Joins Voxbone’s iNum
Network for Global VoIP Calling
Customers Can Obtain Global Numbers and Call Other iNum Numbers for Free
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – May 7, 2012 – Spout Communications today announced it has joined the growing community of communications service providers that are offering their customers geographically independent iNum® numbers for free and providing free calling to all other iNum numbers.
Membership in the iNum community boosts Spout’s ability to provide global telecommunications solutions. The addition of Spout to the iNum network represents another provider’s acceptance and use of numbers that are not tied to a geographic location, as opposed to traditional numbers with country-specific codes.
Voxbone’s iNums support IP communications features, combining the best attributes of telephone numbers and Internet communications. They enable users, including members of VoIP communities, conferencing providers, small and medium-size businesses, and charitable organizations, to create a local presence in new locations with a single, portable number reachable from throughout the world. iNums use the international number range of +883 5100, which the International Telecommunication Union assigned to Voxbone.
Spout becomes the latest service provider to offer its customers the opportunity to save considerably on the cost of international voice calls and text messages while the service provider gains the opportunity to support high-definition voice and video telephony.
“iNum is the future of telephony,” said Nathan Wosnack, Chief Sales Evangelist of Spout Communications. “As a small and nimble yet experienced telecommunications company, we are excited to join the growing list of networks that support iNum”.
Functioning as a technological bridge between cloud communications networks and traditional PSTN and mobile networks, Voxbone is the market leader in providing worldwide geographical, toll-free and geographically independent telephone numbers.
Hugh Goldstein, Vice President of Business Development for the Voxbone iNum initiative, said: “We’re very pleased to have Spout in our iNum community. We look forward to working closely with Spout to enable free IP communications services via iNum – the area code for the earth.”
