Switching to SIP Trunking: Here’s Why You Should Do It Now

As a business owner, you most likely have a telephony system that you rely on to stay in communication both internally and externally. You also know that you paid quite a lot for the installation of your traditional phone network and that you’re spending a hefty amount on its ongoing use and maintenance.

All these said, you should already recognize the benefits of using SIP trunking for your organization. The sooner you do, the sooner you can begin the migration, and the sooner you can reap the benefits of Session Initiation Protocol.

Lowering costs without compromising connectivity

SIPTRUNK, Inc. says the lower costs associated with SIP trunking is one of its most attractive features since it can save your business a fair amount of money. This is especially true for an organization that still uses the dated TDM trunks. Making the switch to SIP can reduce your telephony system expenses by anywhere from 20 to 60 percent.

One of the biggest reasons for this is due to SIP trunking generally providing much lower-priced yet stable long-distance calling services than its traditional counterparts. What happens is that it transforms long-distance calls to local calls; hence, the cheaper rates.

Highly scalable yet easy to maintain

Another great attribute of SIP trunking is that you can easily fine-tune and customize it for your specific business needs without having to worry about complicated software or hardware. You can scale up its capacity during high-volume or peak seasons, and scale it down once things calm down. Since the system works virtually rather than physically, the changes and maintenance are far easier to carry out than with traditional telephony systems.

These are just two of the reasons why SIP trunking makes sense for a lot of organizations, but they should be enough to make you consider making the switch or integrating it into your current network.
