What Is SIP Trunking?
Based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), SIP trunking is a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) which allows businesses to receive telephone services and unified communications from a single provider. This includes voice, video, desktop sharing, web conferencing and shared whiteboard services.
When you choose SIP trunking, you only need one connection for all your voice and data needs. Even better: SIP trunking plugs into your existing phone system, which keeps disruption to a minimum during your transition.
Here are some more advantages of deploying SIP trunks.
SIP trunking can cut costs by eliminating the need to install a dedicated voice circuit at all your sites. Instead of expensive dedicated voice circuits, SIP trunking can be run over your existing network, irrespective of how many sites you have. This means you will make the most of your data network and eliminate the need to invest in traditional voice services.
BT has announced that they will turn off the PSTN network in 2025. That means that, at some point before then, you will be required to move your landlines to a digital communications system. By making the transition now, you are effectively future-proofing your business.
And, by consolidating your voice and data traffic over one connection, you will significantly simplify network operations. Simpler network operations lead to lower running costs, additional efficiencies and easier maintenance.
You may be expecting your business to grow. Or you may be anticipating a reduction in incoming calls due to the seasonal nature of your business. With a traditional voice service, you will either have to add more lines or pay for unused lines even when you don’t need them.
SIP trunking allows you to scale up and down easily. Simply increase or decrease your bandwidth to add to or reduce the number of lines. Scalability is built into the heart of SIP trunking. That means, if you choose SIP trunking, your business will become inherently more flexible.
