A growing number of organisations are migrating from ISDN to SIP trunking. SIP trunks involve connecting your organisation’s PBX to the outside world via an IP connection to a SIP provider’s network. With SIP trunks in place, your business can take advantage of the many benefits offered by a modern phone system.
With far more reliable and powerful broadband, EFM and GEA now available to businesses, the increasing use of SIP Trunks are a much more viable alternative to traditional lines and can provide your business with a more flexible and lower cost alternative to ISDN for inbound and outbound voice calls.
Compared to ISDN, SIP trunking offers much more flexibility with ability to support business relocations. When you move office, the numbers provided with ISDN are, in the main, geographically defined, unless you pay extra for non-geographic numbers. This can mean it is not always possible to take your business phone number with you.
With SIP trunks this no longer becomes a problem. You can choose to use the same number, regardless of a site’s location, enabling seamless routing of geographic and non-geographic numbers. This can be very beneficial for businesses with multiple sites. And because SIP trunks are virtual rather than physical, scaling and maintenance are much easier.
While old trunks require expensive installation of circuits and termination points, with SIP Trunks there is no expensive equipment or engineer call outs needed to set it up. It’s quick to install and provision and, as standard, can be easily adjusted with a change to the software configuration.
With SIP trunks, your phone system can grow as your business does. Increasing the number of lines you require need no longer be a long process as you can add extra trunks instantly, with the ability to increase the capacity to call out and receive calls simultaneously.
SIP can deliver enterprise-grade voice services over your data connectivity, providing a gateway to creating an IP-based UC system that brings together voice, data, Instant Messaging, presence, and application sharing.
