"Business Technology, Made Easy"
Ashcor SIP Trunking Services
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a technical way of saying "digital phone lines". In essence these digital "virtual" phone lines come in over your existing internet connection* and replace the old POTS (Plain Old Telephone System) copper lines from your current provider.
What's the advantage? Well there are many but a quick example will probably give you the gist of it.
With traditional POTS phone systems, if you have 10 employees and you want a minimum of 5 employees to be able to make or receive calls at the same time, you would need to have 5 physical copper lines installed, each with its own individual phone number. Then pay extra for hunt group service that allows anyone calling the busy main number to automatically be switched to the next available line, if one exists.
With SIP, there are no physical lines to install (unless you want to separate your voice and data networks) and you can have an unlimited number of inbound and outbound calls at the same time. There's no additional charge for hunt groups or special features as these are all controlled by your in-house PBX system. Any number of DID's (Direct Inward Dial, a fancy way of saying "phone number") can be assigned to the same SIP trunk, even DID's from other area codes.
For instance, if you have a business located in the NJ 973 area code and begin taking clients from.. say.. California, a local California phone number can be added to your SIP line giving your CA customers a local number to call.
Not sure where your clients will call from? Again no problem, simply add a toll free number and you're all set.
Many SIP Trunk providers charge a large monthly fee for each DID you add but that's not how Ashcor works. After the low initial setup fee, the additional (subject to quantity limitations) DID's are included in your existing monthly service charge.
What happens if your internet connection goes down?
We'll set up all of your SIP Trunks to automatically redirect to any other phone number you choose should your PBX lose connection to the service. You'll never miss a call.
Starting at just $75.00 a month for unlimited local and long distance calling (Continental US and Canada) the Ashcor SIP service and AshCorTel
phone system are the perfect small business voice solution.
*subject to existing available bandwidth and usage. Not all internet access speeds and bandwidths will support quailty VoIP communications.
