Truly Wireless has partnered with Bandwidth to offer business users managed calls on their smartphones, moving away from the company’s previous cloud-based communications provider to now integrate with Bandwidth’s network and platforms. Truly Wireless provides a voice platform that is specifically built for a 3G/4G wireless network, enabling business-grade communications services on any smartphone with a cellular connection. Bandwidth owns an all-IP voice network and it has partnered with others including Google, Skype, and Republic Wireless to offer communications features and services.
Enterprises using Truly Wireless can download an app onto any iOS or Android device, sign in with their business account and use the native business-centric calling features. The Truly Wireless team selected Bandwidth to provide core voice technology based on a tested success rate close to 100%, along with Bandwidth’s direct-to-carrier APIs. Truly Wireless offers four tiers of services, with different feature packages starting at $9.00 per user per month.
Commenting in a statement, Erol Toker, CEO and Founder, Truly Wireless said, “As an enterprise product, our customers rank call quality and reliability as their most important criteria for choosing their voice provider. Bandwidth is uniquely positioned to offer this level of access.”
