Benefits of 123Net SIP:

  • Dynamic allocation of voice trunks onto data circuits helps avoid wasted bandwidth during periods of no or low call volume;
  • 123Net SIP trunks are delivered only over 123Net data connections, allowing the company to provide an unmatched quality of service; and
  • SIP trunks can be delivered over a standard T1 or also can be delivered over fiber-to-the-premise, Ethernet over copper, WiMax 4G, and microwave point-to-point, allowing the customers to deploy voice over their preferred high-bandwidth data solutions, eliminating the need to retain more traditional voice facilities.
