SIP Trunking has become one of the most requested services by V1 VoIP resellers. For those looking to get into the market, here is an easy guide to the underlying technology of SIP Trunking, including what goes into creating a SIP trunking service, and why you should be offering it to your customers.
What Exactly is SIP Trunking?
SIP trunking replaces analog and PRI phone lines because it is the VoIP connection used with a customer’s PBX for making calls. V1 VoIP SIP Trunking is usually much less expensive than traditional landlines and has an incredible amount of features.
The Elements of SIP Trunking
This is a central device in a telecommunications network which connects telephone calls from one phone line to another, across a legacy telecommunication network or the public Internet, entirely by means of software running on a general-purpose computer system.
SIP trunking requires proper Internet bandwidth at the softswitch location and across the entire Internet network. Quality providers have multiple ISP’s and use major internet backbone carriers.

Call origination refers to the collecting of the calls initiated by a calling party on a telephone exchange of the PSTN, and handing off the calls to a VoIP endpoint or to another exchange or telephone company for completion to a called party. Originating carriers provide the DID’s and toll free numbers for SIP trunking.
Call termination, or voice termination, is the service of a telecommunication carrier who completes the telephone calls originated by the calling party to the intended destination.

SIP trunk providers purchase through the wholesale channel. They typically contract with many carriers and choose providers based upon coverage, pricing and quality. They then monitor the performance, statistics and costs for each carrier and modify their call routing to provide the highest quality calls. Most wholesalers offer tiered pricing that the SIP trunk provider can choose from. The best wholesalers provide custom-built “rate decks” that allow the SIP trunk provider to design their own network of carriers and automatically route calls based upon pre-set criteria.
Lastly, the SIP trunk provider can actively manage their carriers so that if a specific carrier has quality issues, that carrier can be removed from the call routing table, either temporarily or permanently.
Now that you know all that goes into being a SIP trunking provider, you are now an educated buyer.
