In the world of web based VoIP solutions a company like Twilio must find a good carrier for their customers. They have found that Twilio uses their own hardware to connect with other users so there is no need to use any third party equipment for this purpose. In this article we will look at how Twilio integration with web phones works and why the company has chosen to use this method instead of using cellular phones.
Twilio’s web site is not anything more than an informative portal which displays various products and services related to VoIP, web sites and phones. Visitors to the site can register to receive messages and calls directly from Twilio as well as access to web sites and check out information about various products and service offerings. The Twilio system also allows the customer to use a unique URL which links them back to the actual Twilio system so that the web based business does not have to pay additional charges for the use of this URL. The customer simply uses the Twilio web site as they would a normal Internet site and make any phone calls as if they were using a normal telephone. Once the calling has begun the customer can terminate the call at any time through the web site interface.
There are currently a few different ways that Twilio integrates with web-based phones and these include Twilio Java and Twilio Flash. These technologies enable the phones to display HTML text via web content and use Java and Flash programs to display multimedia. The advantage to the web based system is that anyone with an Internet connection can access it and anyone can use it to make and receive calls. It makes it extremely simple for businesses that use multiple VoIP phones to communicate with their customers.
To be able to use Twilio Java and Flash, it is necessary to have special software installed on the phones themselves. This software is designed and purchased by the Twilio company. Once the phones are activated and connected with the company’s service the customer can login to the web site and see the controls for their phones through the Web enabled interface. Once they have established a user name and password the phones will then accept calls to this number through the Twilio Java or Flash program. Once the call has been accepted through the phone number of the person using the service will be charged the same amount as the rate per minute.
To connect the Twilio Java and Flash application to a web site the person must first visit the Twilio home page and then click on “Create Your Account.” Once the account is created a new tab will appear with the numbers and letters displayed in the format TwiRTC Phone number, where the number represents the phone number and the RTC server is displayed. In order to connect the Twilio Web site to the web the user needs to type in the IP address of their computer as well as their hostname. When everything is complete, the person will then be able to visit their website and use all the features that it offers.
The Twilio RTC is a feature which allows clients of the company to place and receive calls at rates much like those that would be charged through normal telephone companies. It can be integrated with any company’s existing software or can be used entirely on its own. The company offers a variety of plans to choose from. The plans generally include unlimited local calls, three way calls between two numbers, conference calls, and premium long distance calls at rates far below the normal rates.
When choosing a plan, one should consider how many minutes of calls they would need to use the service for and the cost of the rates that apply to that use. The company offers a variety of packages, so that a client can find one that meets their needs. The package that is selected and signed up for will determine the calling plan that is used. Once the calls have begun the Twilio Web site will notify the person’s phone line of the new number being called. The calls are made using the same numbers that were used during the initial call.
The service is not available everywhere, nor is it offered in every cell phone plan that is available. Twilio is actually only offered in select parts of the country. One of the reasons for this is that the company is only able to get as much programming together as it can handle. Therefore, areas that do have the service need to be ready to receive it fairly quickly once it is made available. Those who have access to the service will love it, as it is a great way to keep in touch.
