The Benefits of SIP Trunking
- Cost Savings: According to Cordial, consolidating traditional lines onto SIP Trunks that cost less than a traditional line, usually companies see cost savings of 30-40%
- Business Continuity: Because your telephone system is now going over your WAN you can increase redundancy through redundant connections.
- Simplified Architecture: Simply connect the SIP trunk to your PBX and your PBX to your WAN
- Video Enhancement: SIP enables video calls both internally and externally
- Hardware Cost: handsets for VOIP/SIP systems range in price depending on their features, but an entire fleet of hardware can be purchased for a much lower price than traditional phone line equipment with equal features.
- Turn Long Distance Calls Into Local Calls: According to Sip.US, with SIP trunking you can send your calls over the WAN between offices, making long distance calls between offices, local calls. In addition if you can make other calls that would be a local call from the second office a local call from the first office by having your phone system place your call from the second office.
- Portability: an internet phone system does not rely on a phone line, and as such is highly portable. Phone system can be transferred to different buildings, or even different countries, and so long as a stable internet connection is present, the system can be seamlessly moved.
- Hardware Requirements: an entire fleet of VOIP/SIP phones need only access to the internet via a quality network. Multiple phone lines or multiple internet connections are not necessary for a large fleet of devices
- Scalability: It is very easy to expand the number of handsets and calls your system can handle, because SIP trunks are virtual rather than physical, by adding more bandwidth and SIP channels (if required)
- Calling Rates: the largest area of cost savings of VOIP/SIP communications is the calling rates. Rates are as low as a tenth the cost of a traditional phone line, and calls can be made internationally with little to no extra cost.
- Call Features: because VOIP/SIP are based on IP technology and a company’s computer network, call features can be added and improved over the life of a system. If a new feature comes out next year, many system can be updated to gain access to the new feature with little effort.
- Quick Install: if your business already has a good quality computer network in place, then the most time consuming part of a SIP/VOIP install is already completed. With a network in place, many phone systems are as simple to implement as a quick installation of software, and simply plugging in a phone.

SIP Trunking vs VOIP
SIP trunking and VOIP are both cornerstones of IP telephony. However, SIP trunking allows a VOIP network to be taken to the next level. Traditionally, VOIP networks could only transmit voice via a dedicated network. SIP trunking allows for voice, video, data and more to all be broadcast, which allows for a business to take advantage of all of VOIP’s capabilities. You can learn more at this Digium article.
