The Best 3 SIP Trunk Providers of 2014, Determined by VoipReview.org

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.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
