Call 48 Explains What a SIP Address Is and How to Get One

If you are new to SIP reselling then you may not know you have a SIP address. Here Call 48 explains what a SIP address is, where to find it and what it does. SIP or Session Initiation Protocol is used to initiate or terminate live communication sessions from phone calls to instant messaging. 

A SIP address is similar to an email address as it serves as a locator of the user and even looks like an email address. Like email addresses, they are comprised of two parts: a username, and a domain. For example, if your name was Sam, you might have the following identical SIP and email addresses: Sam@voipreseller.com and sip:Sam@voipreseller.com. Your SIP address allows you to participate in SIP based communication over the Internet. 

What makes SIP address even more powerful is that it is personal like an email address. While a telephone number is registered to a specific device, a SIP address follows the person it belongs to. This gives SIP users access to new features that standard landline telephone services simply do not offer. With the increasing prevalence of VoIP in the corporate and consumer markets comes the gradual migration from the use of telephone numbers to the use of SIP addresses.

The easiest way to obtain a SIP address is by creating an account with an online service. Like creating an email account with Google or Yahoo, you will be provided with an address (i.e. yourname@gmail.com). However, your SIP service provider may allow you to create SIP addresses within your own domain as well (i.e. me@thisisme.com). Call 48 allows customers to use the registered domain name of their companies to create SIP addresses free of charge.

Those using standard telephones can reach you on your SIP address, all you need is a regular telephone number which forwards to your address. If you want to call people who are using regular telephones, your SIP service needs the ability to call out to regular telephone numbers, and Call 48 can provide you with one or both of these services.

Glossary of Acronyms Terms and Hosted PBX VoIP Definitions

PBX is an abbreviation for Private Branch Exchange, a private telephone network used within an enterprise. Did you know what PBX actually stood for? At Call 48 we know that VoIP technology is always upgrading and evolving to meet the needs of customers and because of this, new usages, terms and definitions are always emerging. Here Call 48 helps you navigate all the latest cloud-hosted PBX terms and definitions that virtual companies will use.

ACD (Automatic Call Distribution): A system that allows representatives to speak to callers in the order that they call. If you’ve ever called somewhere and had an automated teller announce that “your call will be answered in the order in which it was received,” you have experienced ACD.
Asterisk: Free, open-source software that runs under Linux, Mac OS X, and several variants of Unix on computers powered by x86, PowerPC, and other processor types. Provides PBX capabilities for VoIP and (with appropriate interconnection hardware) digital and analog telephone systems.
Automatic callback: This term can refer to a PBX feature that lets employees calling from outside the office avoid long-distance charges. The employee places a short call to the PBX, which calls the individual back using an inexpensive (VoIP) calling plan. Confusingly, the term also refers to a feature that sets a phone to make multiple attempts to reach an unavailable number, alerting the caller when a connection is finally made.
Dial-By-Name Directory:A database that allows callers to use their phone keypads to dial the name of the person they want to reach (e.g. 76484 for SMITH).
DISA (direct inward system access): Service provided by PBX systems that lets authorized personnel dial into the PBX from external phones, so they can, for example, place calls through the PBX.
Hosted PBX: A Hosted PBX system is one that is made available through the internet. Unlike a non-hosted PBX system, your office won’t be required to host telephone equipment because the hosting company does if for you. This will significantly lower the cost while providing the opportunity for easy expansion.
IAX (inter-Asterisk exchange): VoIP signaling protocol that provides for control and transmission of streaming media over IP networks. It enables connections between Asterisk servers as well as between servers and clients.
IP PBX (Internet Protocol private branch exchange): A system that, by using the Internet Protocol over Ethernet networks, provides the same functions as, and often extends the capabilities offered by, traditional PBX installations.
IVR: Stands for interactive voice response and is the part of an auto attendant system that provides voice prompts and information to callers and takes action based on the buttons they press on their phone keypads or their spoken answers.
Porting: The process of moving a phone number to a new telephone service. Contact V1 VoIP to find out about our porting rates.
Ring group: A set of extensions that the PBX rings in the order determined by rules the administrator sets.
SIP (session initiation protocol): A set of IP telephony signaling conventions, mostly used for VoIP, but usable for electronic delivery of any multimedia type.
Trunking: An IP PBX’s process of merging data from multiple calls into a single set of packets to reduce transmission overhead.

Call 48’s Wholesale SIP Termination Guide

V1 VoIP's guide to wholesale SIP termination services solutions including SIP trunking

Call 48 offers carrier grade wholesale VoIP services including premier level SIP termination. SIP termination is one of the product offerings that Call 48 wholesale agents are constantly asking for. SIP termination allows small and medium sized businesses to take complete advantage in terms of expanding their communications with other businesses and clients. Here is Call 48’s guide on all things SIP termination.

SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol. SIP termination is a service that allows you to use VoIP technology in order to make outgoing voice calls to external phone networks around the world. SIP trunking is the use of VoIP to facilitate the connection of a private branch exchange (PBX) to the Internet. In effect, the Internet replaces the conventional telephone trunk. This allows an enterprise to communicate with fixed and mobile telephone subscribers worldwide.

In order to take advantage of SIP trunking, a business must have a PBX that connects to all internal end users, an Internet telephony service provider (ITSP) and a gateway that serves as the interface between the PBX and the ITSP. One of the most significant advantages of SIP trunking is its ability to combine data, voice and video in a single line, eliminating the need for separate physical media for each mode. The result is reduced overall cost and enhanced reliability for multimedia services.

Call 48 wholesale SIP termination provides features such as:

  • Video conferencing
  • Voice calls
  • Streaming media
  • Instant messaging
  • Playing online games
