There is little doubt that unified communications is the wave of the future. Studies show that UC solutions help with worker productivity, and that, of course, helps the bottom line. But deploying a UC strategy entails more than just selecting the right unified communications software. To make the most of UC deployments, companies need to think about SIP trunking.
SIP (Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert)) is the primary VoIP protocol that enables connection between two endpoints in a network. Of course, VoIP is essential in UC, and SIP trunking services allow a PBX (News - Alert) (Private Branch Exchange) to aggregate multiple calls, screen shares, videoconferences, etc. over an IP connection.
There are many companies that play in the UC space, and one of the most popular UC solutions comes from one of the biggest players in the industry. Microsoft Lync is the UC software of choice for many companies, and SIP specialists like Ingate Systems (News - Alert) know how important it is to work with providers like Microsoft. Ingate offers a host of UC solutions and focuses on security so that companies can feel confident in deploying SIP communications.
Companies and individuals interested in SIP trunking are in luck. At the upcoming ITEXPO (News - Alert) Miami event, to be held at the Miami Beach Convention Center from January 30 to February 1, interested parties can attend a series of SIP Trunking-Unified Communications (News - Alert) Seminars. Among the participants are such companies as Microsoft, FaxCore, Grandstream and Ingate. Some of the topics being covered at the event are “The State of SIP,” “SIP Trunking with Microsoft Lync,” “SIP Trunking Security,” and more.
