Plivo Announces International Phone Numbers in 50 Countries Across Europe, South America, Africa, and Asia
- 13 Aug 2012
Today, we’re launching Plivo internationally by providing local phone numbers in more than 50 countries within a month of announcing our launch in the US. We’ve also beefed up our multilingual text-to-speechfeature to support the additional languages in those 50 countries. We’re moving fast toward our goal of helping all businesses move to the telephony cloud without worrying about infrastructure or scaling issues.
The highlights of this launch include:
- Local phone numbers in 50+ countries
- Inbound/outbound voice service in all of those countries
- The ability to receive voice and SMS on the same number in the US, UK, and Canada
To set up a phone solution with voice or SMS in many of the countries we now provide services in, businesses would have to negotiate contracts with carriers, spend time and money procuring hardware, and hire experts to configure and maintain the systems. With Plivo, businesses no longer need to go through these hassles. They can move to an inexpensive, reliable, and scalable cloud platform instead.
Plivo is an enabler for businesses that were built on hardware telephony infrastructure. Hardware is expensive to set up and maintain, and it’s not easy to scale. Plivo helps businesses integrate their SIP devices with the cloud so that they can get rid of their on-premises PBX setups.
Here’s the list of the countries where Plivo now provides local numbers:
