Unlike traditional PSTN and ISDN leased lines. SIP Trunks allow companies to replace expensive voice lines with SIP trunks (virtual phone lines) that utilise a business’s Internet connection to make voice call through a SIP service provider such as MediaCloud Networks.
SIP Trunks allow business to make and receive both VoIP calls as well as calls made directly to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) at reduced calls rates.
How SIP Trunks work
MediaCloud’s SIP Trunk service is an IP-based voice solution made up of a number of SIP channels that are delivered to your premises over one of our carrier-grade fibre or microwave connections. We offer free inter-branch calls between sites and a PSTN network break out to allow calls to fixed line and mobile network users. We also provide compatibility with most leading PBX systems so any business with an existing IP-enabled PBX that supports the SIP protocol can immediately switch to our SIP Trunk service.
Who is it for?
Any business that wants to remove expensive physical voice lines and reduce outbound call costs by utilising their businesses Internet connection to make voice calls.
How SIP Trunks will benefit your business:
In addition to no significant installation, setup and maintenance/upgrade costs, you can save a significant amount on phone line rentals. You will also see a saving of up to 30% on outbound call costs compared to traditional PSTN and ISDN services. Internal calls across your organisation are completely free, even to nationally and internationally located sites and branch offices.
Unlike traditional ISDN services, SIP channels can be added or removed without the need for physical infrastructure changes, no matter the size of your business. As long as you have the necessary bandwidth to cater for the extra channels, we can give you the SIP channels you need on a ‘pay as you grow’ basis. Additional SIP channels can be added temporarily or on a permanent basis. SIP Trunks are also perfect for seasonal voice demands.
SIP Trunks offer complete number portability. Instantly re-route your calls to an alternative location in the event of an emergency, without incurring any call-forwarding charges. You can also keep your existing numbers when moving to new premises. Our SIP Trunk service can be used with your current IP handsets and IP PBX systems either located on-site or hosted in our secure data centres.
