We’re excited to announce that Twilio Interconnect now supports Twilio Client, letting you to use private network connections to Twilio for WebRTC calls. A private connection protects your calls with network-level security, and can guarantee quality end to end. To get started with Interconnect, tell us how you’d like to connect.
Twilio’s Client allows you to embed voice into your mobile or web based enterprise software such as a CRM. From Call Centers to Hosted PBX, your users can communicate from within their browser, using the web interface they’re already familiar with. However, some businesses haven’t been able to adopt client because of policies that limit voice traffic from traversing the Internet. With Twilio Interconnect you get a direct enterprise-grade network link from your premises to Twilio.
Ways To Connect To Twilio
There are a few Network Peering connection options available from our Ashburn, VA and San Jose, CA Interconnect exchanges. Deciding which one is right for you will depend on where you and your customers are located and what data networks you’re connected to:
Cross-Connect: Connect over a physical high speed connection directly to Twilio. The connection is dedicated exclusively to your traffic and provides extremely low latency.
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS): Enables you to connect to Twilio over your existing private MPLS network, where you can manage packet prioritization for better call quality of service.
