Session Internet Protocol (or SIP) Trunking is one of the most adaptable telecommunications tools on the market. SIP Trunking uses Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to make and receive calls. Before your business leaps into SIP, you need to first understand the fundamentals of SIP Trunking.
SIP Trunking Basics
SIP Trunking makes phone calls via the Internet rather than a landline, and it can handle a large amount of calls with ease. Furthermore, each user is still permitted their own direct inward dialing (DID) line.
SIP Trunking is Reliable
One of the biggest concerns customers have with SIP or VoIP is using the internet for the entirety of their telecommunications. However, SIP Trunking has built-in contingencies. If there is a power outage, your SIP calls are redirected to a different office, a landline, or a mobile phone. You also have the option of installing a redundant internet solution in the event of an outage.
SIP Trunking is Easily Scalable
One of the biggest advantages of SIP Trunking is that you purchase Trunks individually, meaning that you only buy what you need. Additionally, you can add more Trunks as your business grows. If required, you can also have more DID lines than SIP Trunks. For many growing businesses, this scalability is ideal.
SIP Trunking is Affordable
Affordability is another benefit to SIP. Because the calls you make are done via the Internet rather than a traditional landline, you save money on hardware and long-distance charges. Furthermore, as mentioned above, you only pay for what you need because you pay by the Trunk.
