Bandwidth Intros App Platform for Adding Voice to OTT Services
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Bandwidth, one of the nation’s leading communications technology companies, today announced that it is the first telecommunications provider to offer a direct-to-carrier cloud API platform for voice and messaging.
The Bandwidth App Platform is a cloud communications API platform that allows software companies to easily create voice calling and messaging products. The platform also allows easy API integration with essential carrier-powered services such as automated phone number porting APIs, better text messaging interoperability with short codes and E911 services.
Mobile and internet-based applications are changing the way we talk and message, as services such as Pinger and WhatsApp have risen from obscurity to billions of users worldwide. As these services have grown in popularity, they have been supplemental services – but not replacements – for traditional phone lines and wireless connections in North America.
