When an end user dials 933, it will play back the TN and address that is provisioned in the dashboard. This service is used as part of the 911 testing performed during the onboarding process, prior to the live 911 calls, and is used primarily to test connectivity to the emergency IPs for 911 service. Secondarily, it tests to make sure the provisioned address is being broadcast.<\/p>\n<!-- \/wp:paragraph -->\n\n<!-- wp:paragraph -->\n<p>As with any text-to-speech service, there may be parts that are not appropriately recognized and therefore, skipped in the playback. The point to using the 933 service is to verify that calls are reaching the SBCs and some resemblance of the address provided in the dashboard is being represented. For example, if the 911 address entered is \u201c123 N Main St, Ste 400, Denver Colorado 80205\u201d, the 933 service would likely read back \u201c123 Main, Denver Colorado 80205\u201d. This would be considered a successful call. If it read back something entirely different, such as \u201c2963 Stormy Ave, El Paso TX\u201d, this would indicate a problem either with the 933 service or with the address in the dashboard.<\/p>\n<!-- \/wp:paragraph -->\n\n<!-- wp:paragraph -->\n<p>The 933 service may be used anytime (please limit calls to 1 call per minute), however, it is a courtesy service and is not meant to be used as a fully functional address verification service. To verify a full address, it is best to check the provisioned address in the dashboard directly (or via API call).<\/p>\n<!-- \/wp:paragraph -->\n\n<!-- wp:heading -->\n<h2 class=\"wp-block-heading\">What are the benefits of Bandwidth\u2019s text-to-speech services?<\/h2>\n<!-- \/wp:heading -->\n\n<!-- wp:paragraph -->\n<p>Since Bandwidth owns and operates one of the largest All-IP Voice Networks in the nation.

Traditionally, nationwide telephony infrastructure is what we call the <a href=\"\/glossary\/public-switched-telephone-network-pstn\/\">PSTN (Public Switch Telephone Network)<\/a> and connects voice communication using a circuit-switched network topology. Take yourself back to the days of operators sitting in front of large panels of open ports, operating a switchboard to connect two phone lines together by physically plugging them into one another; this is a circuit-switched network. In modern times, those operators have been replaced with complex computerized switches; but, in essence, they do the same work.<\/p>\n<!-- \/wp:paragraph -->\n\n<!-- wp:paragraph -->\n<p>An All-IP Voice Network uses a packet-switched network topology. This means every component of a phone call is broken into tiny chunks called packets, and each packet can be routed on its own, seeking out its destination over a multitude of redundant connections and paths to be reconstructed on the other side. This allows greater optimization of the networks deployed to serve voice communications, allowing for less overall deployed equipment and more options for redundancy and reliability.<\/p>\n<!-- \/wp:paragraph -->\n\n<!-- wp:heading -->\n<h2 class=\"wp-block-heading\">What are the benefits of Bandwidth\u2019s all-IP voice network<\/h2>\n<!-- \/wp:heading -->\n\n<!-- wp:paragraph -->\n<p>In addition to the infrastructure benefits of an All-IP Voice Network, it also allows us to use cutting-edge technologies to expose more control and capability to users leveraging Bandwidth\u2019s IP voice network for VoIP services.
