Understanding Voice/SIP Services and the Benefits to Businesses.

As traditional PBX phone equipment ages and becomes obsolete, businesses seek new-generation replacements for their telecommunication needs. SIP Trunking is simply the most innovative, most efficient way to connect a business to its customers.

What Is SIP?

SIP, or Session Initiation Protocol, is a communication protocol that initiates, maintains, and terminates real-time sessions that include voice, video, and messaging applications. Unlike traditional telephony, which relies on bundles of physical wires, a SIP trunk distributes voice, multimedia, and video communications over the internet as data packets. SIP trunk lines refer to the number of calls that can be made simultaneously, providing a more flexible and scalable solution.

The Need for Modern Telecommunication Solutions

Traditional PBX systems are becoming outdated, prompting businesses to seek more advanced replacements. SIP Trunking and a phone system offer significant advantages over traditional telephony, such as cost savings due to eliminating physical lines and lower price structures. Additionally, administration is streamlined; adds, moves, and changes can happen in minutes, making it easy to scale your voice services to meet changing call volumes.

Benefits of SIP Trunking for Businesses

SIP Trunking is not only cost-efficient but also highly scalable and flexible. Adjustments to systems can be made quickly to accommodate changing business needs. BTB’s integrated management tools and centralised billing provide greater visibility, enabling smarter, faster decisions for managing and developing business communications. Whether a business has staff on-site or working remotely, adding SIP Trunking to an existing or new business phone system allows a business to enjoy features such as voice calls, video conferencing, instant messaging, synchronised address books, conference call recording, and more.

Security and Integration

SIP Trunking with a phone system enhances security by encrypting calls, unlike traditional phone lines. It can also integrate seamlessly with business systems such as CRM, billing solutions, and calendars, streamlining operations and improving efficiency.
