SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- SIP trunking is a system that maintains multimedia communications such as phone or video calls via the Internet. A SIP trunk provider is a business that brings SIP trunking and other VoIP services to customers. Unlike traditional analog phone systems, SIP providers are able to combine data and voice connections into one single line. A SIP system uses an onsite PBX in order to route calls. Limitless calls between office extensions are then available once a hosted PBX system is set up in office. The PBX also synchronizes the two systems to provide an efficient and inexpensive telephony service.
The biggest benefit of SIP providers is the inexpensive external calls. SIP trunking has many other benefits too, including: consolidated extensions, caller ID, increased reliability, local and long distance, elimination of IP-PSTN gateways, an auto attendant, DID calling for every extension and E911. There are multiple SIP trunking providers on the telecom market and the experts at VoipReview.org have analyzed customer satisfaction, monthly rates, and quality of service in order to determine the 3 best SIP trunking providers of the year.
BroadVoice has a US-based customer and technical service, where customers are able to speak to an attendant that will help get the SIP trunking system back up and running instantly. Amongst other reasons, this makes for BroadVoice to continuously receive exemplary reviews by their thousands of customers. All with quality service and a reliable system, BroadVoice offers three different SIP trunking plans. The smallest package starts at a minimum of 5 ports and 1 DID per trunk and extends up to unlimited ports and 1 DID per trunk. Their pricing is affordable, starting at $55 per month and up to $400 per month. In order to give customers the most bang for your buck, BroadVoice charges $5 for each additional port and $2 for each additional DID. BroadVoice has extensively tested Asterisk, Trixbox, Shoretel, Switchvox and Talkswitch, so that customers routing millions of minutes a month can use these CRM platforms. BroadVoice provides DID numbers in any of the lower 48 states, regardless of where the company's residency is. BroadVoice has the flexibility and customization that businesses desire, making it the number one SIP trunking provider for companies of all sizes.
8x8, Inc. provides customers with features and reliable phone service at an affordable price. They offer a range of customizable plans, in order to meet the needs of companies of all sizes. They have eight separate plans, with a specific SIP trunking plan included as well. Businesses are known to save 50% or more when switching to 8x8 Inc. services and they do not require users to sign a contract. They have unlimited calling in the US and Canada and includes a softphone and mobile app.
The third best SIP trunking provider of the year is Net2Phone. Their service works well for consumers with all types of business needs. They offer companies inbound and outbound calling at low costs and a choice of a telephone number from another country so that no matter where you reside or have your business, the number stays consistent. Net2Phone is a global leader in VoIP that lets users purchase their SIP trunking service without a contract or monthly fees, meaning that customers only pay for what they use. Customers have saved up to 90% by switching to Net2Phone SIP trunking. Some of the excellent features included in their services are: broadband phone service, wholesaler termination, IP-PBX and SIP trunking, mobile VoIP, and international VoIP. With unlimited minutes and affordable international calling, Net2Phone is a preferred VoIP and SIP trunk provider by many.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT ...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

The enterprise is being consumerized, and the consumer is being enterprised. Moore's Law does not matter anymore, the future belongs to business virtualization powered by invisible service architecture, powered by hyperscale and hyperconvergence, and facilitated by vertical streaming and horizontal scaling and consolidation.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...
