What is a SIP Trunk?

What is a SIP Trunk?

SIP Trunking is a VOIP service based on SIP (Session Initiation Protocol). It is a means to connect IP enabled PBX’s to the outside world using an internet connection. It does not require traditional ISDN or analogue telephone lines to route inbound or outbound phone calls.

SIP Trunks provide a "best of both worlds" solution between traditional telephone systems and the features, benefits and flexibility of the latest advances in cloud telephony. Features include call recording in the cloud, queuing in the cloud, BYOD (bring your own device integration), real time reporting and wall boards, and responsive disaster recovery, amongst many others.

On-premise PBX’s provide the peace of mind of a tangible asset and when coupled with a SIP Trunk keeps it future proofed for years to come whilst enjoying the advantages of ever evolving technology.
