Posted by VoIP Blogger on Aug 17, 2014 3:03:13 PM

SIP trunking has already matured as an industry offering multiple benefits for businesses. Let us disclose them.  

Decreased costs and improved economy

According to survey, companies and enterprises with SIP trunks save 21% to 59%. The reason is that VoIP-enabled technology provides more cost-effective international and long-distance calling compared with traditional solutions. To put it short, all long-distance calls are treated as local. 

Easier scaling

SIP trunking also provides 40-60% cost reduction in monthly services. Companies using old TDM lines have to buy more lines to handle heavy call loads. It means that the lines will be under-utilized if the number of calls is decreased. SIP trunking, on the contrary, can be tailored to a company needs. Companies can scale up and down calling capacity depending on the season. On-demand or automatic burst capabilities can also be included. 

Improved manageability

SIP trunks are enabled with rapid configuration capabilities, which come with many extra options not available before. For instance, a season-dependent business, like resorts, hotels and others, can deploy trunks only in case of population growth. During the off-seasons SIP trunks can be released.

Careful planning

SIP trunking is here to stay, and it can help enhance use of company resources and curtail its costs. Service providers and VoIP equipment vendor has different solutions and requirements. That`s why it`s reasonable to perform due diligence and plan capacity for scoping the exact SBC at demarcation line, which will be able to carry out required call routing and perform security actions as well as grow with the changing needs of the company.

  • integrated data facilitates the process

it`s much easier to train employees on one system
