Verizon Partner Solutions is offering a new option for VoIP providers using SIP Gateway Services.
Under this program, Verizon SIP Gateway customers opting for OCN-based metered plans can get a reduced rate for calls from their end users to select Verizon Business local customer telephone numbers (those utilizing legacy MCI local switches).
SIP is an Internet-based signaling protocol used for creating, modifying and terminating sessions between two or more users on the Internet, including Internet telephone calls, multimedia distribution and multimedia conferences.
This is simply another way we’re making it easier for our wholesale customers to do business with us by listening to them and continually evolving our offerings to help them help their customers, said Tom Maguire, senior vice president of Verizon Partner Solutions.
Verizon’s SIP Gateway Services are available in three configurations: inbound complete, two-way local and two-way complete.
Inbound complete includes inbound local and long-distance calls with purchase options for wholesale customers; two-way local offers both inbound and outbound local calling, allowing quick expansion of assigned number information inventory; and two-way complete enables local and long-distance calling plans to take advantage of Verizon’s network.
