WHAT IS SIP TRUNKING?

WHY USE SIP TRUNKING FOR YOUR BUSINESS PHONE SYSTEM?
Save money. SIP Trunking eliminates high monthly phone bills by right-sizing your voice needs as a business. If you still get charged for long distance fees or maintenance on your phone lines, SIP Trunks may be the solution for your business.
Reliability. Copper phone lines are a technology of the past, and phone service providers know it - which is why they no longer focus on them. An upgrade to SIP Trunking will help you avoid a major downtime event.
Disaster Recovery. SIP Trunks utilize a virtual connection through your existing internet connection. If you internet goes down, the phone numbers will automatically re-route to a predetermined location. If you experience an outage on your POTS or PRI, contacting your phone service provider to manually re-route calls can be challenging and disruptive to your business.
Scalability. Never worry about the amount of phone lines your business requires again. Because SIP Trunks are virtual connections, it recognizes when you need more lines and will add them automatically without additional configuration.
