Voice and SMS-enabled virtual dedicated number (VDN)

Ensure your business contact details are consistent with a virtual dedicated number for both voice and SMS. SMSGlobal can provision voice-enabled virtual dedicated numbers to get you started with our voice features.

You'll need a VDN with voice capabilities before you can start utilising our voice software. You can opt for a virtual number for voice only. However, SMS and voice numbers are available on request.

Voice Call Forwarding feature

Call forwarding, also known as call diverting, allows you to automatically forward incoming calls to another line.

In MXT, you can set up call forwarding to divert calls. When someone calls your VDN, allocate the phone number you would like incoming calls to be redirected to. This is especially useful for team members or sales staff who use their personal phone to take work calls.

Instead of advertising their actual number for customers to call, you can use a VDN as the customer-facing Sender ID. With calls to the VDN instantly forwarded to the correct phone line.

How to set up Call Forwarding in MXT

In Virtual Numbers, divert calls by configuring a Forwarding Number and Timeout for your VDN.

The Forwarding Number refers to the phone number to route voice calls to when the virtual number is called. This can be your personal handset or business phone. Don't forget to include the country code prefix (e.g. +61 for Australia).

Timeout refers to the allocated time in which the call to the Forwarding Number will be terminated. For call tracking purposes, if the call reaches the Forwarding Number's voicemail before the Timeout period ends, the call is considered answered and terminated on the target number's voicemail.

Voice Call Bridging feature

Call bridging refers to dialling an outgoing call to a contact's destination number and then connecting it to your phone number, e.g. your business phone or personal handset. The caller ID will appear as the VDN used to bridge the call.

How to set up Call Bridging in MXT

Access your Contact List or Reports page. If you have eligible contact numbers to bridge calls with, there will be an additional phone icon allowing you to start a call bridge.

Click the call bridge button next to the destination number (Party B). You'll be prompted to input the number to take the call (Party A) and choose the VDN to bridge the call.

Our voice service will then call the input number (Party A). Once answered, the call will dial out to the destination number (Party B), bridging the call between the input number (Party A) and the destination number (Party B).

The caller ID presented to the destination number (Party B) will appear as the VDN, not the phone number chosen to take the call (Party A).

Party A


Party B

The phone number you input to take the call, e.g. your office number or personal number.

The selected online virtual dedicated number that is used to bridge the call.

The destination number is the contact you choose to bridge a call with.

  • Placed call information, including duration
  • Missed call information

Our latest voice system will continue to grow as we expand our range of offerings. Watch this space for more exciting voice developments!
