To achieve better and cost-effective telephone services, many companies decide to replace their traditional phone lines with an Internet-based solution. SIP trunking stands for Session Initiation Protocol, and it is based on VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) – with establishing a PBX connection (private branch exchange). Along with the direct savings, companies are able to reduce the workforce and maintenance costs by using this technology. Other benefits of SIP trunking are given as follows.
Consolidating The Communication
SIP trunking will merge all communication modes (voice, text, video), thus consolidating all of the phone services. This will increase efficiency and usability.
New features can be implemented into the system without additional expenses. Systems based on landlines are not rich with capabilities, and some offered features require extra monthly fees. SIP trunking provides new options – call forwarding, video conferencing, caller ID, etc., which come without additional cost, bringing top-class service at a significantly lower price.
Lowering The Fees
SIP trunking eliminates all unexpected call overages, and also all call forwarding costs. Classic landlines demanded users to pay a monthly fee for the call forwarding services. By SIP trunking – unlimited call forwarding is available to users without additional cost, which will significantly decrease the monthly phone costs.
Unlimited Calling Volume
Today – VoIP providers offer calling plans with unlimited local inward and outward calls, so the previous fees – associated with the old technology are no longer existent. This elimination of extra traffic and its accompanying fees – has lead to significant savings for many companies.
By using SIP – companies pay by the trunk, so they can scale the traffic easily. The organization can buy as many trunks as it needs, and there are no longer expenses for purchasing extra trunks.
SIP trunking reduces the need for classic phone lines hardware, which requires a significant investment for many large companies. Since SIP trunking is entirely IP-based, deployment is effortless, networks are straightforward, and there is no need for extra hardware for the legacy telecom platforms of the past.
When using classical phone lines, in every maintenance issue, the engineers had to resolve the problem manually – inducing costs for the transport and the man-hour, even if the users had service agreements in place. By moving to VoIP, troubleshooting activities are performed digitally, which considerably reduces the fees, eliminates downtime, and optimizes efficiency. Considering all these benefits, it’s understandable what made this communications revolution transpire globally and why many businesses have started using the SIP trunking technology.
