Another acronym for your ever-growing list, this time, however, it’s an important one.
In the world of communications, ISDN, VoIP & PBX… it’s time for SIP to take the centre stage, with its ability to save you a lot of time, but most importantly, money.
What exactly is SIP Trunking?
Session Initiation Protocol, more commonly known as SIP. An application layer protocol used to establish and terminate data and voice transfers, also a type of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), which refers to calls delivered over the internet.
VoIP is based entirely on SIP, using a Private Branch Exchange (PBX) to send and receive calls. Substituting the soon to be obsolete Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN), a system that transmitted data and voice digitally over copper wires.
Is SIP worth thinking about from a Business point of view?

When it launched in 1986, (yes, it’s that old), it was a great option for businesses to adopt. The ability to deliver voice and data over one line, it was a technology dream come true, nowadays there are a variety of better, improved options available.
If you’re considering a switch, not only is it less expensive to maintain; it’s also cheaper on a day-to-day basis… you could save up to 50% on line rentals and up to 25% or more on call costs. With a lot of SIP Trunking providers offering free internal calls, which is very handy for medium-sized businesses.
