SIP Trunking

What is it?

SIP is the standard protocol for real time and voice communication over the Internet; and SIP Trunking is the signaling and controlling of communication sessions through internet telephony. These sessions usually include voice and video calls, instant messaging, among many more. In layman's terms, a SIP provider can connect multiple channels to your PBX, allowing you to make calls (local, long distance, and international) over the Internet. 

This technology is expected to be a strong player in managing  business communication systems in the years to come, since experiencing massive growth and popularity in the last few years. 

What are the biggest benefits?

  • Cost 
    • SIP trunking requires little investment; no additional hardware or equipment purchasing is necessary if your PBX is already SIP-enabled. Calling costs will also see a substantial decrease, because it costs so much less to terminate calls through a SIP provider. 

  • Flexibility 
    • Since SIP trunking uses virtual phone lines, you can add and remove them whenever you need to, and you're only charged for the channels used. 

  • Mobile Communication 

    • Because SIP Trunking allows businesses to make calls local, long distance and international, you can essentially do business anywhere and have employees scattered all over the globe. This mobile communication can save your business money, and expand where you operate. 

  • Reliability 

    • SIP Trunking is a cloud-based service that provides a high level of redundancy. Most companies, like Ytel, have multiple data centers in place to provide secure, multiple layers of redundancy for customers.
SIP Trunking is opening doors and providing new opportunities for businesses on a global scale. It's definitely worth your time to explore the options of SIP Trunking and what it can do for your company!New Call-to-action
