Many companies face either the challenge of having outgrown their traditional analog or digital phone system or wanting additional features, flexibility and cost-savings. In order to leverage existing equipment and technology, control costs and improve collaboration, many companies are considering Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), an application-layer protocol used for IP based phone systems.
Adopting SIP to make the move to IP-based communications can have a projected savings of up to 70%. These savings can be recognized in three distinct ways:
- Fewer telecom charges through lower intrastate and oversees long distance fees for multi-location companies.
- More effective control and management of bandwidth using SIP as the central hub allowing sites to pull bandwidth as needed as opposed to buying bandwidth at the site level that may go unused.
- Repurpose existing PBX equipment and incur little to no capital costs.
Making the move to SIP can be fast and hassle-free – often being able to be delivered in 48 hours or less. To learn how through 5 easy steps can allow you to take advantage of the savings SIP yields click here.
