Telnyx’s SIP trunking offering allows customers to buy their telecommunications services a la carte, and to scale services up and down on demand, so that they pay only for what they use. Telnyx offers a feature set that is at full feature parity with a traditional offering, providing not only termination and toll-free and geographic DIDs, but also CNAM, e911, LIBD listings, and more.
