A recent report from Infonetics Research stated that SIP trunking grew an astonishing 88 percent in 2011, pushing the market for enterprise session border controllers to a 60 percent increase. While North America has the largest SBC market, other regions of the world may soon eclipse North America, as SIP trunking hits higher adoption levels in emerging markets.
Based on statistics, SIP trunking is on the rise no matter where you look. Here’s a look at what happened in the SIP trunking sphere this week.
IntelePeer announced that Longmont Hospital in Colorado had used its CoreCloud SIP trunking along with Avaya’s SBC Advanced for Enterprise solution to achieve a drop of 60 percent in their monthly calling expenses. “IntelePeer's expertise, support and flexibility were essential in making sure our migration from PRI to SIP trunking met our technical and financial objectives,” said Gary Harding, telecom manager at Longmont United Hospital.
“The company's familiarity and compliance with Avaya's full range of equipment gave us confidence that IntelePeer CoreCloud SIP trunking was the right choice.” To read more of Rahul Ahora’s reporting about the partnership between Longmont Hospital and IntelePeer, click here.
In other news, testing showed that Ingate’s SIParator Enterprise SBC has achieved compatibility with Positron’s G-Series IP-PBX solutions. The SIParator E-SBC, according to Ingate, allows organizations to simply and securely adopt SIP trunking and Unified Communications.
“When positioning our G-series as a cost-effective product line, we looked to pair our product with a peer element integral to the voice-over-IP service. The Ingate SIParator provides a comprehensive IP and SIP security system that is feature-rich and suitably priced for our customers,” stated Jeff Liberman, vice-president of sales and business development for Positron Telecom.

Additionally, GreatAmerica Leasing Company and Telanetix have joined forces to combine Telanetix’s SIP trunking services with GreatAmerica’s business phone hardware. By choosing the unified solution, customers can have a single bill covering both telephony and SIP trunking costs.
The solution, reported in an article by Steve Anderson, will also save customers the trouble of looking for a separate SIP trunking provider after they’ve leased their telephone equipment.
