T-Systems Launches SIP Trunk Service

August 07, 2017

Big businesses tend not to grow in a uniform way.

Over time, branch offices pop up like mushrooms. Each of those offices may look at least a little different from the others. And, in some aspects, they may operate independently. Just look at your typical branch office phone system. Many branch offices have their own PABXs and phone lines.

However, multi-location businesses can save time and money by consolidating their organizations’ phone systems so they operate and can grow more like trees. In this case, the branch offices are still unique – like the different branches on a tree. But the phone solutions are all part of a larger whole. And that can make a business more grounded, just like trees.

This mushroom-to-tree-type conversion is possible through the deployment of SIP trunking. And T-Systems (News - Alert) has recently introduced a new solution of this kind called Corporate SIP International. It enables organizations to manage their telephone services centrally and to cut down their operating expenses in the process. Organizations can save money and headaches by using Corporate SIP International because it frees their IT departments from having to contract for, install, maintain, and manage local lines for each of their locations.

Instead, a centralized SIP gateway puts all external voice traffic from all sites on the company VPN. And T-Systems supplies one bill and one contract for that. (Although businesses have the option of receiving separate billing for each country).

Charges are based per voice channel. And all channels are charged for the same in all countries.

This service can support up to 50,000 parallel external phone calls concurrently. Users can keep their existing phone numbers. And security, which T-Systems enables via enterprise session border controller technology, is part of the solution.

T-Systems is a Deutsche Telekom (News - Alert) subsidiary. It offers a variety of services related to the cloud, connectivity, the Internet of Things, security, and telecommunications in a variety of European countries. That includes Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
