What is a SIP trunk, and how does it work?

A ‘trunk’ is the technical name given to a line, link, or network that is designed to handle simultaneous signals. With this in mind, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking is a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and streamed media facility, which allows providers to deliver telecommunication services to companies on an entirely different scale. It is, essentially, the future of business communication, enabling companies to operate on a single server rather than multiple platforms. SIP trunking permits voice communication to exist between your business’s telephone system, or PBX, and the telephone network with which you share your data connections. SIP trunking works to bring each of your telecommunication applications together via a shared connection and, in turn, can improve the efficiency of your whole operation.

What are the benefits of SIP trunking, and what problems does it solve?

There are a few very obvious benefits of using SIP trunks in your workplace, including cost effectiveness, convenience, and increased efficiency, as well as providing continuity. If all of your applications are run simultaneously your business will operate much more smoothly, and with the option of filtering certain services. It’s communication, but your way. Additionally, SIP trunking introduces enterprise mobility and enables your entire workforce to access the system wherever they are. Whether you’re at home, working from a different office, or on holiday you will be able to access your company’s servers and use clear, uninterrupted lines of communication. Workplace disasters including fires, floods, and theft were previously a huge problem in communication terms. How can you operate if equipment is damaged, lost, or stolen? SIP trunking has excellent in-built disaster recovery potential, regardless of whether your office is housed in temporary accommodation, or suffering from power failure. Additionally, as it’s remote, SIP trunking won’t interfere with current operations, and comes with far less paraphernalia to be damaged or stolen. SIP trunking solves the issues of unreliable networks, crackly lines, multiple servers attempting to do one job, and costly contracts. It’s an ultimate telecommunication solution.

Why should my company invest in SIP trunking?

Using SIP trunks will increase your company’s flexibility, reduce its outgoings, and improve productivity and performance. Well, when you’re able to communicate more quickly, and with more clarity, than ever before you’re bound to notice the difference. SIP trunking replaces analogue systems to ensure businesses are reaching their optimum levels. It’s also highly scalable, will grow with your business, and enables you to keep one telephone number. Many SIP trunking systems, including our own, provide 24/7 support and guidance, whatever your issue.
