SIP trunking can be more cost-effective than traditional phone lines or ISDN, as it allows businesses to pay for only the capacity they need and eliminates the need for expensive hardware. This can be particularly beneficial for businesses with a high volume of mobile, long-distance or international calls, as SIP trunking can reduce these charges.
SIP trunking also reduces costs by eliminating the need for separate voice and data connections and expands the potential for communications convergence using both voice and data together. As a company grows, all necessary infrastructure to handle additional voice/data traffic is already in place. This gives companies of all sizes a streamlined, cloud-hosted phone system that combines different advanced communication features.
Because SIP trunks are virtual rather than physical, scaling and maintenance are much more manageable. With legacy telephony, increasing capacity requires purchasing additional physical lines from the phone company. SIP trunks, however, can be easily adjusted with a change to the software configuration. SIP trunking allows businesses to quickly scale their phone capacity up or down as needed without needing expensive hardware upgrades or installations. This can be useful for businesses that experience seasonal call volume fluctuations or are expanding or downsizing.
SIP trunks are extremely stable, because as virtual lines they are not susceptible to local power outages resulting from weather events or equipment failure. The technology also allows call to be routed to pre-determined locations if a primary office location goes offline for any reason. Considering even a few minutes of downtime can cost a business thousands of pounds, business continuity is a major advantage of SIP trunking.
