When it comes to voice services for business communication, SIP lines are transforming the way organizations connect with clients, partners and workers. With SIP trunking, businesses can significantly reduce the cost of telephone technology while expanding the ways employees can communicate and collaborate.
What is SIP trunking? SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol, a technology used to enable voice communication via the Internet, or SIP lines, instead of traditional telephone lines. In a SIP trunk, SIP lines use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to connect an organization to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), creating virtual telephone extensions rather than physical ones and allowing users to make and receive calls on any device, including computers, laptops, smart phones and tablets, as well as traditional telephone equipment.
With SIP lines, businesses can avoid the expense of installing and maintaining traditional analog telephone lines. Costs for local calling as well as long-distance and international calls are much cheaper. SIP phone service is more reliable as well, as voice traffic can be automatically rerouted to another number or trunk group during a connection failure or service outage. And SIP lines enable organizations to provide workers with Unified Communications solutions, enhancing collaboration and productivity with tools like instant messaging and presence, unified messaging, audio/web/videoconferencing, simultaneous ring (find me/follow me) and more.
