SIP trunking is starting to become really popular, and there’s plenty of benefits to be gained from combining data and voice services into one networks. Unfortunately, there are lots of myths surrounding VOIP in general – most of them unfounded.
1. There’s Not That Much To Gain
Leaving aside the huge cost benefit, combining everything into one network makes things far easier to manage. Your existing IT department can look after data cables, with no need to call our telecoms companies every-time something goes wrong. There’s also no need for expensive T1’s anymore!
2. Call Quality
SIP trunking uses it’s own networks and gateways to travel the internet. This means that unlike services like Skype, call quality should never really be an issue.
3. It’s Complicated
Far from being more complex, you’re actually simplifying your network and using one – rather than two separate systems. Blue Telecoms can even assist you with getting everything set up correctly.
4. Dead Zones
Most places in the world accept SIP/VOIP traffic perfectly fine; even when they don’t, traffic can be routed back onto the PSTN network to complete its journey.
If you choose a reputable VOIP operator, frequent testing will always ensure that features “play nicely” with each other. By using a company such as Blue Telecoms, you won’t have to spend hours trying to figure out why you cannot get a ringing tone – or why a certain feature won#t work.
6. Sip Trunking Is Expensive
This is such an old argument, and completely debunked! SIP trunking now carries most of the worlds budget VOIP, helping companies save up to 40% off old PSTN systems.
7. It’s Less Reliable
Far from being less reliable, you have the capability of switching trunks if issues occur. Some larger companies even operate different trunks at different sites – allowing communication even if one goes down. This is something you just can’t do using a PSTN system.
8. You Must Dial Between Two SIPS To Make Savings
This is not true at all. For many VOIP networks, calls to mobiles and landlines can be extremely cheap. This is one reason why most telesales diallers are setup using VOIP systems – it’s cheaper!
