Flowroute provides premium quality voice services specifically engineered and optimized for enterprises, developers, and service providers, starting at near wholesale rates. The innovative Flowroute platform was built by telecom experts to create cost efficiencies and give users total control of setup and features (account creation, adding phone numbers, establishing fraud protections and failover routing, etc.). By bypassing middlemen and providing direct access to the telephone network, Flowroute is able to deliver superior call audio quality that is far more reliable.
Flowroute offers a robust suite of voice services that is instantly customizable for business SIP trunking. The intuitive real-time interface gives users detailed control of account setup and feature management.
Outbound calling is easy to set up with just about any ATA or PBX system. And just for signing up you get a $0.25 credit (which equals about 25 minutes of calling anywhere in the US48) to test connection and audio quality. Once setup, you can protect your account by creating a whitelist of outbound allowed IP addresses so that if intruders do gain access to your equipment, they won’t be able to inflict much damage. Flowroute also reduces latency by routing all call audio directly between endpoints, rather than transiting the audio through their network. That way there are fewer transition points in your call, which means you get more reliable connections.
Inbound calls to your Flowroute account can be routed via SIP URI, host, or phone number. You can even direct toll-free calls to international numbers. If it’s phone numbers you need, Flowroute offers local numbers in over 9,000 rate centers across North America for a $1.25/mo. Adding or dropping numbers is easy and instant, no waiting for changes to take effect. And you can even transfer your existing numbers to your Flowroute account. There are two pricing options available. You can select to pay per minute for all incoming calls, which gives you the ability to receive an unlimited number of concurrent calls to any of your phone numbers. Or, you can build a bank of inbound channels that allow one call at a time each, but an unlimited number of minutes each month.
Flowroute supports T.38 fax protocol so you can maintain your existing fax machine without needing to keep your copper line connection. Flowroute’s T.38 support is known industry wide and praised by experts as some of the most reliable. To use it, all you have to do is enable T.38 on your equipment.
