What is SIP Trunking?

What is SIP Trunking? SIP Trunking replaces conventional TDM-based carrier interconnection on PRI (T1 or E1) connections with direct interconnection of VoIP communications between Enterprise IP-PBXs and the PSTN via a SIP carrier. It uses the SIP standard for call control and provides the advantage that you can combine all forms of traffic (voice, data, video) on a single connection to the service provider. This is significantly lower cost than separate data and voice connections and provides far greater flexibility. In fact SIP can provide call control for all types of traffic on the connection (though the available bandwidth varies by carrier). Security is provided at the boundary by means of a SIP-aware firewall, plus Call Admission Control (CAC) to provide high-quality voice connections.

SIP trunking has the advantage that SIP trunks come in units of one channel, unlike T1 (23 channels) or E1 (31 channels), which are often more than needed for branch offices. By consolidating all the business requirements in one location (e.g. the data-center) significant savings can be made. In addition, some carriers offer burst-able mode SIP trunks, where, for a small fee, additional capacity can be instantly provided to cover short-term traffic peaks.

The ability to use a common connection for voice, data and video is important — not just for cost savings, but also for deployment of unified communications (UC) solutions. Many legacy services require separation of these media (voice vs. data). UC assumes they are unified. So, using a single pipe makes sense.

SIP trunking is now a well-proven technology, with many carriers offering this service for both domestic and international traffic.

When your connection carries important, time-sensitive content, the answer is a dedicated, facilities-based Private Line from major carriers.
Our service provider’s Point-to-Point Private Line services provide high-speed, dedicated point-to-point connectivity for voice, data, and video applications. Typically consisting of non-switched communications circuits and the required equipment to connect two or more locations, Carrier Private Line has long-haul and local circuits available in a variety of configurations.



Data connectivity outside the metro areas has a unique set of challenges. Any time a customer location is more than 15 miles from the nearest POP, connectivity becomes cost-prohibitive compared to the same service in an area with more dense telecom infrastructure. Because of the distance sensitivity of most local loop pricing, customers in tier 2 and tier 3 cities as well as rural areas find themselves more vulnerable to high connectivity pricing compared with companies in major metropolitan areas. ECTtelecom has changed all that with our selective service providers.


Nobody is better than ECTtelecom at providing connectivity outside the metro areas at competitive prices. Our customers get the following services in tier 2 & tier 3 cities as well as rural areas:

  • Private line
  • Dedicated internet access
  • Out-of-region MPLS


If you’re like most of our partners, you will quickly discover that Nitel is the best provider for:

  • Long loops
  • Connections that cross LATAs
  • Rural IP, MPLS and private line
  • Connectivity between two ILECs
