IP Direct Connect (IPDC) is a SIP trunking voice termination service that provides voice telephony calls using IP protocols, and creates a voice network across multiple sites. IPDC helps transform sites from analogue to IP based technology, where the PBX or IP PBX is connected to Uniworld’s network over an IP link. All Meridian Customers can keep their existing BT numbers and the service offers full emergency services support.
The equipment includes network conformance tested IPBX equipment or compatible ATA’s.
Companies that have recently installed or upgraded their business telephone systems will be aware of its VoIP capability and will want to make some or full use of the VoIP capability, not only communicate over IP within the enterprise, but also outside the enterprise. A SIP trunk provided by an Internet Telephony Service Provider to connect to the traditional PSTN network is the solution. Unlike in traditional telephony, where bundles of physical wires were once delivered from the service provider to a business, a SIP trunk allows a company to replace these traditional fixed PSTN lines with PSTN connectivity via a SIP trunking service provider on the Internet.
SIP trunks can offer significant cost-savings for enterprises, eliminating the need for local PSTN gateways, costly ISDN BRIs (Basic Rate Interfaces) or PRIs (Primary Rate Interfaces).
Our SIP Trunk service provides a simple, cost effective solution for business customers that want a VoIP Telephone Service for use with their SIP enabled VoIP Phone System, or for use with legacy PSTN and ISDN systems with the use of a SIP VoIP Gateway.
