SIP trunking is a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and streaming media service solution. SIP trunking allows for Internet telephony service providers to deliver telephone services and unified communication to any one that is equipped with the proper IP-PBX equipment.

It was a busy week for SIP trunking companies as Gamma announced it would be taking on a new partner, while BroadConnect Telecom is extending its product line, and Avails revealed it’s adding on a voice calling feature for its iOS platform.

Gamma and City Lifeline announced they would be partnering up to work on developing the ultimate communications provider. Anshu Shrivastava, TMCnet Contributor, reported on the announcement. “This new partnership will provide Gamma with first rate co-location services, which will in turn boost its reliability and recommendations among potential channel partners, according to company officials,” said Shrivastava.

Alan Mackie, head of SIP Services at Gamma, said he is happy to work with City Lifeline to create this new network. “As a company we are dedicated to innovation and efficiency, which is why we chose to partner with a company like City Lifeline, which shares these values so openly,” said Mackie. “Thanks to the help of City Lifeline, the company can take its market leading services to the next level.”
