Voxbone adds toll-free PSTN numbers as complementary telephone access to Zoom's popular video and multimedia conferencing service
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Mar. 17, 2014 - Conferencing and collaboration services company, Zoom Video Communications, Inc., today announced that it has selected Voxbone to connect to local telephone networks around the world. Voxbone provides geographical, mobile and toll-free telephone numbers from over 50 countries and 8,000 cities worldwide for cloud communications providers such as Zoom, and enterprise contact centers. Calls to these numbers are delivered globally over a single SIP trunk, without customer capital investment and without traditional telecom-like lead times for provisioning.
As part of the agreement, Zoom has selected toll-free phone numbers from Voxbone for expanding the scope of its cloud meeting service. Zoom's conferencing end users can now dial into a multimedia conference from a regular landline or mobile telephone when a broadband Internet connection is not available.
Voxbone is well suited to respond to the voice needs of the global conferencing industry. Its carrier-grade inbound SIP trunking offering is available from many locations worldwide over a single IP-based interconnection. Voxbone does not charge per-minute fees for international transport of calls.
"Zoom is proud to announce this partnership with Voxbone. We provide a world-class service, offering HD cloud meetings for people anytime, anywhere, on any device. This strategic partnership with Voxbone offers greater flexibility and affordability for our customers who rely on Zoom for global business meetings," said Eric Yuan, founder and CEO of Zoom. ���
"Voxbone's service is ideal for Zoom because it offers carrier-like quality of service with Amazon-like ease of ordering and service management, and requires no setup," said Voxbone CEO Itay Rosenfeld. "As a result, Zoom can focus on what it does best, and that's providing a top-notch video and multimedia conferencing service."
