There’s a new SIP trunking play in town, and it offers the relatively new pricing model of charging customers by the number of concurrent lines required, not by seat or extension.
IntelliSIP by VoIP service and system provider Voice Carrier (News - Alert) bases its SIP trunking offering on the number of simultaneous calls that a business makes with the service, not based on how many numbers are in use. This helps reduce costs because trunks can be more in line with what the business actually uses.
IntelliSIPs' flat rate pricing includes all fees, taxes and surcharges with no additional usage charges for unlimited calling in the US, according to the company.
Currently, IntelliSIP has been certified as interoperable with a number of leading business PBX (News - Alert) manufacturers, with all other major vendors in the process of certifying the offering, the company noted in a statement.
The service delivers a number of IP telephony features above and beyond what most alternatives deliver, according to the company, including remote extensions anywhere in the world, private conference bridges, follow-me functionality for remote employees, enhanced security and unlimited U.S. calling.
Voice Carrier's IntelliSIP trunks can replace analog voice lines, T1, PRI and existing SIP Trunks with the enhanced, enterprise-grade VoIP network delivered by IntelliSIP.
"Voice Carrier's unique IntelliSIP pricing, coupled with its ability to extend the functionality of legacy phone systems / PBXs, is a true game changer in the SIP trunking market," said Gary Johnson (News - Alert), CEO and president of Voice Carrier.
He added: “We have gained a lot of momentum with our core telephony resellers who have been installing PBXs for a long time. They now have the capability to go back to all those customers and give them a better priced option, along with the ability to expand their legacy phone system with multiple new features.”
The due diligence and testing that IntelliSIP offers is part of what makes it special, not just the pricing model; the focus on certification with all major PBX offerings is a key element for many customers who are still worried about SIP’s interoperability.
"We integrated Voice Carrier's IntelliSIP trunking product with several of our existing customers' PBX systems, and were extremely pleased with how easy the IntelliSIP product was to 'provision' properly the first time,” said Mickey Kieffer, CEO of telecommunications solution provider Ameritel, in a statement.
“We put our stellar 27-year reputation behind the companies that we partner with,” he added. “As with all of our business partners, we put Voice Carrier through many due diligence tests and they far exceeded our carrier expectations. From our experience, deploying SIP technology can be quite complex, but our experience working with the Voice Carrier technical team and the IntelliSIP product has been exceptionally gratifying.”
