Introduction to didML?

didML is an acronym for Cebod Telecom Markup Language. didML defines a set of rules for encoding phone calls. You can use the programming language of your choice and by following instructions as laid by didML you can initiate and control Calls in real-time.

Here is how it works:-

  • Say you have configured 9998887777 to http://www.example.com/call.php

  • When someone calls 9998887777 Cebod Telecom will then.
