SIP Trunks Explained for NI Businesses
Fenix Solutions are a leading supplier of SIP trunks for businesses in N.Ireland. SIP is a VOIP technology where telephone service providers deliver phone services to customers.
SIP trunks offer a lower cost alternative to ISDN for voice calls. SIP trunking is also the standard replacement for traditional ISDN. That is great news for businesses in N.Ireland as SIP is a more flexible and affordable option that the older ISDN technology.
What Is SIP Technology?
The old telephone network was called the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) This was a network that consisted of analogue lines and digital lines known as ISDN. All of the big Telecom providers in the UK and NI are now moving away from this dated PSTN network.
They are now moving customers to some form of IP. As such a SIP trunk and a phone system upgrade in the near future is going to be inevitable for those businesses in N.Ireland who have not made the switch to either Hosted or SIP.
SIP trunks are telephone line trunks delivered over IP using the SIP protocol. Using this standard protocol, telecom service (VoIP) providers connect one or more channels to the customer’s PBX.
Phone numbers and DDIs are linked to the SIP trunk. In most cases numbers can be ported to the SIP trunk. If you would like to find out more, then give us a call on the number below.
