Any small business will be looking to reduce costs as much as possible while being able to reach the largest number of potential customers possible. SIP trunking can achieve both of these, increasing the amount of money you can use on the rest of your business.
Unlike PRIs offering a fixed number of 23 channels (or lines), SIP Trunking gives the business freedom to choose how many trunks they would like to use. As such, you no longer need to oversubscribe and pay for lines that will only be used during peak times!
Due to the high costs of Integrated Services Digital networks (ISDN) (especially in Canada), small and medium size businesses could not afford to deploy PRI technology into their voice networks. The only viable options for them was to use analog lines which offer quite limited functionality. SIP trunks, with lower access and usage costs than analog lines deliver unmatched functionality allowing SMB customers to deploy solutions only available to large corporation in the past.
By making the switch from your traditional network to a SIP-based system, you are able to achieve the following benefits as a small business:
- Pooling your channels across multiple locations, avoiding the need to pay for services at each site.
- Having multiple phone numbers go to one SIP trunk, saving money on phone lines and increasing your reach to customers.
- Remove the need for toll-free numbers by having local numbers across Canada that will all reach your system as a local call.
There are many benefits of SIP trunking for any size of business. These are three prominent one, but to learn more, click here.
