Iristel, a global telecommunications services company, has announced its expansion into Kenya.
Company CEO Samer Bishay (@SBishayIRIS), declares: “Today is an exciting day as we are pleased to bring Kenya businesses carrier-grade communication solutions. We will begin with our best-in-class wholesale services and expand our product offering in the coming months.”
This development gives Iristel a presence on the continent of Africa as the company seeks to grow its diverse portfolio of communications solutions into new emerging markets.
For the first phase of its worldwide growth, Iristel will offer the possibility to acquire SIP trunks, which can be combined with its OnNet footprint, as well as decentralized identifiers (DIDs).
In addition, Iristel's voice service offers comprehensive, facility-based local telephone number coverage as well as inbound voice origination service, enabling OTT and voice service providers to offer innovative voice and messaging (SMS) services to their business or consumer end users.
All calls to Iristel-managed phone numbers are collected and routed to either a single or many customer IP addresses via this wholesale service. Iristel customers use this service to provide next-generation primary line phone services to consumers, to replace current toll-free lines with more cost-effective local numbers — providing a local touch — or to build new mobile or OTT-based consumer apps. Iristel's voice service is distinctive in that it offers service providers near-ubiquitous local service reach, network scale and cost-effectiveness.
