With a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunk system, companies can instantly reduce communication costs by up to 40% in comparison to a traditional communication plan. By combining data and voice traffic onto one network using existing bandwidth to its maximum potential voice quality is able to maintain its integrity.
A SIP Trunk is a service that allows companies with an installed PBX to connect their traditional Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) system to the outside world over IP. Once installed your company will start to see immediate savings results in operation costs and within six months most companies see a positive return on investments (ROI). The ROI will depend mostly on how much money is initially invested on hardware, although a company can usually use their existing systems.
SIP Trunks have lower installation fees than traditional analog or Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) circuits and maintain comparable voice quality. Long distance charges associated with SIP Trunks are typically cheaper than in analog or fixed circuits. They are also because workers are able to communicate internally or externally with clients or other workers all over the city, country, or the world with their existing broadband connection. With SIP Trunk lines, long distance calls can be carried out for the cost of a local call.
Compulsory Elements of a SIP Trunk
There are three crucial elements that cooperate in a working SIP Trunk. An IP Private Business exchange and/or Personal Business exchange (IP-PBX) is essential and must have an interface to accommodate SIP connectivity. A traditional PBX can be used if it is connected to an IP device. The IP-PBX connects to the ITSP by means of an enterprise border element, which is the backbone or main line of the system. The ITSP enables a connection with the PSTN to allow for communication between the network line and another telephone.
