Today’s voice and data technology offers much more than just fast connections. You can utilize the internet to connect all your business communication systems for greater accessibility, flexibility, and efficiency.
The method in which phone calls are made is changing. Many businesses use central office lines, T1 connections, or PRI’s to make and receive phone calls, but this technology is quickly becoming old news. Savvy business owners, IT managers, and operations leads are upgrading to a new technology called SIP trunking.
SIP technology is cheaper, more flexible, and just as reliable as the existing technology, and is especially useful for small to mid-sized businesses.
SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol, a process by which service providers deliver connected voice, data, video, media, and other digital communications services using an internet connection. SIP Trunking offers employees a variety of options to connect, including web conferencing, chat, intercom, desktop sharing, and more.
Essentially, when service providers say you can “bundle” phone and data services for your business, they are likely talking about using SIP trunking technology. In fact, so many businesses are transitioning their old on-premise PBX systems to SIP trunking technology that it is quickly becoming the standard for businesses in all industries.
