Session Internet Protocol, or SIP, offers businesses an additional option for phone service that provides many of the benefits of VoIP without the commitment. SIP phone service provides a significant upgrade over legacy phone lines that are both expensive and lack the functionality of more modern Internet-enabled phone systems.
Why SIP Phone Service Might Be Right for You
SIP phone service can provide a safe middle ground for businesses looking to move off legacy phone service. Without getting too technical, SIP allows businesses to make Internet-enabled calls over the traditional public telephone line. Not only does SIP save money, it increases the functionality of your phone service. It also makes it easier for businesses to fully migrate to a cloud solution when they are ready.
Other Benefits of SIP Phone Service
SIP phone service requires little upfront investment, so the cost savings provide an almost immediate return on investment. The technology combines voice and data into a single network. This is beneficial if your business has multiple offices in different locations, or if any of your employees work remotely. SIP phone service can be scaled quickly to connect multiple sites on the same line. This is especially important as more companies have empowered employees to work remotely during the pandemic.
Simplifying the Process
Almost always, SIP phone service does not need a new hardware investment. As a result, you can continue to use existing phones. When you need to add a line, all you need to do is contact your SIP phone service provider and they can remotely increase the number of lines, same day in most cases. SIP can also act as a gateway toward cloud collaboration services, improving how members of your team interact. SIP will pave the way for a seamless migration to Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) that offers services like direct messaging, presence, video conferencing, and other solutions.
Is SIP Right for You?
SIP offers business owners an affordable way to improve phone service if they still use legacy phone lines and traditional premise-based phone systems from companies like Avaya, Nortel, Mitel, Panasonic, Toshiba, NEC, etc. While a full cloud migration might be the best long-term option, SIP provides an immediate solution that requires little investment. It is excellent for businesses that want to improve connectivity, but want to make a slower transition to a full cloud migration.
