Voxbone is to supply Phone.com, a hosted IP PBX provider for small businesses, with international DID (direct-inward-dial) numbers.

The deal allows Phone.com users in the US to select telephone numbers in foreign countries that when dialled will ring to their Phone.com Virtual Office.

An automated receptionist then asks for the called person’s extension number and completes the call.

Such calls are local to the caller. Voxbone carries them over its managed IP network to Phone.com, which routes them to its end customer.

Phone.com customers pay a flat monthly rate for each DID. The numbers can also be directed to ring home phones or cell phones, and to change routing by time-of-day rules.

DIDs can be ordered for all included cities and countries through Phone.com’s self-service web site.

Ari Rabban, CEO of Phone.com, said theVirtual Office enabled small business customers to look big by running big-company voice applications like automated attendant and conferencing.

Voxbone leases international DID numbers and toll-free numbers via VoIP to organizations in North and South America, Europe and Asia/Pacific regions.
