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.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
