What is VoIP? Voice-over-IP (VoIP) routes phone calls over the Internet or through any IP-based network. VoIP calls can bypass the traditional circuit-switched telephone network (PSTN), resulting in cost savings and efficiency. Copyright © 2007 - Teleprime Inc. all rights reserved
About SIP SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol. SIP is an application layer control (signaling) protocol for creating, modifying, and terminating sessions with one or more participants. It is widely used as the signaling protocol for VoIP calling and is widely thought of as the standard for VoIP calling. Copyright © 2007 - Teleprime Inc. all rights reserved
What is a SIP trunk? A SIP trunk is a service offered by an ITSP (Internet Telephony Service Provider) that connects a company's PBX to the ordinary telephone system (PSTN) via Internet using the SIP VoIP standard. The name "Trunk" comes from the telecom world, where the PBX was originally physically connected to the PSTN network. Source: wikipedia Copyright © 2007 - Teleprime Inc. all rights reserved
