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.

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.

What is 60/60 AKA Incremental Billing on Telephony?

​60-60 billing is also known as incremental billing. is on the rise. Incremental billing is what happens when operators and carriers charge fee in sections. Those sections refer to billing on a single second. Per minute charging is when the length of a certain call is between 0 and 60 seconds, but no matter how many seconds, the charge will be for a complete 60 seconds. Call your colleague and say, “Aziz Ansari needs an XL leather jacket,” which might take 5 – 10 seconds, yet the charge will be for 60 seconds.

 

60/60 means whether you talk for 1 second or 60 seconds, you are charged for 60. Standard charges would on the other hand, be where you talk for one second, you are cJames Body and Prince Fred at Clueconharged for one second.
