Scale up and down when you want

SIP trunks are ideal if you are moving, upsizing or downsizing and want to keep your existing numbers. Scale up lines during busy periods and back down again afterwards. You can add lines, take them away, split calls at any time. You are always in control.

Built-in Business Continuity

SIP trunks can handle emergencies easily. They are inherently disaster recovery / business continuity ready, letting you reroute calls to an alternative location quickly and easily.

My business issues

Here are just some of the current business issues we encounter with our customers where we can really help.

Business Continuity

Did you know that Green Flag Breakdown research found that one week of bad weather in 2013 was estimated to have cost UK businesses over £318million and 51 million working hours in lost productivity because business continuity plans hadn't been put in place? Scary statistics. But should disaster happen, you can use SIP trunking to minimise disruption to your business. For example, if your London branch has to close in an emergency, and you need the calls routed to Manchester immediately, F One SIP Trunks can do this and at no extra charge to you.

Multi-site line rationalisation

If your business has multiple sites with ISDN connections into each, using F One SIP Trunks you can reduce the number of ISDN connections that your business requires and also reduce the maintenance costs on all of your various PBXs.

At the remote sites you are left with just the cost of an IP connection and the handsets that you need and you can then pull all the telephony traffic back into your centralised PBX.

Seasonality

SIP trunks are valuable for businesses with seasonal voice capacity requirements where more lines can be quickly and easily implemented with no long term commitments, for example when running sales campaigns.

Moving office

Number flexibility with SIP trunking means that you can keep your existing number, even when moving out of the area, saving you costs on printed company literature and stationery whilst maintaining the perception that you still have a presence in the area you've moved from.

We can easily transfer your old or existing numbers too so that you can avoid expensive Remote Call Forwarding (RCF) or call diversion charges.

Flexible number display

Decide which number you want to display on a call by call basis! Great for contact centres. Use CLI flexibility to present your preferred number on your outbound SIP trunk calls.
