5 Benefits of SIP Trunks
25th January 2019
SIP Trunks work by connecting your site to a PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) via the Internet, so good Internet Connectivity is essential. Here we give 5 benefits switching to SIP Trunks would give to your business.
- Saving money
IP connections are cheaper than traditional ISDN lines. Also, ISDN line services are ending in 2025 so why not make the switch now and save yourself some money at the same time. SIP trunk pricing is usually billed on a per-user basis and is simple to understand and with predictable monthly costs.
- Unified Communications
SIP Trunks enable you to take advantage of Unified Communications. Unified Communications allow you to streamline the way you communicate with calls, emails, video conferencing, messaging and voicemail all within a unified solution that works across networks and devices. It also allows you to take a cloud-based unified communications solution.
- Flexible and Scalable
Once you have SIP Trunks you can easily make changes to meet your business needs. Moving? Not to worry, all your existing numbers can be kept. Need a Telford number but based in Birmingham? Easily done. Also, if you are expanding rapidly or scaling down, it is easy to add or remove SIP trunks.
SIP Trunking together with mobile VoIP apps allows remote workers to be connected to main systems and always reachable on a dedicated business number. This can also enable a business to continue taking calls and communicating should the internet connection fail.
If your business has a traditional phone system and has an incident meaning work cannot be done on site, it can be almost impossible to carry on trading. With SIP Trunking you can simply divert your lines instantaneously which protects your business operations.
