Why You Need SIP Trunking – The Basics

If you have an IP-ready PBX or are thinking about purchasing a new PBX, this might be the right time to think about SIP Trunking.

SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is a standard used around the world for communicating voice or video between devices and software. A SIP trunk is an IP connection that establishes a SIP communications link connecting your business to the Publicly Switched Telephony Network (PSTN).

SIP Trunking enables voice communications and features such as Microsoft Lync’s Enterprise Voice functionality. It helps businesses become more competitive by dramatically reducing telephony communication costs and increasing flexibility and the speed of response to customers.

If you are thinking about implementing a unified communications platform such as Microsoft Lync, then you also need to think about implementing SIP Trunking.
