There are just so many different reasons why every business, regardless of size or niche, needs to have a flawless, unified communications system. From remaining in constant contact with everyone involved in the organization (leaders, workforce, clients, investors, etc.) to ensuring smooth, uninterrupted operations, a telephony system is indeed a “vital organ” that one should never undervalue.

However, with the considerable costs associated with the acquisition, maintenance, and upgrade of traditional phone systems, it can be easy to fall into the temptation of cutting back on this major aspect of your business. The good news is, much thanks to Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), you will no longer have to. Here are just a few reasons why you should make the smart move of switching to SIP trunk.

More than just VoIP-like qualities

How does SIP work with VoIP? This is a very important question you need answered, especially since a lot of people think that they are the same.

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has become extremely popular over the years due to its cheap price yet considerable coverage, which includes voice and text messages. As the term suggests, Internet protocol runs it, which means that the user only needs Internet connection.

SIP functions similarly, although it has a much greater scope: it can run on almost any platform, giving you numerous communication platforms to choose from.

Utmost reliability for a much lower cost

One of the biggest benefits of SIP trunking is that it delivers connectivity just as – or even more reliable than the traditional lines and circuits, such as the T1 and ISDN PRI. However, here lies one of the former’s greatest advantages too: the fact that it costs far less not just in terms of installation, but also maintenance and operation.

A major contributor to this lower cost is that SIP trunking does not require as many different types of hardware as traditional telephony systems.

In fact, it needs very little, which means that it demands just a small physical area too. This further makes it an even more attractive option.
