SIP Communications

SIP Trunking is the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and streaming media service by which NEC delivers telephone and unified communications features with UNIVERGE BLUE. SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) simplifies the traditional phone system network, eliminating the need for an on-site PBX box, redundant networks, and basic rate interface fees.
