Introducing Test Phone Numbers And SIP Addresses Powered By The Twilio Lookup Scout Addon
Testing phone numbers and SIP addresses can be challenging without the right resources. That’s why we created testnumber.org, a website that provides a repository of phone numbers and addresses that anyone can call for testing purposes. The site not only tests basic connectivity but also provides valuable information about the caller, including the detected incoming calling number, SHAKEN/STIR attestation level, and whether the calling number is suspected of robocalling.
To make this possible, we used Twilio, a cloud communications platform that provides a suite of APIs and tools for building scalable and reliable applications. We also used Scout, a Twilio add-on that provides caller ID information for incoming calls.
Twilio Lookup Scout Addon
Scout is a Twilio Number Lookup Add-on that enables developers to retrieve information about incoming calls, including the name and location of the caller, as well as other relevant details. With Scout, you can verify the caller’s identity and take appropriate action based on the information you receive.
To use Scout on Twilio, you’ll need to add the Lookup Addon to your account. This addon provides additional data sources that Scout can use to retrieve valuable caller information, including location, carrier, port status, risk level, and much more.
Intelligent Call Flow
One of the most powerful features of Scout on Twilio is the ability to create an intelligent call flow. With an intelligent call flow, you can route incoming calls based on the caller’s detected attributes. For example, you can route calls from known customers to a specific agent or department, while routing calls from suspected robocallers to a voicemail or hang-up.
SHAKEN/STIR is a protocol used to verify the authenticity of caller ID information. It helps prevent robocalls and spoofed calls by providing a mechanism for verifying that the calling number is legitimate. Scout on Twilio supports SHAKEN/STIR, so you can retrieve the attestation level of incoming calls and take appropriate action based on the level of trust. testnumber.org can help in making sure your calls are reaching their destination with a high level of trust.
All Of This Can Easily Be Added And Customized For Your Own Inbound Numbers
testnumber.org provides a valuable resource for anyone looking to test phone numbers and SIP addresses. With the help of Twilio and Scout, we’ve created a site that not only tests basic connectivity but also provides valuable information about the caller, including the detected incoming calling number, SHAKEN/STIR attestation level, and whether the calling number is suspected of robocalling. We’ve also provided articles on how you can set up your own intelligent call flow using Scout on Twilio Lookup Addon. If you have any comments or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you!
