A specialized collaboration fulfillment solution brings many business advantages to SIP trunking; it greatly simplifies technical and business processes between the enterprise and provider, standardizes the enterprise-wide dial plan with SIP trunking fully integrated into the dial plan, and significantly lowers the total cost of ownership over the lifecycle of SIP trunking service.
Organizations that select an integrated fulfillment solution to manage their SIP trunking and collaboration environment, can expect the following rewards:
- Highly automated – the fulfillment technology integrates across the collaboration applications and SIP trunks and automates the dial plan configuration; radically reducing technical complexity of setting up SIP trunks and maintaining them
- Flexibility –VOSS enables organizations to quickly, easily and cost-effectively make changes to their business and have these flow automatically to their SIP trunk configuration (e.g. adding new locations)
- Scalability – the VOSS management platform will overarch the entire trunking and collaboration environment – no matter how large and complex - and provide a single point of control
- Allows IT to shift focus – VOSS empowers highly skilled IT staff to concentrate on more strategic tasks, rather than having to constantly maintain dial plan changes across the SIP trunks.
Not all management systems can support the above criteria. Most SIP trunking management systems do not have the capacity to manage anything other than the actual SIP trunk. Normally these tools operate at the provider level only, with no benefit to the enterprise.
It is important to select a management architecture that includes the ability to manage both collaboration applications and SIP aggregation layers and is able to manage dial plan and number construction in real-time between these two systems.
