nexVortex SIP Trunking services allow businesses to sever the tie from traditional phone companies and make calls directly from your IP PBX or similar VoIP enabled devices over an existing internet connection.
What is SIP Trunking?
SIP or Session Initiated Protocol is the dominant industry protocol for setting up phone calls across the internet. The SIP standard was started back in 1996. (You can learn more about
the SIP specification on Wikipedia by clicking here). By 2001 the standard was pretty solid and many manufacturers had announced plans to support SIP. SIP Trunking as a service offered by independent providers like nexVortex emerged in 2005. nexVortex was an early adopter in this space and began offering full service late that same year.
As a service, SIP Trunking is more than the inherent ability to connect to IP devices. To be meaningful, a SIP Trunking provider must, at a minimum, support the following functionality:
- Make calls to anywhere in the world
- calls on both standard telephone numbers and tollfree numbers
- 911/E911 calls
As with any mission critical application, your SIP Trunking service must be highly available and deliver high quality connections.
Beyond these basic requirements, high quality providers of SIP Trunking offer flexible terms based on your calling requirements, advance controls for managing your service and quality support.
