Converge Voice and Data with IP Trunking
Transform the traditional voice-only trunk into a converged voice and data IP connection. Cisco Managed IP Trunking uses Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), which allows for the crucial connection between the customer premises equipment (CPE) and your network.
Increase Cost Savings with IP Trunking
Cisco Managed IP Trunking services using SIP offer:
- Decreased costs: Converged IP trunking eliminates the need for costly time-division multiplexing (TDM) CPE and support.
- Improved installation and configuration times: Interoperability testing integrated into Cisco configuration tools simplifies installation activities.
- Interoperability with SIP-based softswitch network infrastructures: Conformance to SIP standards now facilitates interoperability with leading third-party SIP-based softswitches.
- Managed voice services: Facilitate voice transport between offices and centralized PSTN connectivity.
- Ideal foundation for future advanced IP communications services: SIP-based converged access helps enable future service delivery (such as presence and mobility) and revenue opportunities.
- Cisco network innovation: The Cisco Powered Program IP Trunking designation lets you use Cisco network differentiators and value-added innovations to help ensure service quality, reliability, and flexibility.
Build a Next-Generation Services Foundation
A managed SIP trunk is an IP trunk that uses SIP as the control protocol. It directly connects a CPE IP PBX to your service-level agreement (SLA)-based IP network. The SIP trunk carries both voice and data traffic between the customer premises and the network.

Cisco Managed IP Trunking takes advantage of the fact that the trunk is converged and that SIP is the control protocol. Managed IP trunking using SIP offers:
- Converged voice and data on an access circuit
- Direct IP connection between an IP PBX or key system and an SLA-based IP network
- Call control provided via SIP
- Eliminated need for IP-TDM translations
- Foundation for next-generation network (NGN) services (fixed mobile convergence, web conferencing, and other multimedia services)
