Voxbone Network's International DID Numbers Extend Reach of Deutsche Telekom's Developer Garden

Developers Now Have Easy, Interoperable Numbers for Integration Into APIs

BRUSSELS, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Voxbone today announced it is providing international direct inward dial (DID) numbers to Deutsche Telekom (DT) for its Developer Garden, a recently relaunched portal and marketplace that enables developers to integrate DT services into their mobile and desktop applications and to buy and sell software components.

DT, whose Developer Garden site targets 17 million global developers, chose Voxbone because the company's VoxDID service enables major carriers such as DT to extend the reach of their telecommunications networks rapidly through Voxbone's convenient application programming interface (API) solution. Voxbone maintains a supply of geographic and national phone numbers for incoming communications from more than 50 countries and 4,000 cities.

The Developer Garden APIs offer developers access to DT's voice and data services. For example, developers can build speech-driven interactive voice response (IVR) and VoIP solutions, voice mash-ups and SMS applications with Telekom Tropo API, a cloud-based voice applications platform, or initiate conference calls with just a Web service call.

"Deutsche Telekom is always looking for the best ways to help the developer community to create innovative services and applications and to turn code into money," said Avner Mor, Vice President B2B2x Enabling of Deutsche Telekoms Digital Business Unit (DBU). "Voxbone's DID numbers enable us to increase the reach of developers' services, so they can develop better, more affordable tools and apps for smartphones, tablets and computers."

DIDs are particularly helpful for such companies as Voxeo Corporation, a DT partner that has created its Tropo API offering, which adds voice and SMS support to common programming languages.

"This announcement marks a trend in the telecom industry, in which mobile carriers are encouraging developers to create services and applications based on the cloud, their voice networks and Voxbone's inbound numbers," said Voxbone CEO Rod Ullens. "All Developer Garden app developers now have access to Voxbone's full range of DID numbers for any application they want to build, enabling them to create superior applications more quickly and for wider audiences."

At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
