In the past few decades, VoIP has accelerated growth, and thus, from a traditional VoIP solution to smart VoIP solutions have emerged. SIP trunking has played a major role in the growth and popularity of various VoIP software solutions.
Let us share the top 5 advantages of SIP trunking:
1. Reduced cost of infrastructure
For any business or individual, a reduction in the cost is very important. SIP trunking removed overlapping lines of communication for traversing voice and data. Instead of using a network of overlapping lines, SIP trunking uses a single network that is IP based to traverse both, voice and data packets. Thus, it reduces the expenses related to the installation, management, and maintenance of the communication network.
2. Reduced cost of communication
One of the major reasons behind the popularity of VoIP solutions is cheaper costs of communication and that could be possible with SIP trunking. All calls are carried out on SIP lines; in simpler words on internet lines. Even international calls are often carried out as local calls because it gets transferred from the SIP network to the PSTN network when it reaches the end termination point of the VoIP network in the destination city. Thus, the cost of communication is very cheap even for international calls.
3. Enables emergency numbers
Earlier, using emergency numbers with VoIP based solutions was not possible, but this is not the case any further. SIP trunking lets configuring emergency numbers. It means dialing 911 from an IP PBX solution will do the same thing as if you dial 911 from a landline phone. Yes, you will need to take the help of your service provider, but this is achievable with modern technology.
4. Remove the involvement of PSTN completely
This is possible to carry out all communication via SIP lines. At no point, you would need a PSTN number for communication. This kind of communication is way cheaper because at no point you need to involve the cost of PSTN lines. This is possible with telephone number mapping using ENUM.
5. Remove excessive hardware
This is a major issue when you use a business phone service from PSTN providers. You need to use multiple hardware devices from PRI gateways to landline phones, wires, so on, and so forth. This is not the case with SIP trunking. It uses SIP lines for communication. Thus, it uses minimum hardware. In fact, you can remove all hardware from the picture with modern technology. Use cloud space to host the solution to remove on-site servers. Use a mobile SIP dialer or a PC dialer to remove the need for IP phones. Removing hardware will not only make it easier to manage the communication network, but it will also help in reducing the expenses needed for the installation and maintenance of the hardware.
There are many more benefits of using SIP trunking. Thus, use the communication solutions that support the same. ASTPP 4 allows configuring SIP trunking to bestow many pros. Contact us to know more and get a demo of ASTPP 4.
