What are SIP Trunks?

Technically, SIP means Session Initiation Protocol. In layman’s terms, SIP Trunks are type of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service. Effectively taking your analogue audio calls and converting them into packets of data, to transmit them over a network (often the Internet). Your voice and data connections are almost certainly vital services for your business. Using SIP Trunks can remove your voice lines and use your data connection to carry both your voice and data traffic, often giving you a more reliable, more robust service; whilst removing your voice line costs, to realize savings, improve your data connectivity or a combination of both. SIP Trunking provides a flexible and low-cost alternative to ISDN for inbound and outbound voice calls. This fact sheet will highlight the benefits of moving to SIP
