When are We Required to Dial a Phone Number?

The following is a list of just some of the situations in which our DIDX.net team was required to dial a phone number in the last 24 hours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. To verify we really did intend to transfer payment to a vendor via Xoom payment service.
  2. To find out why Rich Tehrani wasn’t at a Zoom video conference yet. It was the quickest way to reach him while already overwhelming the network with the video call.
  3. To show at least 10 potential customers we really are the DIDX.net team, here to help them buy and/or sell DID phone numbers.
  4. To get assistance from Fedex. Phone calls are faster than emails for assistance.
  5. To call our mothers or fathers who do not use Internet all the time.
  6. To settle more complicated technical and business situations with current and potential customers. They prefer a call to their phone number.
  7. To make quarterly follow up calls to current DIDX.net members to find out their latest needs and to share new features that may have them with those needs. We give a choice to each DIDX.net buyer and seller member of how they prefer to receive calls. 85 % prefer us to call their phone number, not their SIP client, Skype, Google Hangout, Whatsapp or Facebook.

The phone number, the DID, direct inward dialing is very healthy in the midst of so many methods of communication available. We, like you, prefer to call our very important people organizations by the method they prefer. Visit http://www.didx.net/did to see how you can help your phone service customers be a local call for their very important people via direct inward dialing phone numbers of up to 140 nations and 10s of 1000s of cities.

100s of VoIP Acquisitions in 2017 Enable Bigger and Better; Let it Be You Next

VoIP is so not dead, and if you own a company that provides voIP services, now is the best chance you will ever have of getting acquired. And how and where can “VoIP” companies have the best chance to develop these business relationships? At the most highly respected telecom, IP communications, and IP technologies conferences and exhibitions! **

Check the list of seven of the 100s of telecom and communications related acquisitions in 2017 to date:

Australian telecom, tech and cloud computing company Field Solutions Group acquired enterprise wireless network services provider BMS Network Solutions.

New Zealand’s Voyager Internet acquired broadband, VDSL and naked broadband service provider Actrix Networks and Internet and phone service company Conversant.

Enterprise telephony (UCaaS) specialist company VoIP Telecom acquired French IP solutions company Norman company NormHost. VoIP Telecom had already acquired Egyption vehicle tracking fleet management system company Etit in early 2017.

Verizon’s XO Communications acquisition made it the third largest Ethernet provider in the U.S, which resulted in a gain of 1.2 million fiber miles.

Popular IP communications hardware and software components provider Sangoma Technologies Corporation acquired IP communications hardware online store VoIP Supply LLC mid summer 2017.

Wholesale VoIP company VoIP Innovations acquired French programmable communications API platform company Apidaze.

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.

DIDX VP Interviews Anthony Minessale II and Brian West of the FreeSWITCH Project

Thousands of customers and vendors that participate in DIDX wholesale direct inward dialing marketplace use open source communications solutions like FreeSWITCH, OpenSIPS, Kamailio and Asterisk. Anthony Minessale and Brian West, co-founder and General Operations Director, respectively, staff and huge worldwide developer community played and still play crucial parts in why and how DIDX enables the globe with wholesale direct inward dialing.

iMiller Public Relations’ Ilissa Miller, Kamailio’s Daniel Constantin-Mierla, TMCnet’s Rich Tehrani and Peter Dunkley contributed the questions and topics that DIDX discusses with Brian West and Anthony Minessalle.

lissa Miller, CEO of iMiller Public Relations
1) OpenSource and OpenCompute projects are changing the way companies develop solutions (such as FreeSWITCH) –
what is a key driver for the development of your platform?  What problems does it solve?
2) How are you leveraging the open compute initiatives to develop the platform capabilities?
Asipto and Kamailio’s Daniel Constantin-Mierla
1) It’s now more than 10 years since the start of the project — with the experience accumulated now, but going back when you started the project, would you do something different?
2) What are the biggest challenges you faced or still face as an open source application that tries to disrupt the rigid and somehow walled garden market of telecommunications?
3) Freeswitch has outstanding support for video conferencing and webrtc. Are these technologies going to change radically the way we communicate? How do you see their impact to residential users as well as enterprises?
4) Can you give some numbers regarding the performances of Freeswitch as a video conference system on a commodity server these days (e.g., price range 2-5000USD, 2-4 CPUs, 8-16GB memory)?
5) How is the performance affected when running on virtualized systems, what are the characteristics of the virtual machine that impact the most?
Rich Tehrani, TMCNet CEO and director of the popular ITEXPO, AllAbouttheAPI, and IoT Evolution and other tech conferences asks:
1)      How did you come up with the idea to launch FreeSwitch?
2)      As the product has evolved – what accomplishment(s) are you most proud of?
3)      Are there any specific geographies or markets most suited to FreeSwitch?
Peter Dunkley, Director of Product Management – Telephony at NewVoiceMedia
1) For the features that are the same as they were as many as ten years ago at the beginning, why have those survived the test of time?
2) A few years ago WebRTC was a hot topic, now people talk about RTC (encompassing more than just audio and video), where does Freeswitch fit with this new (beyond next-generation) technology?
3) Traditionally Freeswitch would have been installed in the “owners” data centre or machine room.  Today everyone is moving to the cloud.  How well does Freeswitch fit into this new deployment model?
4) More and more enterprises and individuals are using technologies like Skype, Skype for Business, Slack, etc.  A lot of these technologies do not require organisations to deploy or own anything, some push a lot of (what used to be network) functions into the client.  What benefits does Freeswitch bring to organisations using these technologies?
5) More generally, what are the biggest three industry developments or changes you’ve observed in the past 10 years? Which industry initiatives and technologies have proved to be over-hyped?
