Bring Your Own Carrier (BYOC)

BYOC (Bring Your Own Carrier) refers to programs that give you the ability to choose a carrier that best fits your business needs, and in turn, plug them into your unified communications or contact center platforms.

The primary driver behind the growing demand for BYOC programs is the migration from on-prem telecom to cloud-based deployments. By moving away from on-prem and converting traffic to SIP, you will gain more flexibility, scalability, and control over your telephony solutions.

With flexible, cloud-native communications platforms, such as those available from Bandwidth, there’s no reason for enterprises to tie themselves to legacy telecom carriers that limit their options.

How is Bandwidth Involved with BYOC?

Bandwidth owns and operates one of the largest all-IP voice networks in the nation. On top of that network, we have built a full suite of APIs to give our customers the power to communicate, and now, the power of choice. Today, you can choose Bandwidth as your carrier of choice and we’ll give you the APIs you need to make your business thrive.

Since Bandwidth is a true cloud native carrier, our solution works in both a hybrid environment as well as a full cloud deployment.
