Tollfree Numbers Make Purchases Easy and Free So Own Them Now

Short Case Study: How Nonprofits Like Dove Gospel Go International with DIDX DID Numbers

A Pensacola, Florida headquartered VP of DIDX Suzanne Bowen, Karachi-based DIDX senior customer service exec Ali Muhammad and Australian James Hughes of Dove Gospel Global met up online via webRTC to discuss in short form how the nonprofit organization and DIDX work together to meet the needs of DGG and its community that is now as global as its name.

Dove Gospel Global global network director and pastor James Hughes says, “My heart is for a church without politics, and where Jesus moves in power and authority through his Holy Spirit.”

One major goal of Dove Gospel Global is to connect with religious leaders anywhere and of any religion. They searched for ways to make these leaders have an easy, efficient way to contact Dove Gospel Global, and for DGG to stay in touch. There are many communications issues such as poor cellular, landline and/or Internet networks in different areas of the world whether 3rd world, rural, emerging and also cost and security.

Because of the organization’s tireless search and testing of several solutions, they found happiness with a FreeSWITCH-based platform and DIDX for incoming calls. Now, the group has headquarters in Kampala, Uganda; Bhattiprolu, India; Lahore, Pakistan; Kent, United Kingdom; and with the main headquarters in Sydney, Australia. Anyone can call Dove Gospel Global via a local phone number of over 50 countries, and we have learned that those phone lines stay very busy. Call logs tell it all. Those 50 countries include USA, UK, Uganda, Turkey, Thailand, Sweden, Spain, South Korea, South Africa, Slovac Republic, Singapore, Russia, Rumania, Portugal, Poland, Pakistan, Nigeria, New Zealand, Netherlands, Mexico, Malaysia, Liberia, Latvia, Kenya, Japan, Italy, Israel, Ireland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Germany, France, Finland, Denmark, Czech Republic, Brazil, Belgium, Austria and Australia.

The number and scope of communications, new community members and collaborators and growth of their nonprofit movement in every way has grown and experienced more success, but that’s not to say, they have not had some tough times such as communications solution trials that never really worked, DIDs purchased from other virtual phone number service providers where price fluctuated, mostly upward, and service stopped for weeks at a time. The group’s growth was not matched by a flexible, scalable communications set-up. But once they developed in-house with paid guidance from a FreeSWITCH developer their own platform and integrated DIDX.net DID number service, they are now able to grow without the “growing pains.”

Watch Ali and James talk about Dove Gospel Global’s technological path to success.

 

Distribute Data, Scale Capacity and Achieve High Availability with OpenSIPS 2.4 Release

OpenSIPS Summit 2018 Amsterdam, Netherlands | DIDx.net from Muntwo Productions on Vimeo.

The road map of OpenSIPS 2.4 is an ambitious one, addressing one of the most complex but vital capabilities of a SIP server. The ability to exceed the status of a single instance application in order to scale in a shape of a multi-node instance cluster.  The road map of OpenSIPS 2.4 is an ambitious one, addressing one of the most complex but vital capabilities of a SIP server. The ability to exceed the status of a single instance application in order to scale in a shape of a multi-node instance cluster.

What are the benefits?

A. Data distribution, capacity scaling

B. Geographical distribution

C. High availability as data and service

Being able to add clustering support services like registration, calling and presence requires complex and extensive work. Still, the team at OpenSIPS are almost at the end, just a day before the beta release.

Let’s get the status from the OpenSIPS developer team. Watch the video to learn more.

Bogdan Iancu, Liviu Chircu, Razvan Crainea and Vlad Patrascu describe their contributions and collaboration in the the exciting OpenSIPS 2.4 beta release that takes place March 28, 2018 and then the full release on April 30, 2018, one day before the OpenSIPS Summit 2018.

A big part of Liviu’s work was in the OpenSIPS and FreeSWITCH integration and total restructuring and revamp of the user location module. They are planning to build certain clustering modes into it to help you fit better with whatever platform you have.

Razvan is planning to bring some CGRates and RTP engine to OpenSIPS 2.4. (More information from his contribution soon!)

Vlad Patrascu says he’s been with the project for more than two years. His work is focused on improving the clustering under layer and to support important features like dynamic topologies and full data syncing. He’s implemented one model for distributed user location and highly available support for dialer tracking.

Discover the 2.4 capabilities from OpenSIPS Summit formal presentations on stage, in informal discussions in the lobby and via relaxing night-time activities. You’ll learn from interactive demos on building clusters and more. Be fully immersed in the one day workshop focused on clustering training. Be sure to follow OpenSIPS on Twitter, LinkedIN, Facebook and their blog.

