SIP Trunking and UCaaS: Two Trends, One Strategy?Date: Tuesday, September 22, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm ET/11:00 am PT
Duration: 60 minutes
Sponsored by XO Communications, hosted by Enterprise Connect and NoJitter
SIP Trunking services are maturing, and enterprises, in turn, continue to increase their deployment of SIP Trunks as a way of saving money over legacy PRIs. But SIP Trunking isn’t an end in itself; SIP Trunking’s true value is the greater UC functionality and network resiliency it enables—not only for premises-based UC deployments, but also in hybrid scenarios where enterprises leverage Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS).
Whether you’re focused on refining your SIP Trunking strategy—looking to get the lowest cost and best service today—or whether you’re positioning SIP Trunks as part of your broader UC future, this Webinar will help you build the SIP and UCaaS strategy that’s right for you. SIP Trunking expert Dave Stein of Stein Technology Group will be joined by Dan Toomey, Director, Product Management, UC & Voice Solutions, XO Communications, to describe the options that enterprises have today for generating ROI from a move to SIP Trunks, and for exploring your next steps from there.
