Voxbone, the Brussels-based company working since 2008 to develop iNum (an area code for IP Communications within the +883 global country code created by the International Telecommunication Union), reported solid year-on-year revenue growth Tuesday and indicated the telecommunications market continues to see increased demand for VoIP-centered innovations among global carriers and both mobile and fixed network operators.
The company reported revenues 38 percent higher than in FY2009, while minutes of use for inbound traffic on its network grew to 2.1 billion, up 40 percent.
“Last year was another very solid year for Voxbone,” said Voxbone CEO Rod Ullens. “We continue to attract customers steadily as we increase the breadth and geographic range of our services,” which include wholesale geographical and toll-free numbers for inbound calls, in addition to the company’s iNum initiative. “Results of a customer-satisfaction survey were personally rewarding,” Ullens said, explaining his optimism for the growth trajectory the company expects to see in 2011.
Hugh Goldstein, Voxbone’s Director of iNum Business Development recently shared plans for 2011 with the VoIP Users Conference and explained in a recorded podcast how VoIP users can leverage and support the iNum initiative. iNum supports voice, SMS and advanced multi-media services through a growing list of worldwide carriers, leveraging Voxbone’s private, carrier-grade IP networks’ ability to converge voice and data.
Among the milestones mentioned by Ullens in the earnings report were adoption of iNum and call routing support by British Telecom, Belgacom and Verizon Europe and 53% growth in Voxbone’s number of full-time staff.
