SIP Trunking is a term applied to the services offered by a SIP Provider or LECs (Local Exchange Carriers), ILECs (Independent Local Exchange Carriers), CLECs (Competitive Local Exchange Carriers) and ITSPs (Internet Telephony Service Providers) to terminate Voice over IP (VoIP) calls to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).
SIP Trunking allows enterprises and small businesses to eliminate a PSTN gateway at their site and outsource that function to a carrier. It is typically a lower-cost alternative to Primary Rate Interfaces (PRIs) because SIP trunks can be purchased in single-trunk increments (as compared to 23 channel increments for a PRI). Your company will reduce costs using Voice SIP Trunks versus traditional TDM lines.
Here’s a hypothetical example of how SIP Trunking works: A Los Angeles-based sales representative places a long distance call to a client based in New York City using a dialing prefix and the local-area phone number. The call either originates as an IP call or is converted to one before it leaves the office and then travels the majority of the way over the IP network of the service provider, then drops back down to the PSTN once it reaches its termination point. Since a sizable portion of the call traveled over the IP network at no additional cost rather than on the PSTN, the service provider can (and does) charge a mere fraction of what the traditional fee would be without the IP connection.
With these facts in mind, there is no question that SIP Trunking offers compelling advantages for businesses large and small.
As a SIP Provider, we work with you to provide exceptional cost savings and the benefits of SIP Trunking to your business.
Leading telecommunications company to promote MPLS VPN as a functional and cost effective solution for multi location enterprises.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Oct 28, 2010 – GULF BREEZE, FL – ECTtelecom, a leading telecommunications provider, has begun promoting and educating their clients regarding the benefits of Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS). MPLS may not be a household term, but it is the fastest growing wide area networking (WAN) technology and is widely used by leading carriers around the world.
As ECTtelecom president Kenny Wilder explains, “MPLS blends the performance and privacy of legacy WAN technologies (like frame relay) with the flexibility and cost advantages of internet-based networks, such as IPSec VPNs.” Kenny explains that traditionally, when a company wants to connect its geographically different sites they would usually rely on a Frame Relay circuit, or purchase an ATM circuit or lease a dedicated telco line. “Now the solution can be provided by the internet service provider by implementing an MPLS VPN to connect their locations” says Wilder.
One of the biggest advantages that clients are thrilled about with the emerging MPLS VPN technology is Quality of Service (QoS). QoS will ensure that the most important network traffic in your organization, such as Voice over IP (VoIP) and business-critical enterprise applications are prioritized for the highest level of quality. This capability ensures consistent, interruption free network performance and prevents your most critical applications from failing due to network congestion.
Wilder goes on to tell us “We are most excited about offering our Site-to-Site MPLS VPN service because of the hassle that it eliminates for the end users. ECTtelecom and our partners offer the collective experience of managed network service teams and can cut out the complicated, costly and time-consuming encryption devices and routing schemes that even the most sophisticated IT staffs are challenged to support. Now, we take that responsibility off of your IT staff and offer a solution that not only performs better, but saves you time and money in the long run”.
ECTtelecom says that enterprises can streamline their operations across the country and enhance their business productivity using the MPLS VPN network. It is possible to distribute voice, video and data across the network just as is possible in a LAN environment. With the possibilities of multimedia services, intra-office voice calls, VoIP, video conferencing, data transfer, etc. this solution is poised to be an excellent option for multi-location enterprises looking to reduce network complexity and cost.
