With SIP Trunking you get a service that is more robust and cost effective than ISDN. And because SIP Trunking is an IP-based telephony service, you also get number flexibility which gives you a whole host of other added benefits that can solve real business issues. Here are just some of the other ways that SIP Trunking can enhance your business.
Use SIP Trunking to protect your office environment due to disaster such as fire, flood or other natural disaster. Say your London branch has to close in an emergency, and you need the calls routed to Manchester immediately, Cellular Solutions can do this at no extra charge. There is no call forwarding costs for each inbound call and set up at your new location is quick and easy.
Disaster recovery and service resilience
By having two PBXs, each at a separate site and each with its own connection, you will always have service availability. Should one site go down, your inbound and outbound calls can automatically be rerouted to the second site in an instant and without any prohibitive call forwarding charges. With this set up, you can also share the load on inbound calls to two or more sites. You may choose to have your second PBX off-site at a co-location centre thereby avoiding the full cost of a second PBX. Alternatively you may wish to use your existing ISDN line as a backup.
For absolute resilience, SIP Trunking can be used to provide a solution with guaranteed 100% up-time. In the unlikely event that all of your SIP Trunking services are unavailable, you can still instantly re-route your inbound calls to any destination by redirecting calls to your number of choice through a secure online portal.
Does your business have multiple sites? Do you have an ISDN connection into an individual PBX at each site? Using SIP Trunking you can reduce the number of ISDN connections that your business requires and also reduce the maintenance costs on all of your various PBXs. At the remote sites you are left with just the cost of an IP connection and the handsets that you need and you can then pull all the telephony traffic back into your centralised PBX.
Added to this you are also increasing your resilience because you can build into your communications strategy for lines and calls an automatic fail over system should your main site go down. With SIP Trunking you can instantly centralise and distribute the calls somewhere else, to another site or to home workers for example.
Number flexibility with SIP Trunking means that you can keep your existing number, even when moving out of the area, saving you costs on printed company literature and stationery whilst maintaining the perception that you still have a presence in the area you've moved from.
We can easily transfer your old or existing numbers to Cellular Solutions so that you can avoid expensive Remote Call Forwarding (RCF) or call diversion charges.
