What is an Automatic Failover?
If you're concerned with what would happen to your calls if a failure prevented traffic from being routed to your usual inbound call routes, you may set up an Automatic Failover via the Bandwidth Dashboard API using the Final Destination URI attribute.
Bandwidth offers two solutions for this: you can set up an Automatic Failover either on a Location or on a specific phone number. Click here for API instructions on how to do that.
How does it work?
On a Location, you can add in 10 Origination hosts (IPs or DNS hosts). When you add the Final Destination URI attribute to a Location, you're essentially setting a phone number into the FINAL route. So, if all PBX routes fail, you can still complete those calls by redirecting them to a cell phone or another line!
