DIDXchange Company Membership Rankings Now Available

By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor


Super Technologies (News - Alert), the company behind the DIDXchange, has announced the release of its wholesale carrier and VoIP company membership ranking. The highlight of this release is that most new memberships in the exchange appear to be in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. 

"In many areas of Asia, Middle East, Africa and Latin America , we have new and strong carriers selling direct inward dialing phone numbers as well as some of the most exciting VoIP startups buying,” said Muneeb Iqbal, VP of Sales, Super Technologies, Inc. and DIDX, in a statement.

“We researched the top 10 buyer members in regards to their IP communications market reach niche-wise and geographically speaking, as well as DID volume and purchase volume. We note this group is dominated by consumer VoIP solutions, private label programs, ISPs, an IPTV (News - Alert) provider, IP PBX providers, and one of the world's most powerful organizations. The top sellers are CLECs, incumbents, paging service providers, and mobile operators."

It could easily be argued that in-house statistics such as these are indicative of the changes in service models in emerging and developed areas in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. Both providers and operators are competing on a national level and in some cases, globally. This creates a much different dynamic than what existed when the competition reached only within the region.

One obvious trend in the market is that many of the next-generation services are being purchased like “hotcakes” by tycoons and magnates in Russia, China and India. This is creating more competition and pushing for more innovation and less tradition among all companies.

Of the top 40 buyers on DIDX, 13 have headquarters within the U.S., but also operate remote offices and call centers in other parts of the world. A minimum of 20 percent of these have some sort of focus on mobile services and capabilities, including Apple (News - Alert), Symbian, Android or RIM. According to Infonetics Research, these companies are aiming to capitalize on the trend of businesses moving more employees to only mobile devices.

"The churn rate among 17,000 + wholesale level entrepreneurs and companies using DIDX to buy and/or sell direct inward dialing VoIP phone numbers is practically non-existent at on average less than 2 %. Current members also tend to refer other members,” added Suzanne Bowen, Vice President of Marketing, Super Technologies, Inc. and DIDX.

“For example, USA CLECs, who normally use DIDX to sell domestic USA DID, refer their wholesale clients to use DIDX for international DID phone number needs. We have also started increasing our complimentary marketing efforts to showcase successful DIDX members on audio podcasts to iTunes, video interviews, and in our new online magazine Techistan."

In other Super Technologies and DIDXchange (News - Alert) news, the company announced earlier this week that it offers wholesale IP communications –related solutions that enable ring-to Skype. The organization buys phone numbers from wholesale telecom providers all over the world and resells the numbers to other providers who have the option to allow their end-users to make the phone numbers ring-to Skype (News - Alert), as well SIP or PSTN.
