Here are 5 myths of SIP Trunking that have been debunked in order to muster up confidence in business owners to make the switch to the new platform
VoIP communications has displayed an increasing amount of momentum in the couple of years that will most likely overshadow legacy equipment in the coming years. Naturally, even though there are numerous benefits to its applications such as SIP Trunking (which is a VoIP service based on the Sensation Initiation Protocol), there will still be a cloud of doubt shown by business owners when it actually comes down to making a switch to their business communication setups. Here are 5 myths of SIP Trunking that have been debunked in order to muster up confidence in business owners to make the switch to the new platform.
1. SIP Trunking does not offer cost saving benefits
Even though the amount of savings may varyonce you make the switch to SIP Trunking, SIP Trunking can provide cost savings from 30-50 percent over legacy systems. For small scale businesses, or those that operate in a smaller environment, you will be looking at cost cuts that fall in between 15-20 percent. What is even more beneficial is that SIP Trunking’s setup costs and future costs are lower than what your business is currently incurring while using the legacy devices.
2. The platform has not gained popularity
While legacy PSTN and ISDN lines and their subsequent equipment are still in use in several small and medium scale organizations, the reality of it is that since SIP Trunking is a voice and video streaming service based on VoIP communications, it is quickly taking over and becoming the new communications standard for nearly all organizations.
3. SIP Trunking is overly complicated
In a nutshell, SIP Trunking is cheaper, easier to install and maintain as compared to a legacy system. This is because SIP Trunking actually streamlines your communications architecture by converging services from separate networks into a single network with simple requirements. All it takes is the sifting of a simple manual that will turn the entire installation process in to a ‘piece of cake’. That in turn will be able to deliver pristine speech quality.
4. Communication systems become more vulnerable
Most users have termed ‘vulnerability’ as a misnomer and believe that nearly all application platforms based on VoIP present a vulnerable environment to communications. You will be surprised to know this butSIP Trunking’s operates at the complete opposite function, and in doing so, improves the integrity of VoIP based communications. By deploying several SIP Trunks, you can conveniently switch between trunks if a disruption occurs. Some corporations have a central and a local SIP trunk located at different sites, which allows traffic to switch to the central location if any unforeseen consequence forces the local trunk to go offline. Trunks are also capable of load balancing traffic.
5. Mediocre call quality
Even though applications like Skype are VoIP apps, they run openly through the Internet, which ends up degrading the call quality. SIP Trunking travels along private IP networks or controlled Internet gateways that are specifically engineered to provide military grade calling quality between two or more callers.
The myths that were widely spoken against SIP Trunking in order to defame the platform have now been debunked, proving to you and your business how dexterous and beneficial SIP Trunking is for you and your business.
