Tata launches global SIP trunking service
Tata Communications has today added to its portfolio of unified communications and collaboration (UCC) services with the launch of its SIP trunking service, Global SIP Connect.
The service is designed to replace legacy trunking services with SIP-based PSTN access, and allow enterprise customers to aggregate voice traffic on Tata’s network.
Tata’s Global SIP Connect is compatible with the Microsoft Lync platform and is expected to reduce complexity, as well as deliver significant cost and infrastructure savings.
Anthony Bartolo, SVP of UCC at Tata, said that the company’s global reach and scale are particularly valuable to large international enterprises, and Tata wanted to do more.
“By taking advantage of the combined power of VoIP and cloud, as well as off-net calling, we are enabling large enterprises to manage better, communicate smarter and save more in implementing their global voice requirements,” Bartolo said.
“Global SIP Connect is yet another piece of our unified communications offering in this fast-evolving space.”
The service uses Tata’s global infrastructure, eliminating the need for enterprises to manage numerous domestic and international service providers, and also allows for the easy addition of extra scale and capacity.
Mike Sapien, principal analyst at Ovum, said: “Our research shows that SIP trunking has become one of the major ingredients for multinational corporations, who are consolidating and centralising their global voice and IP telephony assets and moving towards unified communications.”
