What the SIP? SIP Trunking explained
SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is a specific function of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology. That’s a lot of acronyms, so let’s break it down a bit further. Simply, the goal of SIP is to allow voice and video communication to occur over the internet without having a traditional relationship with a telephone company. It enables virtual connections that link your existing business phone system to the telephone network utilizing your current internet access.
You can then pool your resource needs – cutting your costs while being able to utilize modern real-time communications services, like call recording, bursting and Enhanced 911 (E911) emergency calls. Rather than replacing your current phone system, enhance it with SIP and future proof your business.
