Your IP Infrastructure Company
With the vast array of options available for your business phone system, choosing the best combination of service to suit your particular business needs can be a challenge. You need a business phone system provider that is qualified to assess your unique requirements and recommend the ideal solution for your business—a partner with the knowledge and expertise to create an effective communications environment that will enable your employees to seamlessly collaborate.
Activo provides a range of voice solutions including SIP trunking, PRI services, and analog trunks. We can provide on-premise or hosted solutions and provide end-to-end lifecycle support, from design through to installation and ongoing support
SIP trunking is a protocol that sets up sessions of multimedia communications (both audio and visual) between endpoints via a wireless connection or a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This can replace multiple PRI connections with a flexible system that helps enable IP telephony solutions like VoIP.
Activo provides business-grade SIP trunking for businesses and organizations from coast to coast. We have a physical presence in TOR 1, Canada’s largest data centre, and use network-to-network interfaces (NNIs) in order to ensure your voice lines are supported by the carrier capable of providing the highest quality services, fastest speeds, and cost-effective solutions.
In addition to SIP trunking, Activo also provides the following voice lines:
A PRI (Primary Rate Interface) is a telecommunications interface that is used to carry up to 23 channels of voice, data, video, and other traffic.
Analog voice lines are able to carry and transmit voice and fax signals. Though they don’t tend to require significant upfront investment, they are also the least scalable and versatile.
DID allows a company to assign personal numbers to individual employees without needing a wholly separate phone line, making it easier to manage telephony traffic.
Depending on your needs, Activo can provide North America-wide long distance for analog, PRI, and SIP trunking voice services.
The two main benefits associated with SIP trunking are the ability to burst dynamically and seamlessly handle the increased load if you go over.

This varies on a case-by-case basis, but many modern phones are compatible with SIP trunking and other IP telephony solutions.
You can have a VoIP phone system without employing SIP trunking, however to take full advantage of VoIP’s capabilities (particularly multimedia communications), SIP trunking is crucial.
It can, however we recommend using dedicated bandwidth (preferably a Layer 2 connection) to ensure quality of service.
Quality of Service (QoS) is the ability to deliver improved service to select traffic transmitted over your networks, the ultimate goal being to provide dedicated bandwidth [Link to bandwidth page]and control over jitter and latency.
QoS is vital for voice communications. If voice packets are delayed, interrupted, or dropped when networks become busy and clogged with traffic, that negatively impacts call quality and makes conversations choppy. A QoS helps to minimise packet loss and maintain standards even during the busiest network periods.
We build your network, putting the necessary hardware, software, network, and controls in place to make systems work harmoniously together.
The Age of the Information Society is turning disparate platforms into interconnected, interoperable, and smart networks. We work with you to ensure you are able to take full advantage of emerging trends.
Our highly trained and certified technicians monitor, maintain, and enhance your networking infrastructures throughout their lifecycles—saving you time and money while minimizing risk.
