Over the Top SIP Trunks
Over the top means it uses your general internet pipe for phone system dialtone delivery. SIP Trunks are quickly become the future of dialtone delivery as copper is being priced and not maintained to extinction. Since SIP trunks can be made from free software, someone with a PC, free software, and some phone service can resell SIP trunks. Thus there are many dangerous places to obtain SIP trunks from. There are hundreds of options available that can nickle and dime the price. Many can get by fine on the base packages or close to it.
NEC is our new favorite SIP Trunk Provider
For years NEC SIP trunks were just for NEC customers. As long as the dealer does their own support (like we do) NEC now allows us to sell these for other systems. PSB offers inexpensive gateways that can easily generate classic POTS, PRI to most all systems. SIP Trunks directly to the pbx are still a bleeding edge technology and matching a provider to a pbx for other brands is usually not cost effective for us to offer. Note that fax is tricky (we offer via a POTs gateway) and modems are NOT really supported or advised over anyone's Sip Trunk.
Your internet quality is key to a happyness using SIP Trunks. If your internet pipe is not golden we offer several initial and multi-day tests we run before we offer to provide SIP Trunks.
