Ring-to Skype Beta Now Available on the DIDXchange

By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor


Skype (News - Alert) is now available to more than 17,000 carriers and operators who are also members of DIDX. Super Technologies has announced that both wired and wireless, as well as newer VoIP companies and social community applications providers now have access to a beta “ring-to” Skype solution. This capability enables all active DIDX members to forward calls to session initiation protocol “SIP” and IAX2 on most Windows, Linux and Mac computers, smart phones and other Internet devices.

"Our aim as the developer team at Super Technologies (News - Alert), Inc. and in this case for our DIDX solution is to enable our wholesale customers to capture more of the global market and serve as many of their users' IP communications needs as possible,” said Muneeb Iqbal, sales executive at Super Technologies, Inc. and DIDXchange (News - Alert), in a statement.

“Adding the Skype module to IP communications-related solutions and services for origination (direct inward dialing or in every day language for incoming calls) changes everything. Now, scores of end-users who use Skype will be able to easily buy phone numbers from 70 or more nations and 10s of 1000s of cities worldwide, not currently available on the Skype service itself. “Our advice to individuals and organizations who want to use this new empowering tool is they should ask their service provider if they are an active member of DIDX.net, to take advantage," Iqbal added.

The companies and entrepreneurs that will gain from phone numbers’ ability to ring to Skype include mobile applications providers, virtual office suppliers and even incumbent telecoms with a softswitch.No other online wholesale marketplace currently offers SIP/IAX2 DID VoIP phone numbers in more than 70 countries with an option to ring to Skype, officials said.

DIDX.net currently offers phone numbers from its seller members in the following countries:

D.R., Jamaica, USA, Canada, Russia, S. Africa, Greece, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Austria, UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Germany, Peru, Mexico, Cuba, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, Malaysia, Christmas Island, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, S. Korea, Vietnam, China, Turkey, Niger, Togo, Sierra Leone, Dem. Rep. of Congo, Guinea-Bissau, Seychelles Island, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Luxembourg, Ireland, Iceland, Albania, Finland, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovak Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Antarctica, Nauru, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, N. Korea, Hong Kong, Israel, Bahrain and Georgia.

The Skype option is still in beta and will be complimentary to all active DIDX members for a limited time. Entities not currently members of the DIDX who want to access this feature can sign up on DIDX.net to complete the interop test and buyer agreement.

Interested parties can visit the DIDXchange for a complete understanding of the marketplace as it offers an extensive knowledgebase, which can be accessed at kb.didx.net. Visitors will also find an array of demonstration videos at didx.net/videos and on DIDX YouTube (News - Alert) channels.

"We are really proud of the companies and individuals who are members of DIDXchange. They are truly a gathering of some of the brightest minds in IP communications. Offering the new ‘ring-to’ Skype option is another way to show our appreciation. We have more surprises for 2010, too," Rehan Allahwala, inventor of the DIDXchange concept and CEO as well as co-founder of Super Technologies, Inc. and DIDX.

In other DIDX news, Super Technologies vice president Susan Bowen recently participated in a blog conversation titled, "Intelligent Things You Can Do with Phone Calls or Numbers?"

"We need more mobile operators joining www.didx.net so that some of the coolest services in the world can leverage DIDs that can SMS in and out. These DIDX members have the technology to enable SMS over Internet... just need the DIDs,” Bowen noted.
