Over the last few years, 123NET has worked closely with customers, partners, and other carriers to transition away from copper infrastructure. The telecommunications industry, as a whole, is undergoing a massive shift. Before Fiber infrastructure was popular, businesses used their t1 Lines for voice and data needs. Companies are transitioning their data services to fiber and discovering that SIP Trunking is a close and better voice service substitute. Discover more about SIP Trunking and how it has migrated into most businesses.  

How is the replacement of T1s taking place?

SIP trunking is a communication protocol utilized for calls, instant messaging, and video calls between VoIP (Voice over IP) devices. This can offer the same voice quality and reliability level as traditional T1 lines. There is also access to many benefits that were not possible with T1s, including: 

  • Flexibility: SIP trunks are more flexible than traditional T1 lines because it offers multiple ports and IP addresses. This makes it easy to add or remove devices from a network as needed. Setting up new locations or relocating to an existing one without worrying about the expense and hassle.
  • Cost savings: With VoIP service providers, it offers lower rates per minute than traditional long-distance carriers. This occurs by switching over from using old-fashioned analog phones. 

Why do businesses choose SIP Trunking? 

Businesses have certain communication requirements that involve the same connection while saving time and money through a secure solution. Here are two reasons why businesses choose SIP Trunking:  

  • Update and Replace Technology: As technology evolves, businesses adapt to the newest and greatest voice servers to provide quality customer communication. Additional features include messaging and video conferencing.
  • Reliable Connection: When paired with reliable fiber or fixed wireless internet, users can experience a better phone connection.
