Your IT Department will want to know this:
Epiphany SIP Trunks from Buckeye Telesystem can be connected to your premise-based phone system via any of the following handoffs:
And you’ll care about this:
It’s all about the network.
Unlike other Internet Telephony Service Providers that route your calls exclusively over the Internet, Buckeye Telesystem gives you a choice. You can:
- Route your calls publicly over the Internet
- Route your calls privately through our state-of-the-art Ethernet Next Generation Network (NGN).
For additional flexibility, we can team with one of our partners to privately route your call traffic from virtually anywhere in the world.
Private routing gives us the highest level of control to ensure that your calls reach their final destination with clarity.
With SIP Trunks (Session Initiation Protocol), you have a choice of bandwidth options: either Elastic or Dedicated Trunks.
Elastic trunks allow your voice and Internet service to be dynamically calculated. When no one is on the phone, you have full Internet bandwidth. As calls are placed or received, Internet bandwidth decreases to accommodate the voice traffic.
Elastic SIP Trunks can be ordered in bandwidths of 2Mb (17 trunks maximum) or 3Mb (23 trunks maximum).
If you need more than 23 trunks or you don’t want to share your Internet bandwidth with your call traffic, Dedicated SIP Trunks are the way to go.
We’ll create unique VLANs for your voice and data, sized to your business’s needs. And no matter how many calls you make or receive, your Internet bandwidth will not fluctuate.
Epiphany SIP trunks can deliver many of the features that are currently available on traditional phone trunks, such as:
- Caller ID
- Call Waiting
- Direct Inward Dial (DID)
- Direct Outward Dial (DOD)
- Call Restrictions
- Auto Attendant
- Voice Mail/Fax Messaging/Unified Messaging
- Reservation-less Audio Conferencing
As your business grows, so can the capabilities of your voice communications system.
If you route your SIP Trunk over Buckeye Telesystem’s private network, your options become virtually limitless.
You can tailor your SIP Trunk bandwidth to exactly the size you need in 1Mb increments up to 100Mb, or in 5Mb increments from 100Mb to 1,000Mb (GigE).
Reduced Call Charges
With ISDN-PRIs, you are limited to purchasing 23 channels at a time, but, with SIP Trunks, you can purchase as many required sessions as you need. And we can provide bandwidth in any 1Mb-increment up to 100Mb.
This gives you precisely the number of simultaneous call sessions you require, without having to pay for additional PRIs.
Some people naturally fear change, but with SIP Trunks from Buckeye Telesystem, there’s nothing to be afraid of.
SIP Trunks can be configured for use with any phone system, so you can keep all of your current features.
The transition to SIP Trunks is seamless. There’s no need to retrain your team, and not even a chance of a nervous breakdown.
When you move away from your premise-based phone system, you can combine your SIP Trunk with a Hosted Station to achieve the ultimate in flexibility and free up some phone closet space. Then you’ll be in the position to migrate to a full-hosted solution on your terms and within your timeline.
