Easy Reseller Guide to V1 VoIP SIP Trunking

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
Softswitch
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.

Bandwidth
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.

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 Explains Difference Between SIP Trunking and PRI

V1 VoIP offers both SIP Trunking and Virtual PRI to our resellers and wholesalers. But what are these VoIP services and how do they differ from each other. Here, V1 VoIP will explain what each one is, how they differ and which one can be more beneficial for your business.

What is Virtual PRI?
PRI stands for Primary Rate Interface, and it is a physical connection between your business and the PSTN. V1 VoIP offers Virtual PRI, a circuit-switched technology, which means that a physical path is reserved for the entire duration of a certain connection between two end points and no other data can be sent along this path while it is in use.

What is SIP trunking?
SIP trunking is also commonly referred to as VoIP termination and represent a packet-switched technology. SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol and is the V1 VoIP service that allows you to send calls through a carrier’s network. A packet-switched technology means that small units of data – packets – are sent through the network and do not prevent other packets from entering the channel at the same time.

What are the main differences between the two?
SIP trunking is a versatile technology which can be aligned with your specific business needs. Its capacity is dependant only on the amount of bandwidth available and can be extended to accommodate an unlimited number of connections. Extra capacity can be easily purchased by phone and will take only a couple of hours to set up. SIP trunks are also not stagnant. If they are not used, the corresponding bandwidth can be applied for other purposes.

PRI usage is related to high costs as they are charged per circuit on a monthly basis. Installation of every line takes time and can be on the expensive side. While the line is not in use, it cannot be applied for other purposes. Moreover, it is capable of carrying only voice data. A PRI is a physical telephone line which enables you to have 23 or 32 simultaneous calls respectively. Even with 50 phone numbers, a business will only be able to have a pre-defined number of connections at the same time. If your call volume is larger and you face the need to increase the capacity, you will have to purchase an additional phone lines with 23 or 32 more channels. Even if you need only 1 channel more, it will still require an entire new line.

While PRIs have their benefits such as a guaranteed call quality, they’re a thing of the past now. We do offer Virtual PRIs, however, we recommend our resellers use SIP Trunking for their business customer needs. Contact V1 VoIP now to take advantage of our SIP trunking services and ask about our wholesale pricing.
