Editor’s Bottom Line of Bandwidth
Bandwidth’s SIP Trunking services provide a greater level of control and flexibility not found in most providers on the market. Since Bandwidth owns their own nationwide, all-IP network, they can provide users with enhanced management and administrative control. Of course, one of the main selling point of Bandwidth’s SIP Trunking service is the inherit cost savings that come from utilizing a SIP Trunking service of standard or analogue telephone connections. Overall, SIP Trunks are not only less expensive than analog circuits, but they also maintain the same level of service quality we have come to expect from standard telephony solutions.
Unlike most vendors, Bandwidth does not share their pricing on their website and instead requests that prospects directly contact a sales agent to learn more about the multiple pricing models available. This also brings the added benefit of truly custom-tailored solutions and platforms. Bandwidth’s service of course includes all the necessary features for a complete SIP solution, including toll-free number support, both domestic and international long-distance calling, and even E-911 support. To ensure nothing goes wrong, or that when things do go wrong users can receive the help they need, Bandwidth provides 24/7 support, 365 days a year.
Your organization can also have piece of mind with Bandwidth’s platform, knowing that the provider powers some impressive customers and solutions, including aspects of Skype, RingCentral, UberConference and even Google Voice. Overall, Bandwidth’s SIP Trunking solution offers a seamless integration with an existing IP PBX, to carry over existing functionality while expanding the solution at the same time. In fact, Bandwidth offers interoperability with the vast majority of IP PBX available around the world.
