What is a Virtual Landline Number?

A virtual phone number is a telephone number that is not dependent on a physical phone line or device, or specific location. Virtual numbers are Internet-based and can make and receive calls from any communication device with an IP address, including personal cell phones, computers, and softphones in business offices. Virtual numbers are typically used to route calls between traditional phone lines (PSTN) and VoIP using direct inward dialing (DID) technology.

A virtual phone number keeps you connected and reachable irrespective of whether you’re in the office, working from home, or traveling across the globe.
