With another short-formed term for your already massive list; this time however, it’s an important one that you need to remember.
In the world of telecommunications, ISDN, VoIP & PBX… it’s time for SIP to take the main stage, with its capability to save you a lot of time, but most substantially, money.
Session Initiation Protocol, more universally known as SIP. An application layer protocol used to create and dismiss data & voice transfers, it’s also a type of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), which refers to calls delivered over an internet connection.
VoIP is based exclusively on SIP, using a Private Branch Exchange (PBX) to send and receive calls. Alleviating the soon to be archaic Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN), a system that communicated data and voice digitally over various copper wires.
Worst case scenario, your business is still using ISDN & a PBX to facilitate your calls, in which you’re perhaps thinking, what’s suddenly wrong with ISDN…?
When it first launched throughout 1986, (yes, it’s that old), it was a fantastic chance for businesses to adopt. The ability to distribute voice and data over one line, it was a technology dream, nowadays there are a variety of good quality, enhanced options available.
If you’re contemplating a switch, not only is it less expensive to sustain; it’s also less expensive on a day-to-day basis… you could save up to 50% on line rentals and up to 25% or more on call costs. With a lot of SIP suppliers proposing free internal calls, which is very handy for medium-sized businesses.
