With Session Initiation Protocol, a SIP trunk provides a link between a network and public switched telephone network. With a SIP trunk connection, users can make phone calls from their IP-PBX device without any added wirings costs. It unifies voice, data and Internet services over an IP connection.

XO Communications, a telecom company providing IP communications, managed network and IT infrastructure solutions, has established a reputation for SIP trunking and VoIP services. The company recently introduced session-free pricing for SIP trunking. New, simplified pricing eliminates session charges for XO Enterprise SIP, the company's centralized SIP trunking service for multi-location organizations.

"Our introduction of session-less SIP trunking pricing follows a recognized history of making the buying of our services as uncomplicated as possible,” said Jake Heinz, vice president of marketing for XO Communications. “Customers simply select their port speed, long distance package and any additional features, and they are able to achieve a real cost-savings over their current service as well as other SIP trunking offerings."

XO Enterprise SIP is the evolution of next generation SIP trunking for enterprises. With XO Enterprise SIP, organizations can leverage the power of a centralized IP-PBX in one or a few primary locations and deliver VoIP services to branch locations using an existing private network or the XO MPLS IP-VPN service. Customers using this system can eliminate multiple phone systems and local voice trunks at every location, as well as eliminate the cost of long distance calling between networked sites.

In its statement, XO Communication also clarified that in addition to such simplified pricing, customers also can benefit from other significant differentiators that are standard features of XO Enterprise SIP which includes; Free local service without the need for additional business lines or PRIs; E911 without the need for additional lines; Free DIDs (up to 1000); Integration with both XO MPLS IP-VPN and third-party MPLS networks; Nationwide Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) coverage; Automatic Call Routing for redundancy for single sites, or Failover/Priority Business Continuity for multiple sites.

In related news, the company said that it is delivering an integrated hosted PBX and contact center on demand solution to enable easier management, lower total cost of ownership and improve continuity of businesses’ communications needs.
