At V1 VoIP, we are SIP Trunk providers. SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) Trunks are connections that link the PBX at your business premises to the Public Telephone Network (PSTN). These connections are delivered via an IP or broadband connection. Because of this, they are reliable and come with greatly reduced risks of downtime, which could impact your business.
Your voice traffic is carried over a broadband or a managed Internet connection using SIP Trunks. This connection is specifically designed to carry voice traffic, which means high quality of calls. The connection is essentially an end-to-end service, and comes with availability guarantees, voice channel guarantees and voice Quality of Service (QoS).
SIP’s greatest feature is that it is completely scalable. Depending on what your business requires, you can scale your telephony either up or down with ease. SIP Trunks can be instantaneously added to increase your capacity to make and receive inbound and outbound calls at the same time. This is very important to those businesses who are expecting growth, and those that experience seasonally-related busy periods. V1 VoIP SIP Trunking allows you to run your business in the way that you would like, with no restrictions or barriers to growth.
SIP is an extremely versatile form of VoIP. You can easily manipulate outbound numbers, so if you are moving office and wish to keep your existing telephone numbers this is ideal. SIP allows for the setting up of multiple geographic numbers, routed to the same location. You can set up non-geographic numbering easily, including a series of numbers for those companies wishing to have a city based presence.
Using SIP trunks will also save businesses money. Traditionally, ISDN lines are more expensive when it comes to line rental costs. SIP Trunks also remove expensive call forwarding costs associated with the event of a disaster- with SIP, calls can be diverted instantly and easily. With V1 VoIP SIP, call costs are often reduced and calls between sites on the network are free.
Business Continuity and Resilience
V1 VoIP SIP is flexible so you can confidently be prepared for any situation. SIP serves to make a business much more resilient, giving you peace of mind that business continuity will always be possible. You can put in place a disaster recovery plan, set up backup facilities, and ensure business continuity with the help of SIP Trunking. Calls can be rerouted instantly in the event of an emergency, and multiples DDI’s pointed anywhere you wish without having to refer to a middle man first. Some companies choose to use SIP Trunks alongside their existing ISDN infrastructure to make sure that one or the other acts as a fail-over. y
