Peerless Network: What Is SIP Trunking?
The ‘SIP’ in SIP Trunking stands for Session Initiation Protocol and it is the standard communications protocol for voice and video in a Unified Communications (UC) solution across a data network. SIP can be used to send and receive local and long-distance phone calls, text messages, and emails; browse the internet; and conduct video chats.
A “trunk” is a line or link that carries signals and connects nodes in a communications system to transport data across locations.
Put it all together and you get SIP Trunking – the method of sending voice and other communications over the internet through an IP-enabled private branch exchange (PBX). A PBX is a telephone system at a business that switches voice calls between users on local lines while allowing them to share the use of external phone lines.
Benefits of SIP Trunking
- Centralized Network: SIP Trunking enables one centralized network for voice and data services, which means no physical infrastructure, maintenance, or hardware costs or headaches.
- Greater Flexibility: Connecting directly to the internet telephony service provider of your choice, removes subscription fees and flexibility in scaling your bandwidth needs.
- Local call charges: A SIP Trunking service makes every call a local call over the internet, avoiding the costs of international or long-distance calls.
- Scalability: SIP trunking is flexible and easily scalable. There is an unlimited number of channels per trunk and no physical installation. New channels can be added and activated quickly. The amount of concurrent calls your business tends to make will most likely determine the number of channels you need.
- Cost Savings: The most significant benefit of using SIP trunking as your business phone system is the significant cost savings. SIP Trunking eliminates the need of long-distance calling.
