    SIP trunking

    SIP trunking with REDCOM is a powerful way to build your business. SIP trunking is a secure, cost-effective way for ILECs/CLECs to leverage their IP network to provide voice service. SIP trunks deliver a significant return on investment and REDCOM’s Carrier-Class 4/5 softswitches have extensive SIP trunking capabilities to ensure that your switching resources fit your business model for current and future growth.

    To get started with SIP trunking, all that is required is an IP network with a REDCOM HDX, SLICE 2100, or Sigma Core software and you will be on your way to implementing robust SIP trunking capabilities. SIP trunks are used to connect two switches together. As long as each switch has an IP address, communication can be made from one point to the other. With proper network assessment planning and implementation, SIP trunks can deliver high quality and reliable service with substantial cost savings.
