Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) has become a hugely popular part of how many businesses communicate, although the move from traditional telephony systems can prove to be a tricky proposition.

However, by using Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), which makes the prospect of migrating to VoIP much easier.

The cloud-based nature of SIP trunking means companies can replace traditional telephone trunks connecting phone systems with the public switched telephone network (PSTN).

There are a number of key benefits that come with SIP trunking. For instance, it allows businesses to get a VoIP-enabled cloud-hosted phone system that offers flexibilty. Everything is hosted over the internet meaning that location is no longer a limitation for users.

Flexible working is a trend that has substantially increased in popularity over the last few years, and SIP trunking can help enhance any such approach.
