Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking helps Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs) to deliver telephone services and several unified communications to customers that are equipped with SIP-based private branch exchange (IP-PBX) and facilities that support Unified Communications.
Of late, all the major as well as medium scale business houses are vying for SIP Trunking as this new technology is a major trendsetter in the world of telecommunication and easily affordable. Here are 6 ways in which this new technology benefits today’s business fraternity. First let us look at three main reasons for the success of SIP.
- SIP Trunking makes it much easier for the businesses to deliver as well as manage cloud communications services, and migrate from the conventional PSTN to VoIP technology.
- SIP Trunking require negligible CAPEX requirement. This means, businesses can continue using the same features that they receive with their local PBX.
- SIP Trunks are delivered over IP and hence, they are available wherever there is broadband service. With the more and more availability of broadband, an increasing number of are coming up to enjoy the privileges of SIP Trunking.
Now let us discuss the 6 ways in which SIP Trunking can help a business.
(1) Faster Growth:
By using effective networking to combine data and voice, SIP Trunk is unparalleled when it comes to connecting distantly located businesses to expand and help a company to expand its geographic voice and the core data system. Most importantly, in doing so, the technology can dramatically curtail the cost of making and taking overseas calls.
(2) Almost Infinite Scalability
Be it a single shop business or a larger SMB, SIP Trunking technology represents absolute freedom from expensive infrastructure and the so called ‘buying for the future’ capital expenditure. Businesses can come up with a minimal setup depending upon the requirement and then expand it as and when the business grows, to match the needs – and the entire process is extremely simple.
(3) Save 40% On ISDN or Other Systems
As per experts, the average savings that companies around the world have enjoyed because of using SIP Trunking technology is whopping 30%-60%. This figure is really awe-inspiring, so far as PBX investment by a company is concerned, for the purpose of maintaining its IP infrastructure and acquiring the least equipment required to convert the existing system to SIP Trunking. It is here, where the real cost savings start.
(4) Get Rid of Missed Calls
This helps companies to get rid of issues of missed calls, especially when an employee is in a meeting, on move, or is working in a remote place. In these situations, their calls are automatically diverted or routed to their mobile phones. The same can be done with a call that has landed in a line that is busy or in an office that has closed for the day. This ensures that businesses never miss any customer simply because they were unable to receive a call, whatever be the reason behind that.
(5) More Efficiency in Communications
This new technology not only streamlines all the communication channels, it opens up a lot of communication options, even when an employee is working remotely or is on the move. For instance, even when an employee is working remotely, the individual has the option of using voice calls, instant messaging, video conferencing, and the likes to get in touch with a customer, irrespective of his location and regardless of the time of day or night. So virtually, businesses can be in touch with their customers 24×7, if they feel like.
(6) Quick ROI
The Return on Investment is almost instantaneous. Businesses generally start seeing the change within 6 months of installing SIP Trunking. Once the technology is installed, there is no need to make a recurrent payment for the equipment or service that is futuristic at present. It becomes possible for businesses to maximize existing Internet bandwidth by simply adding voice traffic to the existing service. Last but not the least; they can significantly reduce your monthly telephone bills.
