SIP Trunking and Marking the Evolution of the Enterprise 2

Last week, I explored the SIP Trunking market and started to explain the benefits of SIP Trunking.   Enterprise IT cost savings, as explained last week, is a key driver.

There are also savings on calls, especially long distance calls.  There might be IP to IP calls via a service like Skype so there are no long distance charges at all, or there might be IP to PSTN calls, where the move to the PSTN occurs locally so it’s only a local call. 

Finally, the SIP Trunk enables cloud based communications.   This also comes with different business models, such as pay per use, pay per subscriber, pay by the month, etc.  In other words, a small business can “pay as you go” which makes more sense for smaller businesses.  And these cloud based communication solutions aren’t simple PBXs – they can be Unified Communication solutions as well.  So the promise of a richer set of communication solution indeed has come.

The use of SIP Trunks impacts infrastructure as well.  This is a driver for the enterprise SBC market – the more SIP Trunks being used, the more SBCs are required to demarcate the edge.   And if an enterprise still has a working analog/digital PBX (hey, if it works, why get rid of it) then a gateway will be required to translate from the SIP trunk to the PBX. 

Sangoma has all the different solutions you might need to support your SIP Trunking needs.  In addition to offering SIP Trunk service ourself, and offering enterprise SBCs and enterprise gateways, we also have cloud based PBX, cloud based UCaaS and cloud based fax.
