International Toll Free Numbers
There are a few different types of international toll free numbers available, depending on the country. The mobile-accessibility of toll free numbers is not the same across all countries, so keep that in mind prior to purchase. For example, in the United States and Canada, virtual toll free numbers are accessible on mobile networks, but in many other places they aren’t.

Another aspect to consider is that in some countries, mobile accessible toll free numbers are able to be dialed through mobile networks and using landlines, but this isn’t the case everywhere. In some locations and countries, calls which are made to toll free numbers on mobile networks may not be free, and the specific regulations can vary from place to place.

Geographic / Local Numbers
Geographic numbers and local numbers are associated with specific locations within selected countries. For instance, in the US, geographic numbers can be purchased with specific “area codes” for different cities and/or regions.

Universal International Freephone Number (UIFN)
Universal International Freephone Numbers, which are also known as UIFN, are universal toll free numbers. These numbers offer excellent value because they can be dialed from a number of different countries.

Mobile numbers can be dialed using just about communication line: mobile phones, landlines, tablets, computers, and even pay phones. They can also be dialed from other countries.

National numbers are designed to work within a selected country. National numbers can be easily dialed using mobile phones, landlines, and payphones. They are not able to be called from all countries.

Want to get rid of your landline while holding onto your phone number? We’ve got the easiest solution with our number parking service.

Toll free numbers can increase incoming call rates as they do not charge callers but the receiver instead. This means that your business can offer clients and customers a free and reliable way to connect with your business.

You can get a variety of toll free numbers depending on the country you want to serve and target. Keep in mind, however, that not all toll free numbers across countries have mobile accessibility. For example, US and Canadian toll free numbers are mobile-accessible but some others may not be.

SIP Trunking

Hearing the phrase SIP trunking everywhere but don’t know what it means or if it can impact your business? Global SIP trunks can give your office phone system a boost by connecting different extensions through the internet.

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a means of initiating and sending voice and other unified communications services through the internet. And global SIP works with IP-enabled private branch exchange systems (PBX). A PBX system connects incoming calls with any extension within your company. Before SIP options were available, calls were made through public switched telephone network (PSTN) lines. But now, SIP trunking takes this a step further by enabling the PBX to send and receive calls via the internet eliminating the need for standard PTSN. And so, SIP gives voice over internet protocol (VoIP) capabilities to your regular PBX. It works with virtual phone lines that run through bandwidth data.

Call Routing

Call routing is a call management tool that distributes incoming calls based on rules set by your business. In other words, you can set rules to route incoming calls to specific employees, offices, departments, or phone lines, as needed. This can help you manage high call volumes.

Advanced call routing gives businesses an array of routing options to choose from. These are smart call routing strategies designed for optimal efficiency. Whether you have offices and employees in multiple locations or want to cater to global customers who call during off-hours, you can route calls to multiple locations, lines, or numbers in a way that ensures no calls go unanswered and that all callers reach the right department at the right time.
