Companies around the world are switching their dial tone service over to SIP because it’s easier to manage, costs less and provides more features. SIP technology was developed over twenty years ago and has since gone mainstream, becoming the preferred way to communicate with voice, messaging, and video.
Unlike older PRI-T1s and POTS lines, SIP does not require a dedicated circuit and connects like computers over the Internet. Each POTS line handles one call and PRIs support 23, but SIP has no circuit restraints and can scale as quickly as you need. It also drives down cost, makes office moves easier and significantly improves uptime.
During a service outage, PRIs can only forward its numbers to one backup number (e.g., to the lead number of a few POTS lines ringing into the reception desk). When both PRI & POTS lines are affected (e.g., power outage), your company can no longer receive calls. SIP can connect over as many Internet connections as you have (across any number of offices), and, when none are available, redirect each number to any destination you want (e.g., to employee’s cell phones). SIP makes it possible to create an environment where you never lose calls.
Is your current phone bill bloated with regulatory surcharges and taxes? These often add up to as much as 50% of the total bill. Our SIP service is clean and pure and averages around 10% of your bill. With no circuit fee, reduced surcharges and taxes, and lower monthly rates, our customer are saving as much as 70% each month.
New telephone systems are SIP-ready and older systems can connect with a simple converter. Unless you are under a freshly signed service contract (one that wasn’t “auto-renewed”), there is no good reason to postpone receiving better service for less money. You should switch your company to SIP today.
