Zoom Phone Provider Exchange Available

The head of Zoom’s Strategic Business Development Ryan Perry has written a blog that focuses on migrating to a cloud phone system and how doing so can benefit any organization by providing access to up-to-date features, supporting remote and hybrid teams, scaling to meet business needs, and reducing the cost of ownership of the communications platform.

Cloud phone systems still require connectivity to a PSTN network to make calls outside of a business. For companies with multiple sites in different geographies, this can be challenging, as it requires the ability to pick the right connectivity option and provision callers, Perry wrote.

He added, that while Zoom Phone offers pre-packaged service plans globally, customers with more complex calling plans, coverage and managed services can turn to Zoom’s partner network to help address their needs.

“Our Provider Exchange Program, unveiled at our Zoomtopia 2021 partner event, helps businesses simplify the cloud peering process and more easily connect with network providers within the Zoom ecosystem,” Perry wrote.

He explained that as an enhancement to its Bring Your Own Carrier (BYOC) Cloud Peering Partner Program, Zoom Phone Provider Exchange enables service provider partners to provide a flexible solution for customers worldwide looking to communicate effectively and efficiently.

Using the Zoom Phone Provider Exchange is easy. From the Provider Exchange page within the Zoom Phone admin portal, customers can browse and select the provider and country of their choice. From there, they can provision phone numbers over an authorized connection, without having to establish a separate relationship with another provider.

The Zoom Phone Provider Exchange is available in more than 70 countries. Here’s the complete list of available geographies.
