TMCnet SIP Trunking Week in Review


By Carlos Olivera

The SIP trunking space has had a busy week so let’s just dive right in and get to it. Session Initiation Protocol is used for communicating between different devices across an Internet protocol. But if you didn’t know that or what exactly it does, not to worry there is a SIP School to get you caught up to speed. Launched five years ago, SIP school teaches users the ins and outs of SIP including video conferencing, presence, and instant messaging that make up unified communications (UC).


“Wherever SIP touches, that is where we train,” Graham Francis, CEO at The SIP School, told TMCnet at ITEXPO Miami last week. “We have proven ourselves to be in the lead. There are other companies out there that do classroom training, but we have much more reach with e-learning.”

In other SIP news, Telcentris announced its UC solutions have been certified for Zultys IP Phone Systems. Telcentris offers cloud based solutions and communications which will couple well with Zultys single application integration of voice, video, data and mobility.

“SIP trunking provides significant benefits beyond economics, including flexibility of configuration, call clarity, and disaster recovery. As SIP trunking within our MX product line is standard, requiring no additional hardware or licensing, our Channel Partners have a great competitive advantage,” said Steve Francis, chief sales and marketing officer at Zultys.

In other SIP trunking news, MegaPath announced its latest offering, Enterprise Trunking. MegaPath’s latest solution was designed to help an enterprise reduce its operating costs by combining all providers into a single service provider across all locations. This solution not only streamlines voice communications but helps reduce costs as well.

"When compared to PRI and POTS lines, SIP Trunking is a reliable and cost-effective option for large enterprises and small businesses that want to reduce their telephone costs," said Dan Foster, president of Business Markets at MegaPath. "By adding these solutions to our SIP Trunking offerings, we are making it even easier for customers to do business with MegaPath by providing the option to bring your own broadband connection or purchase SIP Trunking with one of our access solutions."
