DID Exchange

What is a DID Exchange?

DID Exchange refers to a two or more carriers exchange their direct inward dialing (DID) numbers inventory over the internet, when people make phone calls around the world the phone service providers send these calls from one phone number to another, the process of carriers obtaining, provisioning and assigning one or more DID number to communication service provider network is basically a DID Exchange.

DID Exchange Platform, Why Build One ?

In this blog we will not be discussing the reasons for DIDs growth, instead we will be focusing on why do we need to build an DIDs Exchange platform.

The Problem (Globally)

P.S: We are not focused on the problems related to North America Markets instead we’re generally speaking about international challenges when it comes to buying or selling DIDs.

If you have ever tried to buy or sell DIDs from operators before you’ll immediately connect emotionally to this blog post 🙂 if not i will try to explain to you some of the problems you will face if you’re trying to connect to operators to obtain DID numbers.

How To End Robo Calls ?

TelecomsXchange contribution to FCC calling for a solution to end robo and spam calls

The Problem

Scam and robotic calls is a top concern for everyone. It is estimated that 50% of U.S. mobile traffic will be scam calls by 2019. Not only are unwanted calls annoying, they are potentially dangerous with unsuspecting citizens tricked into losing thousands of dollars to scammers and fraudsters.

Most of the provided solutions to people to avoid this problem have never been effective as simply people cannot only answer calls for known numbers, or simply just hangup. in fact users should never have to think about this problem, it is the responsibility of communication service providers to innovate to avoid this problem.

In this blog post I propose a realistic easy, scalable and secure solution to implement solution with collective efforts by all major network operators e.g T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T … and for the FCC to force the policies.

Twilio White-label

Twilio White-label

There is no doubt that Twilio has done a great job marketing CPaaS (Communication Platform as a Service) APIs and SDKs to the developer community and has went from a startup all the way to IPO .

Many apps and services that we relay on today such as ride-sharing apps like Uber and features like two-step verification when accessing our emails and web pages are mostly powered by CPaaS APIs like Twilio.

The Problem

Service Providers want to add CPaaS APIs to their offering, however almost every CPaaS Provider out there (Twilio,Nexmo, Plivo) are  not offering this in order to get the customers directly bypassing the CSPs (Communication Service Providers), they are competing in the market by either slightly less pricing, faster support and other factors  and trying to win the developers attention in order to win the API stickiness into their apps and win the traffic (Voice, SMS, Lookup…).
