar in style to a reverse mortgage). A private business has a chance to quickly go public. The private business buys a publicly-listed inactive business. This inactive business is literally not conducting business, and it has no limited assets. By doing this, the private business can become a new publicly listed business with shares that it can trade.

This is by no means a completely comprehensive list of types of mergers and acquisitions. Our goal in sharing this article is to inspire our DIDX customers, vendors and industry friends to understand mergers and acquisitions and perhaps include M & A in its business plan as a method of success.

One of the best ways to meet M&A-bound entities is at US and international conferences and exhibitions. These events offer meeting tables, booth meetups, receptions and many other extracurricular business opportunities. Channel Online keeps a list of communications events available including TelcoDays Las Vegas scheduled Jan. 7 – 8, 2018 and ITEXPO Fort Lauderdale Feb. 14 – 16, 2018 and FinTech Weekly keeps a list of fintech events where those interested in mergers and acquisitions in these industries can meet in person and finalize the deal! For the first time, ITEXPO offers a new collocated event The BlockChain Event. Reach to us at DIDX by contacting sales @ didx.net to meet you at industry events to discuss your wholesale direct inward dialing phone number needs and exciting trends of now and future.

 

Difference among Phone Numbers: Landline, Mobile, VoIP, Tollfree, National

Landline numbers operate on PSTN over copper phone lines. Remember our childhoods when we had a party line and the phone set was connected to a cable that connected through the wall of the room and from there through the phone lines on the telephone poles? Landline numbers are traditionally linked to a specific device like a landline phone set or traditional PBX. If people call your landline phone number, you will not hear your device ring if you are not near enough to it. As silly as that sounds, it’s true. If your landline phone number linked to a phone set at your office in Panama City, and you travel to Istanbul, you won’t receive made to it unless you pay your traditional phone company exhorbitant per minute charges for call forwarding.

Cell phone numbers (aka mobile phone numbers) operate over cellular networks through handheld devices.

VoIP phone numbers operate on VoIP networks. It is an identifier used to place phone calls. VoIP phone numbers look and act like regular phone numbers on the surface. The set of digits are spoken to or entered on a dial pad and then connect two or more people to talk. People carry their VoIP phone numbers with them no matter where they do in the world. VoIP phone numbers look, on the surface, like they are associated with a certain area code. To a VoIP network, there is not much difference among local, national or international numbers…because again, we note that you can received on your VoIP number no matter where you are on planet Earth. If you have a Tokyo, Mexico City, Bangkok, or Manhattan area on your VoIP phone number, people can dial any of those five VoIP phone numbers, and you will receive the phone call on the device that you have set for it to be received. You could be in Canberra, Paris, or Harari, and still receive that phone call.

What’s so great about VoIP phone numbers is that incoming calls can ring on more than one device you own at at one time, so you can receive calls in the most convenient way for you. You an have VoIP phone numbers ring on an IP hard hand set, on a SIP client, on a mobile app, or on a special gadget meant for enabling you to receive phone calls on your laptop or tablet. Because VoIP numbers do not have to be linked to a specific area code or city, they are also called virtual phone numbers or virtual phone lines. VoIP numbers follow the “owner” wherever she or he go. This offers the highly empowering feature of mobility!

Tollfree phone numbers (aka freephone numbers) are phone numbers that are billed for every single phone call made to them. The person or organization that owns the tollfree phone number pays that bill, not the people who dial the tollfree phone number. The person who originates, from a landline or even some mobile lines, the call to a toll-free pays zerio charges. People and organizations that own tollfree phone numbers have them so that their current and potential VIP (customers, colleagues, vendors, etc.) can place phone calls to them free.

National numbers are phone numbers that are not geographically-specific. They are available with a goal to make a person or organization reachable from anywhere in a certain country. No matter where an entity is calling the national phone number from, the cost will be no different. National phone numbers are available in many nations, but not in the United States or Canada. They are used by people and organizations that want to make it affordable and easy for their potential and current VIP (very important people) like customers, colleagues, and vendors.

How does SMS figure in? Customers can send SMS (aka text) messages to any of the above phone numbers and phone lines, only if they are “SMS enabled.” In turn, businesses can send SMS messages in to reply to the customers.

Our DIDX team plans to share a Facebook Live talk soon by DIDX Business Development Executive Moeed Alam,  in which the topic will be about different kinds of phone numbers on the DIDX Facebook page.

DIDX Drives Huge Vertical Market for Telecom, VoIP and Mobile Business via Direct Inward Dialing

DIDX Drives Huge Vertical Market for Telecom, VoIP and Mobile Business via Direct Inward Dialing from Muntwo Productions on Vimeo.

 

DIDX creates a huge and new vertical market for CLECs, ILECs, MVNOs and local regional telecoms and voip companies to sell their DID on the wholesale level. Normally, DID (phone numbers) are idle (not sold, like wasted inventory). DIDX helps “sellers” make them available to be sold anywhere on Earth, with the blessing of the Internet, creating a a new revenue stream for the hundreds of “sellers” and also for the thousands of wholesale “buyers” who buy and resell.

DIDX shares a new and lucrative Vertical Market. Even a small CLEC from Iowa can sell numbers to a small ITSP from New Zealand, for example. Both benefit greatly in revenue and market expansion. In addition, the DIDX sellers make money not just from the DID rental but also from the APC charges that the other CLEC pays to complete calls. APC is Access Promotion Contribution. LDI operators pay these fees on all incoming international calls.

DIDX empowers “sellers” to sell their DID numbers and “buyers” to buy DID numbers and resell to their end-users with the DIDX billing and control platform. DIDX provides the necessary billing software where we invoice the wholesale “buyer” customer on DIDX. In addition, the “sellers” and “buyers” see the same CDRs so there is no question on billing.

Wholesale level buyers in 170 countries use DIDX to select and buy the DID numbers from 125+ nations of a large pool of DID “sellers.” DIDX simplifies the buy/sell process to be a success for all. Plus DIDX offers free publicity and marketing tools to its members that include podcasts, press releases, product reviews, customer testimonials, videos, and more for publication about each of their companies.

How does DIDX help people and organizations reach their business, financial, personal and/or social goals? It is an online platform that enables organizations to sell phone numbers or buy and resell phone numbers. Once the seller sells phone numbers, that organization has more income and the customer service that DIDX team provides to the DIDX buyer thereafter is free!

The DIDX buyer, who is typically a communications service provider such as offering IoT, VoIP and/or cellular services, has purchased the phone numbers through the DIDX API and resells them to its customers who may be startups, contact centers, families, government organizations and such. Now, these service providers have a positive way to retain their customers because not enough of their competitive offer international phone numbers to buy, use and own!

didx be local to your loved ones and your customers with direct inward dialing phone numbers

Those end-users of the DIDX buyers who live and travel only in certain areas can be a local phone call away from practically any city in the world. Those end-users now have the opportunity to gain more sales from incoming calls, feel closer to their friends and family abroad, and keep the Internet of Things and People better and more regularly informed!
