What can SIP trunks do for your business that ISDN can’t?
There are many myths surrounding SIP trunking, that have meant that numerous businesses have yet to introduce it as part of their communications solution. It is perceived that SIP trunks are too expensive and difficult to set up, and some people even believe that it will reduce their call quality. In this article, we will outline why it’s time that you ignored these myths and made the move to SIP trunking.
The level of urgency surrounding the migration to SIP trunking has been increased by the planned cessation of ISDN in 2025, but on top of that, there are further benefits to SIP that might make you reconsider how soon to invest.
SIP enables new ways of working- 46% of UK professionals reportedly work from home at least 2.5 days a week and access their files and data over IP based networks and collaborate with colleagues over a range of real-time applications. This means increasingly flexible working patterns, higher levels of productivity and increased employee morale. In addition to this there are many benefits that ISDN simply can’t provide:
What can’t ISDN do?
Firstly, ISDN is less flexible, whilst also being more expensive, meaning you’ll be getting far less ‘bang for your buck’. In addition to this, ISDN has failed to deliver on its promise to deliver on integrating communications services, leaving many businesses still requiring far more advanced collaboration tools.
Unlike with ISDN, SIP trunks can be provisioned and working within minutes, saving you time and money during its setup. When it comes to maintenance, SIP trunks are easily scalable and will be able to facilitate your business’s growth.
Finally, ISDN does not promote network productivity in the same way that SIP trunking does, meaning that businesses who do not migrate may get left behind in during the global digital transformation.
