Cloud BYOC for Twilio, Zoom Phone, and other cloud communications providers

About Twilio BYOC

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…).