WhatsApp Messages from People I Don’t Know with Foreign Phone Numbers

DIDX CTO Kamal Panhwar explains, “Phone numbers are available in different directories and sometimes such information is revealed. There are many companies that spam their messages on Whatsapp numbers. If I have a Google Voice number (always a +1 US number), I can set it up as my WhatsApp number and send someone messages that way. This is true no matter where I am in the world. Now the person who receives my messages, that person has the option to report any of those messages to Whatsapp… as spam. Once the receiver reports this, it is up to Whatsapp to deactivate my number.

mapping virtual numbers to whatsapp“It is easy also if I buy a DID number from, for example:

http://www.tossabledigits.com/http://virtualphoneline.com or https://callhippo.com/virtual-phone-number and if that number is SMS-capable, then I can set up a software on my computer that will connect to Whatsapp server to register my virtual number. I will get an SMS on the portal of a virtual phone number provider such as the three above, and then I can confirm my API and get the password. If I have these kinds of numbers, I can broadcast Whatsapp numbers until someone reports my number, and WhatsApp blocks my number. WhatsApp does not allow such actions, and they are lightning fast in blocking the numbers that are not complying with their rules of use.

“At the same, there are some libraries in PHP that can still connect*. Hope I am clear. I welcome comments and requests for more information. I actually ran several tests in the past week to make sure the information I am sharing is correct.”

*This means there are some open source PHP libraries which can connect, but the programmer is not updating them to the latest version. For some professional people, these libraries can connect and send a message to WhatsApp, and others can’t.

If your business would like to have a more global presence via DID numbers, A.K.A., virtual phone numbers, ask your phone service provider to join DIDX.net. Then they make available numbers of 130 + nations for you. If you cannot convince them, go for Tossable Digits, Virtual Phone Line, Call Hippo or other like company that will!

In addition, DIDX never has and never will condone not following government regulations nor not following communications platforms’ guidelines. Privacy and freedom from spam, we absolutely understand how important they are.

As of March 25, 2018, DIDX Sends Calls Via Most Universally Accepted Codec G711

A very important goal of DIDX.net is to provide a consistently reliable service for each of its buyers and sellers of DID (direct inward dialing). This is the reason that we share this communication that references a very important email we sent via direct email to each of them and via DIDX blog post in August 24, 2017 and again today March 26, 2018… regarding codec translation.
Just as we announced in that email, we have stopped transcoding beginning the date of 25th March 2018. Now we will send all calls via the most common and most universally compatible codec which is G711.

DID Number Vendor Questions: paperwork, resporg ID and DIDX fee to vendors?

DIDX explains NANPA and RESPORG IDVendor question 1: Are you going to take the number over and run it via your underlying carrier with a monthly fee or do we, the vendor, issue paperwork to move the number to their carrier ?
Answer: At DIDX, we work directly with the carriers and local operators. They provide us a list of DID numbers which they have a goal to sell on the DIDX platform. We forward those DID numbers to our customers once they buy them from your inventory of DIDs that DIDX and you make available on the marketplace at www.didx.net. DIDX showcases those DID numbers to our clients (buyers). When a client purchases a DID, it is on a monthly basis per minute or with a certain number of included minutes and/or with a certain number of channels. Our clients pay us. We pay you.
Some vendors require certain documentation because of government regulations or internal processes from clients who purchase their DID numbers on DIDX. Some do not. Some, not many, have their own agreement form they require DIDX to sign if DIDX wants to make available their DID on its wholesale direct inward dialing platform. DIDX has its own vendor (seller) agreement to make sure a certain level of integrity is assured. People often say that DIDX is like a wholesale eBay, Amazon or Alibaba for phone numbers.
 
Vendor question 2: Would you take a list of tollfree numbers into your resporg ID or do we hold on to them in ours?
Answer: Please hold the DID numbers to you * Resporg ID.
 
Vendor question 3: What is our cost that we as vendors pay to DIDX to render your “middle-man” services? You take care of quite a bit that will make it much easier for me to sell through DIDX than on my own.
Your cost in terms of selling DID is zero. We will pay you for the DIDs in the price you and we agree upon. We add a small markup on the DIDs you make available to sell on DIDX. The clients pay the total price. It’s a win-win for all. As much as that phrase is pretty old-fashioned, it fits here.
Have DID numbers and toll-free phone numbers available to sell on the DIDX platform? Sign up today, run some interop tests, have a talk with us, complete our agreement, and you are on your way to sell to 35,000 DIDX customers.
* What is a RESPORG ID? In the North American Numbering Plan, a RespOrg (a contraction for responsible organization or the organization that is responsible for something) is a company that maintains the registration for individual toll-free telephone numbers in the distributed Service Management System/800 database.
The North American Numbering Plan (NANP) is a telephone numbering plan that encompasses 25 distinct regions in twenty countries primarily in North America, including the Caribbean and the U.S. territories. Those areas include the United States and its territories, Canada, Bermuda, Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, Sint Maarten, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, and Turks & Caicos.
