SIP Trunking And Network Consolidation

While no one company can take credit for the Voice over IP (VoIP) revolution, perhaps no company has done more to make VoIP sound good than Sonus. Over 15 years ago, Sonus engineers developed the industry’s first carrier-class VoIP switch to bridge the old world (TDM) with the new world (SIP), and the rest is history. Today, the world’s leading VoIP providers are Sonus customers, and Sonus VoIP trunking solutions span the globe, delivering over one billion minutes of high-quality VoIP every day.
