The overarching advantage of SIP trunking is the ability to combine multimedia signals and data over a single line – but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Aside from reducing multiple phone lines into a single point of entry, there are various business benefits to using SIP trunking over the traditional analog system. Below is a list of our top 5 reasons why we’re seeing a growing popularity in SIP trunking!
One of the most notable benefits about SIP trunking is the ability to scale quickly and effortlessly. As your business grows over time, you have the option of adding as many additional circuits as you need to the SIP trunk with very little setup time.
Who doesn’t love a good cost saver? Your savings with SIP trunks will depend on what you’re currently paying for your existing service as well as the SIP trunk offer you decide to deploy. However, the efficiencies you will gain by combining voice and data into one network coupled with the reduced IT costs associated with maintaining phone lines will equate to significant monetary savings.
While traditional PSTNs are sold in increment channels (4, 6, 8, 12, etc.), SIP trunks can be ordered in the precise amount that you need. If you have a small branch office that would only require 5 sessions at a single time, you simply purchase a trunk for that specific size. No need for additional costs from unnecessary channels!
You can always adjust the size of your SIP trunk to accommodate variations in bandwidth requirements, such as temporary peak times in call volumes or seasonal changes. Not only can you dynamically vary the amount of bandwidth given to any application based on requirements at any time, but you can also easily route traffic depending on volumes.
With IP-based phone services, your system is protected from extreme weather conditions, natural disasters or even office renovations and ensures reliability far beyond a traditional PSTN. SIP lines can be programmed so that if users are out of the office, the lines roll over to backup sites, or to devices somewhere within your network at a backup facility. It’s all based on the business rules you set up, and allows for peace of mind and business continuity in the event of any disaster
