Acquisition of Digium by Sangoma Makes Astricon a Must-Do Communications Developer and Service Provider Event

 

 

 

 

 

DIDx has participated in at least a dozen AstriCon events since 2005. We believe it is of great value, so read on some news from different sources like David Duffet (director of worldwide Asterisk community) and Malcolm Davenport (senior product manager at Digium.) This is a very important year for Astricon since Digium was acquired by Sangoma.

New Owners, New Ideas, New Initiatives

As the new owners of AstriCon, Sangoma is bringing new ideas and initiatives to improve Asterisk and to grow the user community. Wondering how things have/will change with Asterisk? One thing for sure, Asterisk will not go away. It is happily deployed by millions of enterprises, developers and service providers still!

“Ask Them Anything” – Special Info Session at AstriCon
In addition to all of the great content at AstriCon, Sangoma and Digium will co-host a special session on Tuesday, October 9 to talk about the opportunities created by our new combined company.

AstriCon is the perfect place to network, mingle and reunite with Asterisk community members from around the globe. We believe the Astricon 2018 class of speakers will make this event even more special. So come for all of the great sessions, the amazing networking and fun – and learn about the opportunities created when Digium and Sangoma became one entity.

According to the US Census Bureau, telecommuniting grew by not 15% but 115% between 2005 – 2015. https://www.flexjobs.com/2017-State-of-Telecommuting-US/ Millenials and even those younger and much older seem to prefer working remotely. If they complete their job tasks on time and meet expected requirements, they figure why not? Many want to juggle working for a company such as Yahoo, IBM, Amazon or any other veteran or new startup … and in addtion with driving for a transportation network like Lyft, offering rooms at their place of abode on AirBnB, copy editing books, walking dogs and shopping for others via Shipt.

People Worldwide to Send 8.3 Trillion Text Messages in 2018

SMS incoming DID phone numbers from DIDxWhile “voice” is still important to convey tone and elaborate, SMS and Short Codes and the stars of fast, efficient communication today.

On December 3, 1992, the first SMS was sent. Neil Papworth, a 22-year-old test engineer for Sema Group (which is now Airwide Solutions), used a personal computer to send the text message “Merry Christmas” via the Vodafone network to the phone of Richard Jarvis. Richard was at a party in Newbury, Berkshire that had been organised to celebrate the event of the “first SMS sent.”

An SMS is a text messaging service if most telephone, internet, and mobile-device systems in 2018. It uses standardized communication protocols to enable mobile devices to send and receive short text messages. On the other hand, an SMS short code is a 5-6 digit phone number that is used by businesses to enable consumers to opt-in or not to their SMS programs. Once they opt in, short codes are used to send text message coupons, offers, promotions, and such.

DIDx offers incoming SMS function of DIDs of 19 nations, and just recently incoming Short Code messaging for most of the USA. Here is an example of excellent incoming SMS use. Each year ITEXPO conference and exhibition includes an IDEA Showcase. After the startups share their pitches, the audience gets to vote on the one that impresses them the most.

How important is that? A DIDx customer’s customer Suzahdi (cosplay and classic leather jacket brand) shared with us that when they call a client to get measurements and things like that, quite often the client does not answer the phone or if they do, is a little offended … as if the fact the vendor is calling sort of invades privacy. The Suzahdi rep said that when they text a question instead, the customer answers almost right away and is not one bit upset. It is almost as if the text has taken over as the preferred method of communication.

Most people, especially those under age 40, would go stir crazy if you took their texting option away. From Skype to WhatsApp to Slack or the standard SMS, people send over 6 billion texts per day just in the USA. According to Portio Research, people worldwide will send 8.3 trillion text messages in just 2018 alone. That’s almost 23 billion messages per day, or almost 16 million messages per minute.

According to Mobile Marketing Watch, text messages have a 98% open rate, while email has only a 20% open rate. That alone is a good reason for VoIP companies and CLECs using DIDx are very interested in buying SMS-enabled DIDs to resell.

My first Short Code experience was with World Market because I like to shop there, so I welcome the coupons and store announcements. Businesses short codes are great to inform and stay in touch with customers who opt in.

Many businesses use Short Code SMS for Two-Factor Authentication messages to enable customers to login to their accounts online, get account balances or chat with a business chatbot when they are using a new device. The business sends a 6 digit code that enables the customer to log in from the new device.

When people travel abroad, they often are not able to use their voice or texting via their domestic cell phone service, but if they have a SMS-enabled and Short Code-enabled virtual phone number from their provider, they will still be able to receive SMSes and Short Codes.

DIDx is the virtual phone number veteran since 1999 in beta and since 2005 in fully effective, efficient use and now by 35,000 wholesale telecom customers. Want to take advantage of DIDx’s incoming Short Code and regular SMS features? Log in to your account today, click to send us a message with your interest, and we will help you get started.

Port your customers’ phone numbers to DIDx.net, and they can receive messages from most US Short Codes. Kind of another awesome way to not only get voice and SMS customers, but also to RETAIN THEM!
