Voxbone has been selected based on its experience with International numbering, but especially the iNum Initiative to manage and facilitate the United Nations +888 country code.
Similar to the iNum Initiative, the +888 country code was assigned by the ITU to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) to enable emergency communications networks, and will allow the UN to assign specific numbers to agencies providing humanitarian relief.
This new code will be an important part of the UN’s communications during future relief efforts. We now need the major fixed and mobile operators to provide affordable and ubiquitous routing to the UN +888 numbers as well as the Voxbone iNum range in +883. All iNum providers will be able to provide calling the UN +888 range.
