BT have announced their plans to migrate all customers to an IP network by 2025, switching off the company’s ISDN network. As the leading business communications provider, this change will affect millions of businesses across the UK.
SIP Trunking is the latest technology to keep you connected!
What is SIP trunking?
SIP trunking is the latest form of technology that delivers telephone lines using an external data connection as the bearer for the purpose of making and receiving calls. This virtual IP based service uses network data connectivity instead of dedicated fixed line technology methods.
What are the benefits?
1. Number Portability
Using SIP trunks allows you to keep your phone number no matter where you are, because your phone number is attached to an IP address not a physical telephone line. It permits out-of-area geographic number ranges to be used – displaying your organisation as local, despite being physically located elsewhere.
2. Saves You Money
With traditional ISDN your voice and data connection are on different lines. You will be able to save money by having both on one line. SIP trunking can reduce your costs by 50% on line rentals and 25% on calls.
3. Greater Flexibility
SIP trunking gives you complete control of your lines – you can add additional trunks when demand is high, reduce them when demand is low and split calls to make handling more effective. Being able to make these instant changes will help you to remain in total control of your communications.
4. Disaster Recovery
Incidents that cause an interruption to service such as hostile weather, power failures and natural disasters, can have a detrimental impact on your business reputation. This can lead to an abrupt decline in customer retention and loyalty. SIP trunking can ensure you maintain business as usual and will be able to continue working through every eventuality.
How can we help?
With the announcement from BT in 2017 that they were withdrawing support for their ISDN services over the next few years, more and more businesses are looking for technology companies to provide them with SIP connectivity to run their voice network on. SIP connectivity and call bundles can enable businesses to generate significant savings compared to their old legacy ISDN infrastructure. Teleconnect are one of the leading providers of SIP technology and call bundles.
We have SIP packages and call bundles to suit every business, every call profile and every budget. A fixed monthly cost for calls and lines can not only generate savings but will streamline overheads and make budgetary planning far simpler. Flexibility is another key factor when choosing our SIP service. Moving to SIP allows organisations to build in flexibility and be far more fluid with how they meet the challenges of day to day business.
Here at Teleconnect, we want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to upgrade to the latest technology, so we have introduced an incentive to take away some of the financial pain. For a limited period, we are offering to buy back your old system, helping you to offset the cost of upgrading to one of the latest, award-winning Ericsson-LG systems from Teleconnect.
