What are the implications of the switch to SIP trunking? Our webinar showed how SIP trunking is an opportunity for improving the overall enterprise voice and unified communications environment – and provided best practices on how to get there.

SIP trunking is climbing the corporate agenda as incumbent throughout Europe switch off their ISDN networks. Austria, Slovakia and Macedonia have already replaced ISDN with SIP trunks, and larger markets such as Germany, Switzerland and Belgium will follow in 2018. The majority of operators will have made the transition to an all-IP network by the beginning of the next decade.

To understand the implications of this move, Orange Business Services held a webinar on April 21, 2016. It shared how the switch to SIP is an opportunity for improving the overall enterprise voice and unified communications environment – and provided best practices on how to get there.

For your interest we created a report on the webinar, along with more information on our SIP trunking page.

Take action now

The webinar outlined six key reasons enterprises should move to SIP, rather than wait to be forced by the incumbent.

  1. Cost savings of up to 50% on your telephony spend
  2. Simplify communications infrastructure by eliminating a separate voice network
  3. Increased scalability up or down to meet your business needs
  4. Better resiliency and disaster recovery planning
  5. Supports any device to collaborate from any location
  6. Easy integration to extend your communications into the cloud

At the core of unified communications

SIP trunking allows you to extend your UC functionality outside of your own infrastructure, allowing you to collaborate seamlessly with contractors, suppliers and partners. The same SIP trunks can address all of your domestic, international and local voice needs, along with other channels such as video and conferencing.

Phased migration

Success in SIP trunking comes from taking control of the project and not attempting to do everything in a big bang deployment. Look to undertake a phased migration to minimize risk and port all of your numbers over to your new infrastructure in good time.
