In the U.S., a Pacific Northwest state is saving almost $2 million per year by deploying IP Least Cost Routing. A New York-based insurance company has shifted 70,000 calls per week onto its new internal SIP network, saving about 13,000 hours per month of voice traffic which previously had gone to a PSTN carrier. Meanwhile, in Europe, a large manufacturing company is saving 35% of its inter-site communication costs by moving to SIP Trunking.

SIP Trunking is a well-proven technology, with many carriers offering the service, both domestically and internationally. Typical savings from using SIP Trunking can range from 25% to 50%.

SIP, the Session Initiation Protocol, offers the potential to reduce telecom operational cost and complexity, take advantage of new hosted services, and integrate disparate applications via unified communications to improve collaboration. The introduction of SIP session management offers the potential to simplify communications system and policy management by fundamentally rethinking the way organizations deploy and integrate disparate communications applications.

But implementing SIP is not without challenges. IT architects must leverage solid ROI case studies to build tangible business cases to justify investment. They must also address training and interoperability concerns to ensure a successful deployment. Those organizations that meet these challenges stand to reap the benefits of SIP via delivery of new services and/or reduced operating costs.
