By enabling access to the PSTN, Voxbone will allow Voxeet users to join or create 3DHD audio conferences with a single click from any device, even in poor Internet environments
SAN FRANCISCO – April 24, 2014 – When it’s time to join an audio conference, people want two things: a reliable connection and instant access. A new relationship between Voxeet and Voxbone provides users in over 50 countries with an industry-first combination of dependability and ease of use. By automatically switching to a public switched telephony network (PSTN) connection, Voxbone will allow Voxeet users to participate in an audio conference even when their cellular or Wi-Fi connection is not strong.
Voxbone’s services will be integrated into Voxeet’s new generation of award-winning mobile conferencing apps with dial-in support, Voxeet 2.0. Voxeet’s dial-in support makes it fast and simple to conference in people who aren’t using the Voxeet application yet. It also lets customers switch to a public switched telephony network (PSTN) connection with a single click when their cellular or Wi-Fi connection isn’t strong enough to support Voxeet 2.0’s immersive 3DHD audio.
As a preferred partner for conference providers, Voxbone is the only operator that enables licensed access to local telephone networks from over 50 countries around the world, including Australia, France, Hong Kong, Japan and the U.K. Customers also benefit from Voxbone’s simple ordering and service management experience.
“Voxbone’s carrier-grade network enables Voxeet to expand our reliable, frustration-free audio conferencing to one-fifth of the world,” said Stephane Giraudie, Voxeet CEO and founder. “The partnership is the latest example of our commitment to providing business users worldwide with a superior way to collaborate from nearly any device anywhere.”
“Voxeet’s unparalleled audio quality is one of its unique selling points. Its choice of Voxbone confirms our leadership in voice quality for international calls,” said Itay Rosenfeld, CEO of Voxbone. “Adding the fact that we radically break with outdated telecommunications industry practices such as per-minute charges or tedious paper-based provisioning processes, we are the perfect match for innovative cloud communications companies such as Voxeet.”
