sip signaling


Should you be bothered about sip signaling?  Only if you’re an IT Manager! 
If you aren’t then just accept that sip signaling is the newest buzz word in telecommunications.

sip_signalingThe latest sip technologies use sip signaling for delivering your entertainment, information and communications more speedily than was possible at the turn of the Century.  BT have a project called 21CN that aims to deliver sip signaling to all homes and businesses before many more years are past.  (Probably by 2016 at the last count)  sip_signaling.pdf

The question you have to ask yourself is: when do I consider having sip signaling instead of what I’ve got now? sip_signaling_-_platinum

The easy answer is talk to the advisors at TelephoneSystemsDirect on 0800 652 8052.  We’ll tell you, quite frankly, that today is not the time to be on the “bleeding edgeâ€.  Let the dust settle and others suffer until the whole UK infrastructure has been implemented and the engineers can support it 24/7.  OK there are parts of Britain where it is sensible to convert to sip signaling – BUT you’re probably not in it as this article is written in July 2011.  Call us!

call sip


call_sipTo call sip you’ll need a number of items first:  ADSL to link you into the public network;  a call sip interface to connect your sip device or sip telephone system to the sip trunk; a sip provider.

BT, Cable and Wireless, Gamma Telecom are in the early-to-the-market call sip packages.  At the time of writing there are not many call sip services on offer to the general-public, unless you’re in the area being used as a field trial (i.e. you’ll be on the “bleeding edge†and your experience of call sip sessions may not live up to expectations.

For businesses the call sip conversations might be crucial to success so please be patient and wait until a sip call can have guaranteed quality.  This means all elements of the networks have to have the QOS feature – that prioritises voice packets over common or garden internet web pages or videos.

0800 652 8052 connects you to TelephoneSystemsDirect whose advisors can tell you about voip – sip call phone systems and how you can make them now.

network sip


network_sipThe benefits of network sip are slowly being realised in business as this article is being penned (July 2011). 

Where network sip is transforming businesses is in the delivery of multi-media services to the desk top through structured cabling.  Now we are communicating with our customers and clients by email, texting, voice and conferencing sessions. With network sip we can enjoy high definition video conferences or on a one-to-one basis through our laptop computer.

network_sip_-_platinumMany firms will have to consider investing in bringing their telephone systems into the twenty-first century to be able to benefit from this latest revolution in communications.  Fortunately at TelephoneSystemsDirect we can cut the costs for you in network sip.  Samsung’s award winning OfficeServ7000 series were the BEST BUY (What to Buy for Business magazine) only a year ago – we think they still are as you can have sip trunks and extensions easily by adding additional licences.

Our 25% discounts on the entry-level OfficeServ7030, OfficeServ7100, OfficeServ7200 and even the Enterprise class OfficeServ7400 slashes the cost of network sip.  Dial 0800 652 8052 for more information on network sip.  network_sip.pdf

sip technology


sip_technologyToday sip technology is transforming the way we receive our entertainment, information and most importantly, our communications.

SIP technology is improving on the integrated services digital network (ISDN) and broadband that we’ve become dependent on for the best part of ten years – it really is only since the turn of the century that we have been using ADSL for accessing the Internet. Do you actually remember when we got Bluetooth, VoIP, Twitter, Facebook, 3G, and video on demand?

sip_technology_-_platinumBT is trying to deliver sip technology to every home and business in the UK – that’s the primary objective of its 21st CenturyNetwork project.  It’s probably the middle of the 2010’s before they complete it.  In the meanwhile you’ll be wondering if it is the moment for you take advantage of new sip technologies.

Ring 0800 652 8052 and speak to the advisors at TelephoneSystemsDirect where we can help you to understand how sip technology can be beneficial, and how to go about implementing it.  sip_technology.pdf

sip voip provider


sip_voip_providerThe competition for best sip voip provider will be between British Telecommunications, Cable and Wireless, and Gamma Telecom in the UK.

These sip voip providers have national networks that carrying billions of bytes of data daily through their microwave links and fibre optic cables – these are delivering Internet information, Video on Demand, as well as Voice-over-IP communications.  Soon (that’s by about 2016 we think in July 2011) every home and firm in England, Scotland, Wales & northern Ireland is going to be bombarded with offers as each sip voip provider vies with the others to win our custom for their sip lines and service packages.  sip_services.pdf

Today, if you’re not in a major town or city, the sip voip provider will not be concerned with you.  This means you won’t benefit from the government’s promise to provide high-speed internet to each house in the country – OK, someday it will happen.

So when a sip voip provider does send you an offer, do you accept it?  YES – only if it’s cheaper for you because they will have trained all their engineers by then and the infrastructure will be up and running.  They are very keen to recoup their huge investment as quickly as possible.

sip implementation


sip_implementationBefore you make a commitment to a sip implementation ring 0800 652 8052.

Your sip implementation has to guarantee that all your calls are going to be perfect, and not put in danger by being routed through a non-QOS part of a public network.  QOS is the feature of voice-over-IP networks that prioritise voice packets over data.  You won’t mind waiting a few seconds while a web page appears – but this is not very desirable when you’re trying to hold a client conversation using a VoIP channel.

sip_implementation_-_platinumTo ensure your sip implementation lives up to your high expectations, give the advisors at Telephone Systems Direct a call on 0800 652 8052.  They’ll chat to you frankly about if the time is actually ripe for you to implement sip, or to wait a little while.  It really does depend on a number of factors – on the date this article is published – the type of ISDN circuit you have (ISDN2 or ISDN30)? who is your Broadband provider? where you are in the UK? what class of phone systems you have ?…..and a few more.  sip_implementation.pdf

sip qos


sip_qosTo get sip qos you need to talk to us on 0800 652 8052.

What is sip qos?  The two TLA’s (that’s three letter acronyms) stand for Session Internet Protocol and Quality of Service.  To put it bluntly – sip qos – one is really no good without the other – and even that is not strictly true – VoIP delivered through non-QOS networks is akin to the early days of radio communications – you had to wait for the other person to finish and say “over†before you speak. Speech happens in real-time.  Delays in data packets don’t worry you significantly when waiting for a web page – buy seems like ages if you want to hear your customer’s next word.  sip_qos.pdf

sip_qos_-_platinumSIP QOS prioritises voice.  Unfortunately at the time this article is being penned (July 2011) sip qos is not implemented throughout the UK.  BT is striving to do it, but it may well be the middle of the 2010’s before sip qos is available to everyone.  It will be to the major business centres, obviously!  In the meanwhile it is possible for other providers to offer you sip qos now by routing your broadband circuit into their network for onwards transmission.

By dialling 0800 652 8052 you can chat to our advisors who are primed about sip qos and ways in which we can deliver it to you at the right price.
