With an objective to deliver reliable business solutions that serve the evolving needs of businesses through technology and service innovation, ANPI – a provider of SIP, VoIP and hosted IP communication and application services – has announced a new managed ANPI SIP Trunking solution for SMBs and enterprises.

Springfield, Illinois-based ANPI has developed a SIP Trunking offering and Unified Communications (UC) platform to deliver communication and collaboration tools such as hosted PBX features, as well as audio, Web and video conferencing to enterprises.

Its SIP trunking and hosted UC solutions are available nationwide, complemented by a range of broadband and connectivity options, business continuity and security.

Available by March 1, 2013 with calling plans designed for business of any size, the new ANPI SIP Trunking solution is a managed service, offering a much-improved quality of service and voice calling over that of simple VoIP calls.

As quoted by ANPI, the new offering will provide users with unlimited and metered long-distance options. In addition, users can just as well benefit from the low-priced packages that include unlimited international calling to over 35 countries, and enhanced DIDs with CNAM for both inbound and outbound calling, E911 and a directory listing.

Additionally, users will benefit from proactive monitoring by the ANPI support organization, and the elimination of SIP interoperability issues through the use of an ANPI-supplied Internet Access Device (IAD).

The new managed ANPI SIP Trunking solution can be configured to work with any existing phone system, including key systems, legacy PBXs or VoIP/SIP-enabled IP PBXs.

While using the new managed ANPI SIP Trunking solution, users can also leverage their existing broadband connections or take advantage of ANPI managed broadband services with notable SLAs, security options and lower cost of ownership.

Users can also access ANPI’s SIP Trunking program using native SIP, analog lines, T1 PRIs or T1 CAS circuits, with the company provided IAD.

ANPI’s SIP Trunking, the voice-only or voice and data converged solution, features options such as toll-free numbers, global discounted international rates, load balancing between SIP Trunks and business continuity to address service interruptions or disasters. It is customizable to fit the individual requirements of SMBs and enterprises.

MPLS options are available as well for businesses that require multi-site trunks.

Dave Lewis, CEO at ANPI, said, “The ANPI SIP Trunking solution reduces the cost of communications for any business, irrespective of size, and can be customized to support any existing phone system be it IP or TDM in nature.”

“Moreover,” he said, “because this is a managed service, businesses can be secure in the knowledge that service quality is engineered into the offering, and that their applications will be proactively monitored.”

In related news, ANPI launched the ANPI Premier Program (APP) to support VARs and agents in selling the Business Solutions Division product offering.
