News : Voxbone Enables 8x8 to Enable Emergency Calls
San Francisco, CA, Feb 10, 2015 -- Voxbone announces that it has been selected by 8x8 Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), a cloud PBX provider, to enable emergency calling for 8x8’s customers in Europe. It is a regulatory obligation for all providers of telecommunications services in the European Union to offer end-users the ability to dial 112. Voxbone’s cloud 112/911 solution for VoIP providers, VoxOUT, now allows 8x8 to meet this requirement in 13 European countries. As a result, its customers no longer need to keep a PSTN line just to make calls to emergency numbers.
Mehdi Salour, Senior Vice President of Network Operations and Support at 8x8 states, "This was an easy decision for us, as VoxOUT offers emergency calling ‘as a service’ and works in the same, simple way for all 13 countries. Furthermore, we no longer need to make any additional investment in each market to establish 112 services with the local providers."
