Cloud Services

Let Tridacom worry about technology so you can focus on your Business

Leveraging cloud computing instead of buying new infrastructure is becoming common place, and for many organizations, it has become the default choice. Cloud computing fulfills rapid IT environment provisioning needs and allows the use of on-demand applications, enabling companies to analyze big data as storage requirements grow.

Cloud Hosted Voice & SIP Trunking

SIP, or Session Initiation Protocol, is the standard communications protocol for voice and video in a Unified Communications (UC) solution across a data network.

A SIP trunk replaces the need for traditional analog. Instead, T1-based Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) connections with termination is provided over a company’s public or private Internet connection through a SIP provider.

Learn more about SIP Trunking

The “trunk” in SIP trunking is a term from circuit-switched telecommunications. It refers to a dedicated physical line that connects switching equipment. A SIP trunk is similar to its circuit-switched predecessor in that it is a connection between telecommunications systems, but it is different because the connection it describes is a virtual connection. This connection can be made over a line that is used only for SIP trunking, over a dedicated line that carries SIP trunking with other IP traffic, or over the Internet on a virtual private network (VPN).

Why Do I Need SIP Trunking?

SIP is used to create and control the communications sessions that are the basis of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephony. This takes advantage of shared lines, such as a company’s Internet connection, to allow more flexibility in communications. SIP is also used for instant messaging, telepresence updates, multimedia, conferencing, and other real-time services that can traverse a SIP trunk. RTP (Real-Time Protocol) manages the actual voice data in a VoIP calls.

SIP Trunk Pricing

SIP providers, often referred to as Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSP), provide PSTN service on a per minute or channelized pricing model.

The per-minute pricing model is fairly self-explanatory, with a set rate per minute of usage. A channelized pricing model typically provides nearly unlimited minutes on a set number of channels or call paths. For example, a company can purchase 10 channels and make use of unlimited minutes on those channels but can only have 10 simultaneous calls.

Deploying SIP trunking can be a big step towards simplifying your organization’s telecommunications and towards preparing for the latest real-time communications enhancements, but the biggest motivation for most organizations is immediate and substantial cost savings.

Benefits to your business

Save money on long distance service
Long distance service typically costs significantly less with a SIP trunk connection.

Eliminate IP-PSTN gateways (or even your entire PBX)
Because SIP trunks connect directly to your ITSP without traversing the publicly switched telephone network, you can get rid of IP-PSTN gateways and their attendant cost and complexity. Some ITSPs will even host a PBX for you, taking over both the PBX hardware and user administration if you choose, with substantial cost savings from reduced complexity, maintenance, and administration.

Eliminate a redundant network
Deploying SIP trunking is a logical step towards the goal of having a single, IP-based network, rather than redundant telephone and data networks.

Eliminate BRI and PRI subscription fees
With a SIP trunk connected directly to an ITSP (Internet Telephony Service Provider), you can dispense with costly BRIs (Basic Rate Interface) and PRIs (Primary Rate Interface), replacing them with service that can cost significantly less. Furthermore, with SIP trunking you don’t need to buy lines in blocks of 24 or 32. Instead, you can buy the bandwidth you need, in smaller increments, and at better prices.

Extend the capability of an office communications server with new services from ITSPs
With a SIP trunk in place, you can extend existing capabilities with additional services, such as E9-1-1 emergency calling. In the future, we expect ITSPs will offer new services, such as greater integration with mobile phones and telepresence information on devices that are not running Office Communicator.
