RCOM has been a pioneer in launching India’s first and only Enterprise SIP Trunking Service powered by IP Multimedia Sub-system. RCOM’s focus on IP Voice and its ability to meet complex requirements using the underlay of SIP Trunking have helped the telco carve out a thought leadership position in the category, particularly for businesses that are keen on fast-tracking their digital journeys,” said, Manoj Menon, Managing Director of Frost & Sullivan, APAC.
Launched in 2016, Reliance SIP Trunk is India’s first Enterprise SIP Trunking Service to be powered by the IP Multimedia System (IMS). It is a highly scalable IP Voice Service designed for Enterprise use in both internal and external communications, providing companies with an easy means to transition from traditional TDM telephony to futuristic IP Voice.
Unlike traditional telephony that works on ‘lines’, SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) Trunking operates on IP ‘sessions’.
