Moving To SIP Trunks
SIP trunking offers a flexibility that is not available through traditional ISDN. A number of possibilities can affect how resilient your voice and data connections are. Unforeseen circumstances, such as damage to lines, moving offices or being unable to redirect calls, can be problematic for your business. SIP trunking minimises these problems and ensures you can keep working through every eventuality.
SIP trunking supports your business by allowing you to decide which number you want to display on a call-by-call basis. Even if you’re making a significant move in location, or just wanting to grow your business without opening more offices. SIP trunking allows out-of-area geographic number ranges to be used; showing your business as local, despite being physically located elsewhere.
Why have a separate voice and data connection when you can have both on one line? By discarding any unnecessary ISDN lines you will be able to save a considerable amount of money. In addition, SIP trunking can typically save you a further 50% on line rentals and 25% on calls.
If you’re still using ISDN, the chances are that you are spending money on lines that you may not actually need all year round. SIP trunking gives you complete control of your lines. You can add more when demand is high, reduce them when there is little demand and split calls to make handling more efficient. Being able to make these changes instantly puts you in total control of your communications.
Often, things will happen that you just can’t control. Whether that’s a problem in the office, busier peak times than usual or a lack of connection, SIP trunking provides a business continuity feature that is designed to handle emergencies with ease. It is able to automatically reroute any calls to back up sites in a number of seconds so there is no disruption for your customers.
