The adoption of VoIP is slowly proliferating in popularity thanks to the level of flexibility that it brings for thousands of business owners and regular users alike. In the telecom market, several TELCO companies, if not all, offer their services that are based on VoIP.

These TELCO companies also provide a SIP termination and SIP origination service. For the remainder of the guide, you will be debriefed about everything that needs to be known about SIP termination. Here is Wavetel’s guide on SIP termination.

What is SIP termination?

For the most part, SIP termination is a service that allows you to use VoIP technology in order to make outgoing voice calls to external phone networks around the world. This will include PSTN phone numbers as well as mobile cellular operators.

The tariff for these outgoing calls (in technical terms, this will be known as a SIP termination service) will vary from one VoIP provider to the other, so we are certain that you would do well to dot down the major TELCO companies in your vicinity that provide SIP termination and note down their outgoing call rates.

Additionally, calling rates will also vary depending on the following factors:

  • Country
  • City
  • Mobile operator

One of the reasons why SIP termination is becoming a popular service in the professional world is because of its ability to provide a wide array of communication mediums without incurring additional expenses.

When talking about its service to communicate on a broader level, SIP termination provides features such as:

  • Video conferencing
  • Voice calls
  • Streaming media
  • Instant messaging
  • Playing online games

The aforementioned services being offering by SIP termination allows small and medium sized businesses to take complete advantage in terms of expanding their communications with other businesses and clients.

What is the difference between SIP Termination and SIP Origination?

Unlike SIP termination, which is often referred to as outbound calling, SIP origination (or inbound calling) is a service that allows users to receive incoming calls to a VoIP device (the VoIP devices can range from soft-phones, IP phones or even IP-PBX). In majority of the cases, numbers can be dialed from any PSTN or mobile phone and the call will instantaneously be forwarded to your SIP user or IP address, and as a result, you will comfortably be able to answer that call via VoIP phone or SIP device. An example will provide a better understanding on how this works.

Suppose that your office is currently present in the UK, but your clientele is residing in the United States. In order to get cheap rates on both sides, SIP termination and origination services are used to facilitate this process, hence bringing a call from a VoIP device to another VoIP device (or any communication medium) at any location in the globe.

As stated before, SIP termination is used to allow users to make calls to any part of the globe. The service happens to be thoroughly inexpensive and reliable, and provides the perfect communication environment for any business looking to make healthy relationships with different clients.
