Gamma SIP Trunks connect your customers’ businesses with our nationwide network, gives access to the PSTN and provides a more flexible and lower cost alternative to ISDN for inbound and outbound voice calls.
First and foremost SIP is significantly less costly than ISDN. It offers your customers the opportunity to make real operational cost savings through free calls to UK 01, 02, 03 numbers, whilst at the same time improving service flexibility.
ISDN line rationalisation options and they are the ideal way to reduce the number of PBXs that require maintaining, whilst your customer retains full control of the numbers associated with their business.
Gamma SIP Trunks support business relocations by enabling a geographic number to be kept without incurring any ongoing call forwarding costs. This not only ensures continuity of business, it also reduces the cost impact associated with having to change company stationery, directory entries and advertisements. We can also supply SIP trunking with out-of-area geographic number ranges for customers who, for example, wish to appear local even if they don’t have a local physical presence.
With Gamma SIP Trunks delivered over Gamma Broadband or Gamma Ethernet, your customers can have a high-quality voice and data service from just one connection and they’ll make significant cost savings.
Businesses of all sizes need a business continuity plan for their telephony. Our SIP trunks, when combined with our Inbound service, means your customers’ callers can always get through. Simply divert published numbers to backup locations or mobile phone – instantly and from anywhere.
If you’ve ever had to deal with a service outage you’ll know first-hand that speed of response is key. Our active/standby, load sharing and resilience designs are engineered to cope with any situation and maintain your customers’ telephony uptime. Whether your customers need to keep their businesses running in an emergency without the high cost of call forwarding or simply need to balance call loadings between sites during peak, Gamma SIP Trunks will provide a business-grade solution.
Our SIP trunking service provides free call termination to UK fixed destinations, including 01, 02 and 03 number ranges, as well as mobile calls, allowing you to focus on the service benefits rather than a straight pricing discussion. If you prefer it, you can set the price your customer pays, creating a uniquely-differentiated proposition, which gives you a massive edge. In addition, SIP provides free internal calls between connected sites, including international.
SIP (or Session Initiation Protocol) – also known as SIP trunking – is our market-leading and cost-effective replacement for traditional ISDN. It connects your customers’ PBX to the PSTN via broadband, Ethernet or private circuit into our national network. Our SIP trunks work seamlessly with each of the leading IP PBX brands in the UK market.
Any business with a PBX can switch to our SIP trunking service and immediately benefit from a more flexible, less expensive and more resilient phone service. Try our SIP v ISDN cost calculator right now and see for yourself. For customers that don’t have a PBX, consider our Hosted Horizon phone.
SIP trunking is now a mature service enjoyed by thousands of UK organisations and this alone is testimony to the reliability of SIP. For added reassurance while your customers switch to us, SIP trunks can even be used with existing ISDN connections to ensure the transition goes smoothly.
Owning our own national network means we can identify and fix issues faster, through our advanced monitoring and diagnostic tools. It’s the reliability of our service that’s helped us win many major UK fixed line network awards in recent years and one of the reasons more and more businesses are choosing Gamma SIP Trunks.
