Tuesday, May 10, 2011 TIME: 11:00am ET/ 8:00am PT


SIP trunking has proven to lower operating costs and result in a compelling return on investment for many firms. And, once deployed, the same network architecture can be used to tap into new Unified Communications applications, improving productivity further. With proper planning, installation times can be quite fast. What’s holding up your deployment?

Some considerations in moving to SIP trunking include interoperability between the IP-PBX and the service provider network, firewall and NAT traversal, security, and managing Quality of Service. An Enterprise Session Border Controller (E-SBC) at the edge of the enterprise network plays a crucial role in solving these problems.
