Consolidated Trunking – Is It Right for Your Company?

September 11, 2014

Finding the telephony solution that best fits your business is beneficial, as it allows your company to be more cost effective, efficient, and reliable. There’s a lot to contemplate when choosing the solution that tailors to your business needs.

Finding the telephony solution that best fits your business is beneficial, as it allows your company to be more cost effective, efficient, and reliable. There’s a lot to contemplate when choosing the solution that tailors to your business needs. Are you looking for a cloud-based service or do you prefer having your solution hosted on site? How fast is your company growing? Do you often add or remove any of your services?

One option to consider is consolidated trunking. Rather than each location of your business having its own trunks, you may choose to centralize call control with a consolidated trunking service in a central data center. This option allows companies to limit the number of locations with trunking services and increases the trunk bandwidth. Another major benefit of a consolidated service is the ability to deploy new unified communications (UC) applications in a central location and distribute throughout the company network from there. This cuts down on the time to market due to the simplification of the network design.

However, consolidated trunking is only one option for your telephony solution – make sure you do your homework to decide which choice makes sense for you.
