Voxbone, a provider of local telephone numbers to communications service providers and businesses worldwide, has launched iNum, a global telephone number that enables anyone to establish a local presence anywhere in the world. Voxbone will use the 883’ numbers in remote networks,’ he said. ‘This month we begin a preview with several service providers, Jajah, Mobivox, Gizmo5, Ribbit, iotum, Rebtel, Voipbuster, Voxeo and Voipuser.’
Among wholesale voice carriers, Arbinet, Belgacom ICS, Level 3 Communications and Stealth’s Voice Peering Fabric are already routing +883 calls. Since recognising the new country code requires an update to the switch routing tables of all wholesalers, international carriers and retail providers, +883 calls must traverse participating carriers’ networks to connect. A list of all such carriers and their rates for iNum connection appears on the www.inum.net site.
