What is the Difference Between SIP Trunking and VoIP?

Confused about just what is the difference between SIP trunking and VoIP? How are they related and what are the differences? In simplest laymen’s terms we will provide the practical answer.

VOIP “voice over IP” is a generic term used to cover all voice traffic over the internet protocol.

SIP trunking is simply voice over IP, using the SIP signaling protocol, but instead of using a single SIP user the service provider is providing many. Basically like a T1 circuit, but using voip with multiple trunks.

The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is an application-layer control (signaling) protocol for creating, modifying, and terminating sessions with one or more participants. It can be used to create two-party, multiparty, or multicast sessions that include Internet telephone calls, multimedia distribution, and multimedia conferences.

Voice over Internet Protocol, also called VoIP, IP Telephony, Internet telephony, Broadband telephony, Broadband Phone and Voice over Broadband is the routing of voice conversations over the Internet or through any other IP-based network.

SIP in some cases is a Type of VoIP. …

Since SIP is Session Initiation Protocol, and is a form of VOIP, it is used as a digital voice emulator/PRI replacement. It gives VOIP service more capabilities, such as DID’s (Direct Inward Dial numbers).  The benefit of this service on the commercial level is the ability to avoid buying a PRI card to accommodate a PRI. SIP trunks usually require SIP licenses and connect right to the system. SIP  trunks  are typically more cost effective than copper or t-1 circuits. At Comtex, we have clients who have upgraded to SIP trunks and the savings from the SIP trunks, paid for a new Samsung system in the first year of use.

SIP trunks are essentially have the power of PRI without the cost or limitations. SIP is only limited by your bandwidth, and carriers are coming up with some pretty interesting options.

This will be an area that many will need to become more familiar with, especially in the call center world.

For free assistance in finding a SIP or VoIP solution for your business, please contact Comtex. We offer a no risk and free carrier and telephone system evaluation.

For over 50 years, we have specialized in the design, installation and service of Digital & VoIP telephone systems and video surveillance systems. Free site survey. 24/7 emergency service.

Secure Your Business

Is your business suffering from crime, or are you worried that you haven”t done enough to protect it? There are many different security measures you can take to ensure that your business, your stock, your employees and your customers are safe, and one of these is by installing a CCTV system.

We”re used to seeing surveillance  operations in our streets and in our shops, perhaps even in the place where we work, but would you put it in your business, and if so, why?

Peace of mind

Whether you have been the target of vandals or have experienced robbery or attacks, you need a security system that gives you peace of mind. While a digital surveillance system can”t always stop an attack, it can be a deterrent and it can provide valuable evidence that helps to identify the perpetrator, or to give the police a better idea about what took place. The knowledge that a CCTV system could make a would-be burglar change his or her mind or capture their face on file if they decide to go ahead is the reason that many people invest in CCTV systems.

Adaptable

Unlike many other security measures, CCTV is adaptable. This means you can start off with a small, relatively basic system and add cameras and monitors as and when you need to. You can decide to have static cameras in strategic places and remote-controlled cameras elsewhere. A good CCTV supplier can help to tailor a package that fits your needs.

Protects your staff and your customers

Your staff may have been subject to attack or verbal abuse, and your customers may not feel safe in your store.  A visible surveilance camera helps to protect your most important assets; your employees and your customers. For example, a monitored system could pick up the signs of trouble before anything actually occurs and staff can take immediate action.

It is worth considering whether you and your business could benefit from the installation of a CCTV system
