Companies across every industry are migrating to IP telephony to avoid the costly investments of legacy communication solutions. Allstream will be providing affordable SIP trunking suites geared to businesses with 100 to 400-plus employees. Their offering will scale to different tiers of services based on organizations’ size.
By consolidating data, Internet and voice traffic onto a single high-speed IP network, SIP trunking simplifies network management and improves capacity utilization. SIP trunks can connect directly to your existing IP-PBX, or through the use of an SIP Gateway so it can be configured with PRI signaling to connect easily to any legacy PBX.
Once it is connected, voice traffic is carried over the data network along with many of the features that are essential in today’s digital environment. Allstream will deliver advanced unified communications, real-time collaboration applications, videoconferencing and fixed mobile convergence in its SIP trunking suites.
Allstream is a Canadian IP communications company, the only national provider that works exclusively with business customers. Because the company has its own 30,000 kilometer (18,641 mile) fiber optic network, it is able to deliver SIP services with a secure and reliable bandwidth delivering a 100 percent service level agreement (SLA).
With these solutions in place, businesses in Canada can save up to 40 percent on telecommunication costs compared to legacy phone services, which includes free long distance anywhere on the Allstream network.
“Allstream was the first national telecommunications company to provide SIP Trunking in Canada. We have the years of experience, technical expertise and customer focus to deliver a SIP solution that meets the needs of any Canadian business. We are also making significant new investments in Next Generation Voice Services that will be available to customers in early 2016,” said Edith Cloutier, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Allstream.
The Allstream service eliminates the need to manage multiple PRIs or separate phone lines for each site by replacing traditional voice circuits with a single IP connection. The nationwide capability of the company now reaches 1,000 exchanges so that businesses across the country can access the benefits of SIP trunking with different options, including over an MPLS or Internet connection.
