We are happy to announce that currently video calls that go via Voximplant servers (not P2P ones) are billed per megabyte of video traffic. Since the resolution of a video stream can be different (so as fps, video codec and other params) it means that per minute billing was a bad idea for this case - 1 minute of video call generates different load on our infrastructure depending on various parameters. So now the formula for video call going via Voximplant servers looks as follows: SDK-platform / platform-SDK call - $0.002 per minute per call leg + $0.001 per megabyte of video traffic sent to the platform See http://voximplant.com/pricing/ for the details

Where CPaaS Deploy their Networks - a Comparison

Where CPaaS Deploy their Networks - a Comparison

A couple weeks ago, Amazon Web Services (AWS) experienced an outage in its US-EAST-1 region. As so many services rely on AWS, this outage had a broader impact, causing outages and various issues with Amazon’s own Ring services, online retailers, and even the New York City MTA. In addition, a couple major Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) providers also reported issues (Voximplant was not impacted), potentially impacting the communications of many of their customers.  With this in mind, now is a good time to look at how CPaaS offers leverage public cloud infrastructure and review the factors involved in providing reliable, high quality communications services. In this post we will review the public cloud infrastructure used by several major CPaaS vendors and discuss the implications of their choices.
