What are SIP Trunks?
SIP trunks offer a more flexible and lower cost alternative to ISDN for inbound and outbound voice calls.
A standards-based replacement for traditional ISDN, it connects your PBX to the PSTN via broadband, ethernet or private circuit into our national network.
Compared to ISDN, our SIP trunking service is less costly per channel and more flexible in how and where geographic telephone numbers can be used. It’s also quicker to install and provision and, as standard, it delivers extremely robust business continuity.
The service can support connections ranging from two channels for small PBX-equipped businesses, to an unlimited number of channels for large enterprises and contact centres.
With BT planning to switch off its ISDN and PSDN networks by 2025, businesses across the UK are being urged to make the switch to IP telephony.
Will it work for my business?
Any business with a PBX can switch to our SIP trunking service and immediately benefit from a more flexible, less expensive and more resilient phone service.
If you don't have a PBX, why not consider our hosted phone system?
The Benefits of SIP Trunks
Save money on call costs and line rental
SIP delivers less costly, more reliable connectivity than ISDN over an IP connection. It can save up to 50% on line rentals and 25% or more on call costs.
Free internal calls and great features
Perfect for medium or large organisations with multiple sites, not only will you save on your line rental and call costs, but you’ll get free internal calls within your organisation and a whole host of great features.
Scale up and down when you want
SIP trunks are ideal if you are moving, upsizing or downsizing and want to keep your existing numbers. Scale up lines during busy periods and back down again afterwards. You can add lines, take them away, split calls at any time. You are always in control.
Built-in Business Continuity
SIP trunks can handle emergencies easily. They are inherently disaster recovery / business continuity ready, letting you reroute calls to an alternative location quickly and easily.
Compatible with Skype® for Business
Our SIP trunks are integration tested and approved to interoperate with Microsoft Skype® for Business, allowing you to directly connect to the platform to make external calls.
