Xpander Communications Launches, Expands its SIP Reach

By Rory Lidstone SIP Trunking Report Contributing Writer

Xpander Communications, a provider of modern Internet-based communications services such as SIP trunking and hosted PBX and former Provider of the Month, today launch, a specific division of the company's SIP trunking service meant specifically to expand SIP trunking technology to more businesses using Internet phone systems.

Specifically, Xpander's new SIP trunking technology is designed to be a replacement for legacy analog copper lines, T1 and digital PRI lines. As such, this service makes it easy for businesses to transition from legacy to IP voice quickly, easily and with little upfront cost.

In fact, all businesses need to connect to Xpander's SIP trunk network is an IP phone system that sully supports SIP and a broadband Internet connection with a static IP address. From there, businesses stand to gain a lot by way of savings by switching away from traditional phone services and the many costs that entails — namely lengthy contracts with termination fees, metered long distance, and expensive government taxes.

"It's amazing. With our flexible pricing options we have opened new trunking accounts at a base cost of just $5.50 per month. Even better was the speed of service delivery. They were fully using the trunk to make and receive tier 1 quality calls within minutes after contacting our sales team! You just can't beat that value," said Xpander Communications CEO Gaston Mendez in a statement.

Furthermore, Xpander's SIP trunk service can be activated in as little as one to two business days with new DID phone numbers, while porting over existing telephone numbers can take upwards of three weeks. After that, though, customers can depend on's Tier 4 data centers and a multiredundant, multicarrier environment that provide a high degree of reliability and availability.

In other recent SIP news, Windstream this week had its MPLS enabled Virtual LAN Services certified by the Metro Ethernet Forum as compliant for MEF 9 and MEF 14 technical specifications, while also being Carrier Ethernet 1.0 Certified.
