InfoStructure SIP Trunking
The Convergence of Voice and Data at a Reduced Expense
Why keep your expensive phone lines when you can replace them with low cost SIP trunks?
Most businesses need ways to cut costs and increase productivity. SIP trunking provides a direct connection between your organization and an internet telephony service provider. SIP trunking in telecom allows a business to increase collaboration and communication throughout the organization, with far lower fees than traditional telephony.
A big advantage with SIP trunking, is that it doesn’t require the hardware investment as traditional telephony. For example, traditional telephony such as a PBX telephone system requires physical circuits to be connected to a public switch network (PSTN). If you have multiple locations, each location needs to be connected to your PBX. In this case, you are likely paying for T1-PRI (Primary Rate Interface) for each location. Each T1-PRI provides a 23 channel capacity to handle incoming and outgoing calls. When you need more than a 23 channel capacity phone system, then you may require additional PRI circuits. Unfortunately, you add capacity in increments of 23 channels meaning you are paying for more bandwidth then what you might possibly need.
SIP trunks eliminate the need for hardware. With SIP trunking you receive telephone service, instant messages, Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) emergency calls, data, and video over the data network instead of a public switch network (PSTN). In addition, when you use SIP trunk you only pay for the bandwidth or the lines you use. The SIP trunk allows you to add capacity as needed, not in predetermined increments. This way you are not paying for more than you need. Another advantage of SIP trunking is that you save money on long distances calls!
It’s no wonder that digital trunks are becoming more mainstream, while analog trunks are disappearing. When choosing a phone system, consider a system that utilizes SIP trunking. Not only will you save money, but you can eliminate your PBX. Sip Trunking is here to give you a more simple way to telecommunicate.
