The Possible Future of SIP Services in the VoIP Industry

SIP trunk service can save a business so much money, but the majority still do not know what that service is. Is it the marketing? Has it not reached the public lexicon the way that VoIP has? What we are finding after reading a report from Infonetics Research is that, “Businesses are looking for is reliability, quality and low cost telephone service. The transport mechanism is secondary.”

A SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) connection is a service offered by many ITSP (Internet Telephony Service Providers) that connects a company’s PBX to the existing telephone system infrastructure (PSTN) via Internet using the SIP VoIP standard. At V1 VoIP, we offer a SIP trunking service called PSTN Gateway.

The VoIP industry is inundated with technical jargon; words, phrases, and acronyms that come as second nature to us (see some of our blog links here, here, and here about commonly used VoIP acronyms and words), but are completely foreign to the public at large. It’s still surprising how many people do not know what VoIP stands for! (Voice Over Internet Protocol, just in case you were wondering!)

I suppose part of the struggle in getting some SIP terms into the mainstream vocabulary is the fact that our entire industry is an alternative approach to an embedded technology: landlines, and regular phone systems. It has been a difficult enough struggle to get mainstream people to want to try to switch the phone service they know to something else without piling on different types of new services. Will everyone one day know what the acronym SIP is? Or will there be another acronym that becomes part of the lexicon.

V1 VoIP SIP Trunk 101 Information

V1 VoIP 101 information guide to SIP services, SIP trunk solutions, and hosted SIP PBXAt V1 VoIP, we offer SIP trunks, hosting, and hosted PBX, which along with the ability to make VoIP calls means businesses can get SIP accounts to distribute to their employees, which allows anyone using a SIP device to call them for free as long as they know the SIP address associated with that account. SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol. and here we will help you learn what SIP does, why it is used, and how you can earn recurring income as a SIP reseller.

What is SIP?
SIP is a signaling protocol used primarily for setting up communications within an IP network. The role of SIP within an IP communications network is to allow callers to easily locate their targeted recipients, and deliver session invitations effectively regardless of where the end users are located or what devices they are using. SIP is the de facto standard protocol for establishing, manipulating and terminating VoIP communication sessions.

What is a SIP trunk?
SIP Trunking is a service provided to businesses that allows them to connect their in-house IP PBX systems to the outside world – the public switched telephone network or PSTN. Without SIP Trunking, devices within a PBX can only talk to other devices on the same network. The ITSPs gives their clients a pipe or a “trunk”, which makes the connection to the PSTN, thereby exponentially increasing the reach and usefulness of their PBXs. V1 VoIP resellers are able to build on the traditional SIP trunk service and create entirely new business models; and these new “SIP Providers” are changing the face of the VoIP industry.

What is Hosted SIP (PBX)?
While a SIP trunk only caters to firms who already have their own IP PBX system built and are ready to hook up to the PSTN, the latest breed of SIP providers don’t require their clients to have anything other than phones. These ITSPs have their own PBXs hosted on their servers and allow businesses to make use of them, delivering VoIP services at extremely low prices. ‘Hosted PBX’ services come with built-in connections to the PSTN network, eliminating their clients’ need to purchase trunking separately.

What is a SIP address?
A SIP address looks just like an email. By default, the domain of the email – the part just before the “.com” will belong to the ITSP providing the service. When you use V1 VoIP, your SIP address will look similar to this: “employee@companyname.v1voip.com.” V1 VoIP also allows you the ability to change the SIP address domain to match the corporate email ID which your employees use.
