Session Initiation Protocol

The benefits of Session Initiation Protocol trunking.

Session Initiation Protocol trunking, or SIP trunking, is quickly becoming the dominant technology for enterprise telecommunications. Delivering a host of benefits – from cost savings and expanded services to greater flexibility and access to Unified Communications solutions – Session Initiation Protocol technology is providing enterprises with new ways to communicate and to keep clients and workers connected.

What is a SIP trunk? Session Initiation Protocol trunking is a technology for voice services that uses Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to deliver telecommunications over the Internet instead of traditional telephone lines. Specifically, Session Initiation Protocol is a set of rules that determines how a telephony connection between two endpoints is initiated, managed and terminated over an IP-based network.

By routing calls over a VOIP phone service instead of traditional phone lines, organizations can scale voice services more easily, minimize the time and cost of maintenance on analog infrastructure, improve reliability by providing greater redundancy, and take advantage of IP-based voice technology such as softphones, web conferencing, videoconferencing, presence and simultaneous ring.

When implementing Session Initiation Protocol trunking services, it’s important to choose a provider that can deliver secure connections and dedicated bandwidth over a privately-owned network. That’s where Spectrum Enterprise excels.
