The phrase “SIP Trunking” or “SIP Trunks”, is increasingly common in the world of telecom. In the last few years, the telecommunications industry has standardized on SIP as the protocol of choice for phone calls on the data network. SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is the technology used for establishing a voice communication session on a data network like the Internet. A SIP “session” might be a regular VoIP phone call between two participants or a multi-party conference call.
What Is SIP Trunking?
A SIP Trunk provides the same service you get from a traditional analog phone line except a SIP Trunk is a “virtual” phone line which is provided by V1 VoIP. We use your data circuit (T1, Cable Modem, DSL, etc) to connect your phone system back to their network.
SIP Trunks Save Customers Money!
Because there are no physical lines that need to be maintained with a SIP Trunk, they are substantially less expensive than traditional telephone service. SIP Trunking can save you up to 50% and more on your monthly bill, depending upon the types and quantities of calls you are making.
What SIP Trunks Do You Need?
The number of SIP Trunks is determined by a few factors. Your Internet connection is an important consideration. SIP Trunks consume bandwidth. Depending upon the quantity of phone calls and need for data bandwidth, you may have to expand your data circuit. First, how many concurrent calls does your business need? As a typical rule of thumb, you’ll need approximately one SIP trunk for each 2-3 users.
