Many companies already use phone systems that connect their phones to a Local Area Network (LAN). Telephone connections can be made to the PBX server using a LAN, making the move to SIP trunking affordable and painless. Because SIP trunking is installed using the internet, there is no additional hardware or wiring required, reducing the costs that you would normally see with implementing a new traditional phone system.
You can even save money when updating a legacy phone system to use IP phones and VoIP, as you can connect SIP trunking to your analog system using a gateway, reducing the need to replace your telephony infrastructure.
SIP trunking’s affordable pricing models also permit you to only purchase the number of channels you need with one low monthly rate (Channelized Rate Plan) or only pay for the minutes you use each month (Metered Rate Plan) allowing for flexibility in your monthly call volume. This permits you to cut unnecessary spending and wasted resources, and it lets you combine your voice and data plans into one network. This makes scaling your business simple and affordable, as it is easy to add more channels or use more minutes when your number of phone system users grows.
