Most people know that SIP Trunking can save you money. For most businesses, SIP can instantly save you as much as 40-50% off of your monthly business phone bills. However, not everyone realizes that SIP Trunking has other popular features, too. Here are some common examples:
First of all, how easy is SIP to set up? Fortunately, SIP is easily integrated into many types of current phone equipment. If you currently have a non-IP or digital PBX system, for example, you can leverage your current infrastructure by switching to SIP. Additionally, you can purchase a single line at a time. This makes set up easier, since you only have to pay for what you use.
As mentioned above, you only have to purchase the number of lines you actually require. With PRI circuits, you are forced to use 23 voice channels, which means you are often paying for services you don’t require. SIP Trunking only needs one channel. Not only does this save you money, but it gives you a lot of flexibility in how you choose to configure your system.
SIP also makes it practical to employ remote workers. One of the most popular features of SIP Trunking is that you can assign phone numbers to remote or home offices without a lot of infrastructure changes. All your remote employees will require is an IP phone or their mobile device.
SIP Trunking tends to be more reliable than traditional systems. This is because traditional systems rely on fixed lines. SIP Trunking, on the other hand, uses a virtual connection via the internet. If you have a quality provider, you should not experience many issues.
