Setting up thinQ Voice Origination with Twilio’s Bring Your Own Number (BYON) Service
thinQ’s LCR for Twilio Voice allows businesses to improve call routing efficiency and control over a wide range of applications and calling solutions without affecting any functionality using Twilio’s REST platform. The following set of instructions will guide you through the process of configuring the Twilio and thinQ platforms for communication of voice origination services.
Step 1: Authenticating thinQ IPs with TwilioIn order to send traffic to a Twilio SIP domain, that traffic must be first authenticated with an IP whitelist or a username and password. To create an IP whitelist, go to here. Give it a friendly name that will help you remember the IP group and then add in the following thinQ IPs: thinQ IPs
Step 2: Creating Twilio SIP domainThe next step is to create a Twilio SIP domain—also commonly referred to as an “A Record.” This maps a domain name to the IP address (IPv4) of the computer hosting the domain. To create an A Record:
- Go here and pick a domain name
- Add the IP ACL you created to the domain
- Hit “Save.”
