Shoretel SIP Trunking by Flowroute
What are the benefits of Shoretel SIP Trunking by Flowroute?
Back when wireline telephony was the current voice technology, and all telephone calls went through the PSTN (Public Switched Telephony Network), companies would purchase bundled circuits or dedicated lines from a specific service provider. These items were referred to as “trunks”. Today’s Shoretel SIP trunking models are more cost-effective and provide a quicker return on your investment. Plus, they provide enhanced communication capabilities within your company, as well as with your clients/customers, partners, and vendors.
Flowroute offers SIP trunking services for Shoretel that use SIP when setting up communications between an ITSP (Internet Telephony Service Provider) and your PBX system. SIP trunking entails as many voice sessions as needed by your company. Although some individuals look at SIP as only voice capabilities, trunking can also be a starting point for all of your real-time communications with the protocol. This includes app sharing, instant messaging, presence applications, and white-boarding. Consider it to be a vital part of your everyday business communications that keeps the business more productive.

Significant Productivity Benefits
In addition to the above advantages, Shoretel SIP trunking offers some significant productivity benefits as well. For instance, you can extend the corporate network’s SIP capabilities outside the LAN, remote employees, and satellite offices. Even your clients or customers can use VoIP, along with other real-time communication apps, for breaking down geographical barriers, increasing productivity, and sharing ideas.
As with any application that exposes a private network to the internet, there are a number of ways that you can enhance the security of your SIP trunking deployments. Plus, when proper QoS (Quality of Service) measures are applied, voice quality is usually not an issue with SIP trunking. This includes measures such as link over-provisioning and voice traffic prioritization. Since SIP trunking is more reliable than PSTN, because of implemented failover solutions, reliability is now a moot point.
