Modern, flexible business phone systems use VoIP technology (Voice over Internet Protocol) for cloud-based phone systems. A VoIP-based phone system, like BizCloud, uses hosted PBX technology to automatically deliver your calls over the Internet via SIP connection.
Or maybe you’re upgrading your in-house phone system to switch to Internet-based phone connections – resulting in a large savings in phone costs, with higher quality call connections. You’ll want to use a SIP trunk.
But what exactly does a SIP trunk do?
What is a SIP Trunk?
You may already be familiar with VoIP phone services, and cloud-based phone systems – a popular technology many businesses have switched to, using the Internet to make calls instead of a traditional phone system with cables and wires that take time and money to install.
VoIP alone just sends voice over your internet line; if you want to send video or text, you need a SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) as well.
And if you have an in-house PBX system, you need a SIP trunk to bypass delivering your calls to the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) to make phone calls. SIP trunks can also be used for on-premise PBX systems and hybrid systems, if that is the setup your business needs.
What does all this mean? If you want the lower cost and increased flexibility of managing your phone calls, video calls, and text over the Internet, your phone system should include a SIP trunk.
