SIP Trunking is the New Generation of Call Delivery to your PBX
SIP trunks permits your SIP PBX to utilize an internet connection for access to Direct Inward Dial (DID) or Direct Outward Dial (DOD) services. SIP Trunking and SIP Phones are offered by many telecommunications providers, as well as many Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSP).
SIP trunks are simply accessed through the internet connection that your company uses to access the World Wide Web. SIP trunks are also far more efficient than traditional transports like CO trunks, Channelized T-1s or ISDN PRIs, because they do not require the catacomb of physical wires that were once necessary to deliver these services. Most businesses are attracted to the price of SIP. On average, SIP is 50% less than similar ISDN pricing, and 20% less the price of equivalent analog services. So SIP, SIP PBX, and SIP Phones make an immediate impact on the bottom line.
SIP also offers amazing disaster recovery possibilities. Because SIP is not limited to an installed circuit, they can be activated on ANY internet connection. For instance, if your facility was affected by a widespread power outage, your SIP PBX could be moved to another location that has power and internet access. Immediately the system would be functional, with the same phone numbers that were present at the blackout site. This provides the ultimate in flexibility and redundancy.
Finally, SIP allows for an easy way to create “virtual presences” from a marketing perspective. Our telecommunications providers offer telephone numbers from different cities and states, which can all be provisioned through the same SIP interface. Setting up a business in a new state is as easy as a few clicks and suddenly you’re placing and receiving calls, from 5 states away, using a SIP PBX and SIP Phones, with no premium call forwarding charges or additional usage charges.
