Broadvox Meets Increased Demand for SIP Trunking

Broadvox_Logo.gifBroadvox announces an extension of an aggressive new promotion for its commercial SIP Trunking service. Broadvox guarantees a free 5-day installation period to turn up service on its industry leading SIP Trunks plus a 20% discount off the price of each line.

SIP Trunking saves businesses up to 70% over the cost of traditional PRIs or analog phone lines. By combining voice and data over a single broadband circuit, SIP Trunking allows customers to use broadband more efficiently and guarantees that customers buy just what they need rather than being forced to purchase a 23-channel PRI. SIP Trunking is extremely scalable so companies can purchase lines as they need them. As the alternative to traditional telephony, business SIP Trunking is projected to grow by 15% per year, as more businesses choose to take advantage of the savings and benefits of Voice over IP via an IP PBX.

Comprehensive Study on SIP Trunking Reflects Emerging Enterprise Adoption

SonusNetworks_Logo.gifSonus Networks released the results of a global study which quantifies large enterprises deployment status, plans and attitudes about SIP Trunking and, by extension, Session Border Controllers. Commissioned by Sonus and conducted by Webtorials Editorial and Analyst Division, the “2012 SIP Trunking State-of-the-Market Report” found that while VoIP is a fully mature technology within corporate networks for intra-company communications, SIP Trunking, by contrast, is still in the early stages of deployment. In fact, roughly two-thirds of the respondents reported either “Significant Use” or “Extensive Use” of VoIP, while only about one-third of the respondents reported either “Significant Use” or “Extensive Use” of SIP Trunks. Among those using SIP Trunks, significant cost savings have been realized, with an average savings on the order of 33%.
