Phone.com is a sponsor of HD Voice News.
Voxbone will be supplying Phone.com with its HD voice-aware iNum phone numbers. The iNum numbers will enable Phone.com customers the ability to be called through a single phone number for the cost of a local call from about 4,000 cities in 49 countries.
Described as the “international” code for the internet, 883 code phone numbers will roll into Phone.com and the company’s Virtual Office PBX service to provide a customers with a customized auto attendant. The combination gives businesses global number portability and the ability to route calls by time of day and/or send calls to extensions staffed with particular language capabilities.
iNum numbers are charged as local calls or are free when dialed from all major VoIP providers, including Skype and GoogleTalk, and are routed from a growing list of traditional service providers. Phone.com is providing an introductory offer to its existing customers to order an iNum through the PBX’s self-service web site at no charge.
Earlier this year, Voxbone announced it would provide support for HD calling through iNum and added on support for SILK and transcoding between SILK and G.722 via iNum. At the end of October, Phone.com announced its hosted HD voice service for SMBs, so Voxbone has built an interesting portfolio of HD voice.
