Quite simply, SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is a technology that allows businesses to make and receive phone calls over an internet connection rather than a traditional telephone line.
This is a flexible, cost effective service that doesn’t affect your inbound services regardless of how many times you move office locations.
- Reduced line rental costs
- Keep your existing telephone numbers
- Can be shared between multiple sites
- Future-proof technology
For those with a more technical mind, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a transport independent signalling protocol. It sets up a logical channel between 2 endpoints and this is termed a SIP Trunk. SIP Trunks enable organisations to create a single, IP connection between themselves and their telephone service provider, giving them the ability to make and receive telephone calls and other IP services such as video calls, video conferencing and presence information.
