Factors to Be Aware of When Beginning to Leverage SIP Trunking


By Jamie Epstein
SIP Trunking Report Web Editor

SIP trunking is all the rage these days in the technology world. What did you say… you don’t know what it is? Well, let me inform you. Sip trunking is a VoIP-based streaming media solution that leverages Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), allowing Internet telephony service providers to provide their clients with a large array of telephone services and unified communications solutions. One catch though—customers must possess a SIP-based private branch exchange (IP-PBX) to see the most bang from their buck from SIP trunking.


There are many benefits of SIP trunking including significantly reduced operating costs, improved productivity and efficiency, and a much better overall return on investment. Sip trunking is a great solution that businesses around the world should consider due to the fact that once up and running, as new applications are introduced to the market, SIP trunking can easily power them.

However with all of the advantages seen through SIP trunking, some companies are still hesitant to begin using this solution for many reasons including quality of service, security, firewall capabilities, NAT traversal, SIP interoperability and support for remote workers.

Unsure of which way to go? Don’t worry it’s only natural, and that’s exactly why inGate is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. EDT that will dive down into ways to successfully deploy enterprise SIP trunking. The not-to-miss event will provide attendees with invaluable information such as tools and best practice to remain mindful of to quickly overcome any obstacles that may come your way when initially getting this solution up and running.

Additionally, information that will be highlighted include what SIP trunks are, how seamlessly integrating voice and data can work as an competitive advantage for enterprises, and various migration strategies.

Systems integrators, resellers, distributors , enterprise management staff responsible for communication services , enterprise technical staff supporting VoIP networks, service provider network operations, product management and services marketing staff, telecommunications equipment manufacturers, and marketing and operations managers are strongly encouraged to take place in this exciting seminar.
