2017 may see business rates soar for companies in the South East of England and many broadband service providers will be raising prices due to this. However, SIP trunking may be the answer. Here at Meridian, we believe we can help your business but we are aware that in an industry that relies on using so many telecommunications and broadband, a lot of confusing jargons and abbreviations gets thrown around without knowing why.
Meridian IP communications have always been customer focussed and we like to remove the unnecessary barriers and focus on the universal language of money and how to save it. SIP trunking can help you save money by using your data network to handle all your calls so you no longer need separate phone lines. You may have read our earlier blog on VOIP internet calls and SIP trunking is the means of how to make this happen.
SIP can provide all of the advantages of the business internet and phone use but combined with VOIP, it will make office planning so much easier in the long run. If your business is expanding and requires new individual external telephone numbers that connect directly to your office desk? They are also cheaper with SIP.
So now for the technical bit.
So for those who like to hear the complicated details:
“ A SIP trunk replaces the need for traditional analogue, T1-based Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) connections with termination instead provided over a company’s public or private Internet connection through a SIP provider. These SIP providers, often referred to as Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSP), provide PSTN service on a per minute or channelized pricing model. “
Basically, you can purchase landlines for unlimited calls but if your business simply doesn’t need to make that many calls? Then you could be overspending?
In short, SIP is for you.
