What are SIP Trunks?
SIP trunks is a type of technology that lets you make and receive phone calls over data, as opposed to through a regular phone line. If you’re wondering, SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol. If you’re already up to speed on what SIP trunks is, click here, for our installation services.
How can SIP trunks benefit my business?
Many businesses use a phone line, a phone system and an internet connection. SIP trunks eliminates the need for a phone line, therefore, saving your company money on line rental charges. With SIP trunks, phone calls are converted into “packets of data” and are sent through your data network. Fortunately, you’re able to continue using your existing phone system and handsets, so you shouldn’t experience any noticeable disruption.
Cost reduction is the main benefit to your business, however, there are several other benefits to switching to SIP trunks.
Upscaling is significantly cheaper with SIP trunks compared to ISDN, this means that more available phone lines can be added cheaper and more quickly. Bandwidth of the data network determines the number of SIP trunks. As these are virtual, you don’t need to any new hardware for the phone system.
Calls can be directed to back up sites or mobiles should a data network fail, creating a back-up circuit for ISDN channels is expensive and require a physical circuit to be installed.
ISDN provides limited productivity and unified communications; these are often only enabled by the phone system rather than the ISDN. SIP trunks can include call recording, call management and online portals.
