Armenia’s largest mobile operator, VivaCell-MTS (News - Alert), has announced a new SIP Trunk tariff plan to enable businesses to reliably take advantage of VoIP calling. The plan lets companies make free calls in network and take advantage of special tariffs for on-net calls priced at a fixed monthly fee.

The new calling plan assigns users with mobile phone numbers and the ability to make up to 10 simultaneous calls using a PBX (News - Alert) and IP phone. The SIP Trunk plan has two subscription options for up to 10,000 minutes of talk time at reliable monthly subscription pricing.

“SIP Trunk is yet another innovative solution designed for organizations,” said Ralph Yirikian , general manager of VivaCell-MTS (News - Alert). “This tariff plan was developed in response to the market demand for integrated solutions based on IP technologies and is ideally suited to organizations that value effective, affordable and reliable communication. We diversify our products to meet the needs of our subscribers.”

SIP trunking has become a popular option for SMBs that want a variety of phone service features as well as scalability, at a low and predictable price point. OneStream Networks just announced its SIP trunking service is compatible with ShoreTel’s (News - Alert) popular line of IP phone systems and UC offerings, providing a variety of choices for its global customer base in more than 65 countries.

And Omantel, the largest telecom provider in the Sultanate of Oman, launched its own SIP trunking services this week, geared toward corporate customers. The new service is being offered at three different tiers to serve up to 30 channels.

North America remains the largest market for SIP trunking services, but other regions are starting to play catch up as network operators overcome interoperability and regulatory hurdles. Infonetics (News - Alert) forecasts the worldwide SIP market will reach $8 billion by 2018, fueled by growth in new geographic markets as well as increased uptake of SIP and UC solutions by organizations of all sizes.
