VOIP Phone Systems
As technology has improved over the last decade, we find that more and more of our customers are taking advantage of the capabilities that business voice over IP has to offer (VoIP).
A VoIP call is a voice call placed over the internet rather than a traditional fixed copper line or mobile network. VoIP is quickly becoming the most popular way to communicate with businesses because communicating over the internet offers increased quality and much more flexibility over a traditional Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) solution. Business Voice over IP can help to reduce the cost of calling between sites and can enable your staff to work productively from home whilst gaining all the benefits of being sat in the office. This solution is also perfect for growing business as it can be easy to scale up. At NT Voice & Data, we’ve pioneered very cost-effective ways to allow gradual adoption of VoIP that minimises investment whilst ensuring you gain all the benefits of this technology.

BT will stop offering businesses the ability to acquire ISDN and PSTN after 2020, with the complete switch off happening in 2025. This will mean the end of using traditional phone lines, and telecommunications will be entirely driven by VOIP.

SIP trunking explained
A SIP trunk is a direct connection between your business and an Internet telephony service provider, traditional phone networks and other systems. If your business invests in SIP trunks, this will enable you to extend voice over IP (VoIP) telephony past your company’s firewall without needing an IP-PSTN gateway.
If this sounds complicated, all you really need to know is that this is a simpler configuration, which is both easier and less expensive to design, operate, maintain, and upgrade. Since Internet telephony service providers deliver services (especially long distance) at substantial savings, choosing SIP trunking for your business can give a quick and substantial return on investment. And since there is an option to retain legacy telecoms equipment when setting up your SIP solution, that investment is affordable even for the smallest business.
- Saves you money.
- Ensures your business continuity.
- Provides flexibility.
- Supports multiple locations.
- Is easy to scale up.
- Converges your voice and data.
SIP trunking offers your business a flexible and scalable solution for inbound and outbound voice access to a PBX. It allows convergence of voice and data across a QoS enabled network, which eliminates the need for ISDN access and the associated costs. It also improves security and resilience, and reduces repair times. The simplicity of a converged network means less interfaces, reduced hardware costs, increased reliability and improved efficiency. Simply, the business advantages of using SIP are endless, from improvements in productivity to network cost savings, from streamlining your business processes to providing new services to your customers. It’s no wonder SIP trunking is such a hot topic right now.
‘’Deploying SIP trunking can be a big step towards simplifying your organisation’s telecommunications and towards preparing for the latest real-time communications enhancements, but the biggest motivation for most organisations is immediate and substantial cost savings.’’
