InfoCom illustrates advantages of SIP trunking replacing ISDN.

Press release from: InfoCom GmbH

Stuttgart, Germany — Because of the general trend towards IP, SIP trunking will prevail in the long term and eventually replace ISDN as it offers a series of advantages: granularity, flexibility and centralisation, that is, cost savings. However, only large enterprises with several distributed offices can really benefit from these opportunities, aggregating the number of channels onto a few sites, instead of maintaining ISDN at all sites. As companies migrate to IP telephony, it makes sense to link an IP PBX to public networks via the same core protocol. In the coming years, carriers’ gradual switch-off of their ISDN networks will add to the current drivers.

These are just some of the key findings of a recent study that InfoCom carried out. The re-search analyses some of the main technical architectures, features and SLAs of the offers of a selection of SIP trunking providers active in Western Europe, including large international providers — targeting mainly large enterprises — as well as local providers targeting mainly SMEs.

The research also highlights the distinct advantage of SIP trunking in terms of granularity and flexibility towards the number of voice channels, as it allows any number of voice channels, unlike ISDN. An additional combined advantage of SIP trunking and IP PBX is also the possibility to centralise the voice channels. Through an underlying VoIP VPN, companies can choose to have IP PBX and SIP trunking only in one central site (or a few main sites). Therefore, as a result of granularity, flexibility and centralisation, companies may achieve significant cost savings.

Finally, a possible future advantage is the support of other SIP-based UC (Unified Communication) applications. Currently UC applications (unified messaging, presence, video conferencing) are confined mainly within a company’s own VPN sites. However, in the future, SIP trunking could enable some of these UC functions to work not only between all the sites of a company — even those not linked via a VPN — but also with third parties.

Despite these clear benefits, the implementation of SIP trunking presents also some disadvantages. First of all, IP migrations usually require a (very) long time to be implemented and therefore also to produce the associated benefits. Besides, the still large number of installed TDM/ISDN PBX as well as compatibility and security issues slow the IP migration processes fur-ther down. As a consequence, overall, InfoCom expects only a gradual and constant growth for SIP trunking over the next years, without any exponential take-off and no swift demise of ISDN or analogue connections.

About this extract: These are some of the results of a recent study conducted by InfoCom surveying SIP Trunking providers about offers currently available for business customers. The study analyses some of the main technical architectures, features and SLAs of SIP trunking providers active in Western Europe.

Stuttgart, Germany — The majority of Western European countries demonstrates a constant erosion of total fixed voice traffic within the past five years, as customers migrate to other communication platforms such as mobile and Internet. Moreover, the rise in VoIP usage, especially in some countries such as France, has not been enough to offset completely the decline. However, in some countries carriers managed to slowdown the decline of or even

Stuttgart, Germany — Since the Vive Digital launch — the ICT initiative launched in 2010 as a consequence of the new Colombian ICT Law of 2009 — fixed broadband increased from about 2 million subscribers in 2010 (about 16% of households) to 4.4 million in 2013, (about 34% of households). Mobile broadband subscriptions have grown from 1.1 million in 2010 (about 9% of households) to 3.8 million in 2013 (about

Stuttgart, Germany — Cloud Single Sign On (SSO) services are a fairly recent innovation in Identity and Access Management (IAM). While SSO in itself has been around for a while as an on-premise solution, many cloud SSO players have launched commercial services only within the past four years. While IAM consists of identity management, access governance and authentication services, some companies offer simply SSO (e.g. Okta, Ping Identity, Symplified). SSO

Stuttgart, Germany — Identity and Access Management (IAM) is still largely deployed on-premise rather than in the cloud, despite this solution is growing in relevance. Many players — such as Dell, IBM, NetIQ and Oracle — are not even directly offering cloud IAM services. In-stead, they sell IAM software, which can be hosted by a customer or a SaaS provider in their own data centres and deployed as a private

Global Trends in SiP Technology Development
Under the global trends where electronic products are getting thinner, multi-functional and low power, the SiP (System in Package) technology has grabbed increasing attention, especially in recent years where the demand for lightweight mobile devices and wearables rises. With the IoT (Internet of Things) era approaching, multi-functional integration and low power consumption are considered essential when selecting an electronic product. Hence, SiP is playing an increasingly important role in the
