Once you're logged in to the Bandwidth Dashboard, the first thing you'll want to do to ensure success is to set up your initial Sub-Accounts and Locations. The instructions for that setup are provided below.
*Please note that both the Sub-Accounts (Sites) and Locations (Sip Peers) are not intended to grow in an unbounded manner. We do not recommend moving beyond 50 Sub-Accounts, or 250 total Locations. System responsiveness and/or network issues may result if these thresholds are exceeded.
You can think of Sub-Accounts, also known as Sites, as the Filing Cabinet of the Bandwidth Dashboard. Sub-Accounts contain a name that will appear in a list on the Home page on the Bandwidth Dashboard. You can organize your Sub-Accounts as end-user based, location-based, or most any other method preferred.
Each Sub-Account can have as many locations as needed. You can think of Locations, as the file folders in which your telephone numbers reside. Your Locations will house your Routing IP's for Origination, Flat Rate Termination and Messaging, if subscribed to this feature. Only 10 origination and termination IP addresses/DNS hosts may be provisioned for each single Location. Locations also allow provisioning for SMS hosts, if subscribed to this feature.
To begin your account setup perform the following steps:
|From the top Navigation menu, hover over 'Account' > 'Configuration' > 'Sub-accounts' and click 'Add a Sub-Account'|
|Fill in the required information, such as a name, address and address type in the form presented and click Submit.|
|Next, create your Location. From the top Navigation menu, hover over 'Account' > 'Configuration' > 'Locations' and click 'Add a Location'|
A description of the fields in the ‘Add a Location’ provisioning box are provided below:
|When you are finished, click ‘Submit’.|
Now that you’ve set up your Sub-Accounts, and added your first Location, we recommend that you order a telephone number from Bandwidth’s inventory to ensure that routing is working as intended.
