SIP Trunking Continues to Gain Steam

September 18, 2006

As Rich Tehrani wrote recently, IP peering was one of the main themes to emerge at this past VON event in Boston. Another peering trend, SIP Trunking, which involves the direct IP connection of a SIP-enabled IP-PBX and SIP-compliant VoIP service provider, was also evident at the show and generated a few notable announcements.

First and foremost, the SIP Forum formally announced their embrace and ownership of SIPconnect -- a SIP trunking specification originally pioneered by Cbeyond Communications, Broadsoft, Cisco, and other vendors.

Another announcement from entailed their recent roll out of a SIP trunking solution aimed at the SMB and enterprise business market. They announced distribution deals for that product with Mitel and VoIP Supply, both of which will bundle the offering with their hardware solutions for business looking to maximize the value of their IP PBX systems.
