Detailed description

Integrate your global telecommunications

Managing your national and international voice services can be a juggling act. Multiple service providers. International calling across numerous tariffs. Several contracts and bills. Separate networks for different offices. Isn’t it hard to keep your eye on the ball?

Business Voice VoicePort makes global telephony simple. It provides you with a cost-effective way to communicate securely across multiple sites, integrating all your global voice traffic under a single service and contract.

Our end-to-end voice service has been specifically developed to cater for the different needs of your various offices. So with BT, flexible pricing options can be applied to each of your sites, enabling greater control over your budget. Flat-rate pricing is also available to drastically reduce your telecommunications costs. Plus, delivery through one supplier means simplified administration with billing and contracting becoming easier than ever before.

Business Voice VoicePort offers you full VPN functionality, carrying voice and data securely over a public network, connecting your locations with extensive global coverage. This means investment in expensive wide area networks (WANs) and a variety of providers is no longer necessary.

Best of all, Business Voice VoicePort is fully owned, managed and maintained by BT, ensuring that you experience high standards of quality and performance – all with one convenient point of contact.

Technical specifications

Dialling plans

Business Voice VoicePort enables you to connect your premises using either private dialling plans or public dialling plans, conforming to ITU E.164. You can decide the format used for delivering your calls to directly connected premises or to public switched telephone network (PSTN) destinations. For extra convenience and flexibility, your private dial plans are supported for fixed 2-to-15 digit lengths.

Forced on-net calling (FON)

With FON, your call is sent over the BT network to its destination, regardless of whether a public or private number is dialled. If a destination number is dialled in a PSTN format (DDD/IDDD) to a location served by a direct access connection, BT forces the call to terminate over the Business Voice VoicePort service rather than via PSTN.

Virtual on-net calling (VON)

With VON, frequently dialled PSTN numbers can be built into your private dial plan, saving you money. This also enables you to dial a simple 2-to-15 digit private number, instead of the full IDDD number.
