So you’ve spent a lot of time and energy building your own phone system, but what do you do when your in-house staff recommends switching providers?
Businesses that choose to own their phone system have already invested much time and energy into building their on-premises infrastructure, they are hesitant to change providers, despite what IT recommends.
These businesses can take advantage of RingPlan SIP Trunks instead.
A SIP Trunk or Session Initiated Protocol Trunk is a virtual phone line that connects an existing business phone system over virtual channels, allowing phones to initiate and receive calls over these virtual phone lines.
Popular signaling protocols include UDP (User Data Protocol), TCP (transmission control protocol), TLP (transport layer security), SMTP( simple mail transfer protocol), and HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol).
When switching providers, one often has to go through the painstaking process of recreating their dial plans, including contact lists, extensions, interactive voice recordings, and more. This can be a lot of work for a live, working business.
Companies who own their on-premises phone system may just choose to switch out the session protocol that allows calls to go through, using a RingPlan SIP Trunk in its place.
SIP Trunks are a convenient way for businesses to make the switch to RingPlan without losing all their progress. It’s a fast and easy way to get existing phones up and running.
