Voxbone is a company that provides worldwide geographical, mobile and toll-free telephone numbers for direct inward dialing (also known as DID numbers or inbound SIP trunks).[1] The company delivers its services to customers globally using a private MPLS data network core network that connects to local PSTN telephone networks in over 50 countries.[2]. With its service, Voxbone connects cloud communications providers to telephone networks and allows multinational enterprises and telecommunications operators to extend the international reach of their voice networks.

Voxbone was founded in Brussels, Belgium, in 2003 by Rodrigue Ullens and François Strumann as Voxbone SA/NV.[3]. They believed that the globalization of economies and increasing international mobility of people would lead to a strong demand in telephone numbers and SIP trunks from foreign countries.

Products[edit]

VoxDID[4] and Vox800:[5] Voxbone’s geographic, non-geographic and toll-free telephone numbers for inbound SIP Trunking, connecting the local public switched telephone network (PSTN) with a global IP backbone in more than 50 countries.

VoxFAX[6] and VoxSMS:[7] In addition to standard voice services, the company provides value-added services, such as SMS and FAX over IP.

Calls are then routed via redundant IP links to the nearest Voxbone SuperPOP in Brussels, New York, Los Angeles, Frankfurt or Hong Kong. From there, they are transported to the customer's IPPBX or service platform, anywhere in the world over the Internet or a private interconnection.
