What is SIP?
A SIP “trunk” is simply a virtual phone line that we provide to connect your phone system to our network, providing the same service as a traditional analogue line but with a host of benefits:
- Save money
IP connectivity costs less than ISDN with lower call costs, free internal calls between extensions and offices and lower line rental costs for multi-sites. No expensive call forwarding costs are required should you relocate or need to divert calls in the event of a disaster
- Business Continuity
If your office has to be temporarily relocated in an emergency, this can be achieved quickly and cost effectively with SIP trunking to keep your business working
SIP trunking provides a phone service that will cope with any situation and give you business-grade resilience for your telephony. Whether you need to keep your business running in a disaster or emergency or you need to load balance your calls between sites during peak hours – SIP trunking delivers!
- Line rationalisation
For businesses with multiple sites, SIP trunking provides the opportunity for line rationalisation and reduces the number of PBXs you need to maintain – while retaining full control of the numbers associated with your business
- Flexibility with phone numbers
SIP trunking enables you to move office and keep the same geographic number without any ongoing call-forwarding costs or those associated with producing new company stationery
- Compatible with Skype for Business
