Citel Intros SIP Trunking
Mike Robinson, CEO of Citel, said: “Distributed enterprises need a better solution for connecting branch offices and remote workers. By combining our EXTenders with SIP trunking, distributed enterprise customers can literally get more for less. More features, more productivity, and more reliability at lower operating cost than today’s PSTN-based solutions.”
Lower Operating Costs
Citel’s SIP trunking voice solution includes Citel’s PBXgateway (I or II) at the central PBX site, and Citel EXTender 4100, 6000, IP6000, or 7000 at remote locations. The solution, combined with SIP trunks from a service provider, enables enterprises that conduct operations around the country (or around the world) to reduce their monthly long distance charges by replacing at least one T1 connection within a remote office.
Citel’s SIP trunking voice solution can significantly lower an enterprise’s operating costs by reducing toll charges and intra-company calling. A single voice network eliminates the need to obtain a PRI circuit in one city and extra POTS or PRI circuits in other cities. A single, unified network also eliminates that need for additional PBX or Key systems in larger branch offices. Also, by porting the headquarters’ local numbers to a SIP hoster, it is possible for a company to eliminate extra PRI ports on the headquarter PBX. In addition, the upgrade to T1 lines in each branch office results in higher quality Internet access.
Centralized System and Administration
The SIP trunking voice solution from Citel also results in one dialing plan and voicemail system administered by an enterprise’s headquarters. Branch offices and headquarters gain the same voice features and functionality, including call logging. Headquarters owns and controls remote worker phone numbers, and a single receptionist utilizes presence applications and remote call coverage. A simultaneous ring can also be used for all field workers.
