What is SIP trunk?
SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) trunking is a way of providing telephone lines using data rather than fixed lines. It gives you the ability to make and receive calls using Internet Protocol (IP) technology without needing to completely replace your PBX.
SIP trunk and VoIP are similar technologies, both using IP technology to transfer voice calls, however, SIP trunking also supports voice, video, messaging and fax.
SIP trunks bridge the gap between the latest in telecommunications technology while utilising compatible legacy PBX infrastructure.
SIP trunking services offer a future-proof solution that is highly scalable, feature-rich, reliable and cost-effective. SIP trunk solutions are the ideal choice for businesses looking to upgrade their legacy telecommunications infrastructure and enhance their workflow.

Requirements for SIP trunking services
Before diving into SIP trunking for your business, there are some key requirements you’ll need to meet to ensure smooth and high-quality communications.
Primarily, you’ll need compatible hardware, specifically a PBX system that supports IP-based services. Additionally, a stable and high-speed internet connection is crucial for optimal performance. Explore these essential elements in more detail and contact us to find out more about our SIP trunk solutions.
SIP Trunk hardware
The core component for SIP trunking is a PBX (Private Branch Exchange) system capable of integrating with IP-based services. Modern IP-PBX systems are more compatible with SIP trunking, although traditional PBX systems can also be adapted using VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) gateways.
Reliable Internet connection
A robust, high-speed (fibre or broadband) internet connection is essential for delivering quality voice communications. Your internet speed should have sufficient bandwidth to support multiple concurrent phone calls, in addition to your regular business data traffic.
