Ingate Opens Eyes to SIP Trunking at ITEXPO

By Erik Linask, Group Managing Editor


With the proliferation of SIP (Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert)) technology in the enterprise communication space, it has become increasingly important for companies to ensure interoperability between TDM-based carrier voice equipment and their own IP networks. SIP trunking is allows businesses to converge their voice and data networks, while retaining connectivity with others that still rely on PSTN communications.
 
To demonstrate the benefits of SIP trunking, Ingate — whose SIParator line SIP enables an enterprises existing firewalls — sponsored a day-long workshop that outlined the benefits of SIP trunking for enterprises that have deployed IP communications.
 
The session included a comprehensive overview of the benefits of SIP trunking, including keys for deployment, various compatible communications solutions, and keys for interoperability with other communications arrangements.
 
In addition to explaining the cost benefits of SIP trunking (enterprises can realize upwards of 40 percent reduction in CAPEX), the Ingate sessions included specifics on how IP PBX (News - Alert) products from Pingtel and Sphere Communications (News - Alert) can be used in conjunction with Ingate to improve the communications environment. In addition, representatives from SIP trunking providers BandTel, VOEX, Level3, and Bandwidth.com were on hand to address the issue and to answer questions from attendees.
 
Presenters from each of the participating companies adeptly described how SIP trunking can easily — and cost effectively — enable rich VoIP-based communications, providing all the benefits of IP communications, without the need for extraneous capital investment. The panelists openly explained the benefits of SIP trunking while addressing attendees concerns about both the general theory as well as vendor-specific challenges. In all, the Ingate-sponsored seminar provided a wealth of information for businesses looking for a way to improve their communications process and managing infrastructure investment at the same time.
