Connectivity for VoIP infrastructure, SIP Trunking provides the functionality you need to succeed in today’s market.
SIP trunk services provide a fully-featured, cost-effective, and proven voice communication solution for thousands of UK businesses.
Switching to SIP will save you money, and it’s not as complicated as you would imagine.
What is SIP Trunking?
SIP trunks serve as telephone lines that operate over broadband/internet connection. SIP stand for Session Initiation Protocol and replaces ISDN phone lines that link your business telephone system to the PSTN (Public Telephone Network).
Generally, ISDN line rental is more expensive and less flexible. Most calls to UK landlines are free with significant cost savings on calls to mobiles.
SIP call pricing is structured with no hidden costs.
Scale as you need
If your company is seasonal, SIP can be scaled-up to handle a higher number of concurrent calls and scaled-down during quieter times.
Businesses experiencing growth can increase capacity without waiting for an engineer’s visit.
Any phone number
Do you need a one-time campaign number, 0800 or a local number for specific location? SIP Trunking is cloud technology and there is no physical location so SIP trunking can manage all these requirements.
When moving office to a new location you can keep your existing numbers, by porting to your SIP.
Perfect for UC&C
Unified Communication integrates all forms of business communications across devices. The SIP protocol is capable of more than phone calls.
SIP trunking manages video, instant messaging, file sharing, and screen sharing across multiple end-points as well as voice calls. Including handsets, mobile devices, and computers. All designed to save time, simplify activities and reduce cost.
What do you do if your SIP trunk has something goes down? Because SIP services are delivered over the Internet, you can be up and working in alternate locations practically immediately. Employees may also receive and make calls from their mobile devices to providing extra resilience.
SIP and Bandwidth
SIP is a modern, convenient approach to business communication, but there is one main obstacle. Your business will need a fast and reliable internet connection.
G.722 codec is used for HD voice quality calls which requires 90 Kbps bandwidth to provide the best sound quality.
Converting to SIP Trunking
SIP trunking conversion from BT ISDN is straight forward, but not all PBX systems are SIP compliant. There are a number of Hybrid PBX solutions that can replace your current PBX where you can keep your existing handsets in place. Although, for the full UC&C experience it might be worth looking at a completely new system for the long term.
