DIDx Virtual Phone Number HQ Home of Pensacola Graffiti Bridge

Where in the world is Pensacola, Florida? It's the home of not only DIDX wholesale phone number marketplace since 1999, but also sugar sand beaches, UFO sightings, Brownsville Assembly of God, the United States Navy's Blue Angels' team, hurricanes, Thursday Nights in Seville Square music events, a monthly Gallery Night, and the Graffiti Bridge.

The tradition is for artists and wannabe artists to start painting just after nightfall and then hang out until the sun rises to make sure no one paints over it before drivers get to view it. One theme that occurs regularly is that of love and friendship, no different than what we all decorated latrine doors as children. Nonprofit organizations decorate it to promote the work they do.



The world's best voice, text and other communications service providers who leverage DIDX direct inward dialing platform can even buy and resell to their users a phone number in the footprint of dozens of Florida cities today as well as millions from 65 nations. Even if the service provider's user does not live in the city associated with the phone number, i.e., 212 for Manhattan and 850 for Tallahassee. Ask your phone service provider if they are members of DIDx and get your virtual phone numbers to meet your business, family, academic and friendship life goals.

We're sharing two wonderful videos with the Pensacola Graffiti Bridge as subject, one on Youtube, and the other on Vimeo. Enjoy!

Part of DIDX Interop is DTMF Testing

DTMF...  inband or rfc2833 will be superb when testing interop with DIDX. For newbies to the term DTMF, it is dual-tone multi-frequency signaling over analog telephones. Touch-tone DTMF is the one for touch tone dialing phones.

Inband is when Dual-tone multi-frequency is transmitted within the audio of a telephone conversation. It is hearable to the two or more people who are having the conversation. Only uncompressed codecs like g711a or g711u can carry inband DTMF reliably. Inband is the only possible means to transmit DTMF for analog phone lines.

In more detail, when the incoming stream sends DTMF signals out-of-audio with either SIP-INFO or RFC-2833, independent of codecs, the DTMF signals are sent separately from the actual audio stream.

Find answers on how to resolve getting incorrect DTMF using DIDx.net.

DIDx Vendor Rating Enables VoIP DID Phone Number Buyers to Choose Wisely


The rating of DIDx sellers (also known as DIDx vendors) is assigned by DIDx admins. The decision is based on the quality of DIDs, whether the vendor is licensed to sell DIDs or not, the relationship between DIDx and the vendor and the pricing and number of DIDs made available for sale on DIDx.net platform.

Members of the DIDx marketplace sell DIDs to other members, buy DIDs from other members or sell and / or buy DIDs to and from other members.

The vendor rating can be increased by increasing the value of any facet mentioned in the first paragraph of this blog and also by the sharing of more data proof of the vendor's validity such as company tax returns, DUNS number, DUNS report, tax ID number, bank statements, and financial and vendor reference letters with reference contact info.

All this information shared by the potential DIDx vendor is kept private.

Again, vendors who make available more DID phone numbers that are of good quality for sale can see an increase in vendor rating.

Ratings:
Vendor Rating 1 Brand New or Not Recommended Vendors

Vendor Rating 2 Relatively Better than 1

Vendor Rating 3 Relatively Better than 2

Vendor Rating 4 Not Highly Recommended, average quality DID

Vendor Rating 5 Those rated 5 and above are regularly purchased from by the most popular, quality VoIP, wireless and telco companies in the industry.

Vendor Rating 6 Same as rating 5 but more DIDs are available and more company data proof of validity.

Vendor Rating 7 Same as rating 6 but even more highly recommended.

Vendor Rating 8 Tier 1 Carriers like Verizon, Global Crossing, Bezeq, Level 3, XO, BT

Vendor Rating 9 and 10 - These are for vendors, that we have purchased DIDs from for our internal usage, in which those vendors do not allow DIDx to re-sell the DIDs directly on DIDx platform.

VoIP Companies Add Customers By DIDx Local Number Porting



A VoIP company Phonage snags a booth at the Computer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to show off their new IP PBX, virtual phone numbers of USA and 61 other countries available, and an exemplar WebRTC service just rolled out. A potential business customer, a CEO of a pretty interesting start-up Froadie, approaches asking if it is possible to port phone numbers into Phonage service.

Phonage is a member of DIDx.net, a wholesale global phone number exchange where wholesale phone service and infrastructure providers buy and/or sell DID phone numbers. Phonage is able to check all 125 phone numbers that belong to Froadie, and yes, all can be ported into DIDx and now Phonage has a new, very cool customer that is growing fast, will need more international phone numbers soon after porting their original ones, and will make an awesome case study and white paper to showcase what Phonage can do.


Local number porting is enables users to keep their telephone numbers even if they switch from one communications service provider to another one. Before deregulation, switching to a new provider or moving to a new geographical area meant having to ditch one's current phone number or numbers and get new ones. Number portability entered the communications scene, making it a cinch for consumers to pick whomever they want practically for phone service and keep their same telephone number just by porting.

Wholesale communications service providers who use DIDx to sell and/or buy DID phone numbers have the joy of porting in phone numbers from many areas of France, USA, UK, Canada and Turkey which means getting new customers and retaining current ones! Happy local number portability to you.
