Technology

This also works the other way around, this makes it possible for users to call WebRTC users using their regular SIP-based numbers.

In August 2018, Plivo announced the launch of PHLO, a drag-and-drop based workflow builder which it claimed would make it possible to create working communication functionalities in minutes.
