6 great benefits of sip trunking
Get the most out of your existing non-VoIP PBX hardware
IPComms SIP trunking is an affordable way to combine your existing PBX hardware with a Voice Over IP (VoIP) system. Simply by adding a VoIP gateway to any legacy PBX, a business can benefit from the low-cost incoming and outgoing VoIP calls offered by the carrier.
Easily expand as your business grows
With SIP Trunking, most services can be activated within 24 hours of placing an order. As your company grows, SIP trunks allow you to increase network capacity without installing physical land lines – all additional services delivered seamlessly over your broadband connection.
Get the most out of your IP PBX
If you already have a VoIP-based business phone system, simply add IPComms SIP trunks and start enjoying quality local and long distance calls. We support the most popular IP PBXs, such as: Asterisk, PBX in Flash, Avaya, FreePBX, Trixbox, Switchvox, Fonality, Elastix, 3CX, Linksys, Grandstream, Talkswitch and Aastra. Each individual SIP trunk can support one concurrent call, unlimited inbound and pay-as-you-go calls, or unlimited inbound outbound calls.
Allows communication across multiple geographic locations
SIP trunks are not geo-restricted – SIP trunks are not installed on the physical site. Instead, they are licensed over your existing broadband internet connection. In contrast, a traditional PRI service is delivered via a T1 coin pair that must be brought to your office.
Save money by combining voice and data
The typical enterprise uses only a fraction of their overall bandwidth for their data needs, leaving 80% of their available bandwidth in use. SIP trunks eliminate the need for both a data and a voice circuit by migrating your voice communications into your existing broadband connection. Best of all, you don’t have to sacrifice reliability or quality.
Offers immediately expand into new markets
A single corporate SIP trunking connection can provide enough capacity to serve any size business from SMB to entire large enterprise. Enterprises with multiple sites can use a single SIP trunking account instead of multiple PSTN connections.
