SIP Telephone Lines from Birmingham Telecom
SIP telephone lines are rapidly replacing ISDN services and Birmingham Telecom is fast becoming one of the UK’s leading SIP providers. Our SIP telephone lines connect your site directly into our network via an IP connection to carry and terminate your inbound and outbound voice calls across the public telephone network.
Birmingham Telecom SIP provides a highly-flexible alternative to ISDN and is compatible with all the leading IP PBX brands in the UK market, giving you peace of mind that your PBX hardware works with the network service.
Compared to ISDN, our SIP telephone lines are cheaper on a per-channel basis and more flexible in terms of what telephone numbers you can have and the locations in which you can have them. SIP is quicker to install and offers a robust business continuity service to ensures your business never loses calls.
We can support connections starting from two channels for businesses with small PBXs, with no limit on the total number of channels we can deploy.
SIP Telephone Lines are virtual telephone lines, created over your internet connection. By connecting your business to our telephone network via the internet, SIP offers you great flexibility and large savings over traditional telephone line types.
SIP Telephone Lines are now the fastest growing telephony service in the world. They are a reliable, cost-effective voice service both cheaper and more flexible than traditional digital or analogue phone lines.
Millions of people already have first-hand experience of VoIP through services like Skype that can be used to make free or low cost calls over the internet. Such services have grown in sophistication and reliability and are now widely used on a daily basis for both voice calls and data in the modern day workplace.
Through a single internet connection, SIP allows you to divide your bandwidth between voice calls and data. This means that the development and falling prices of SIP Telephone Lines has made VoIP a viable option for businesses.
With the announcement that BT are phasing out the traditional network by 2025, SIP Telephone Lines are here to help future proof your business whilst saving you a significant amount of money on your existing line rental and call costs.
Our SIP telephone lines can be scaled up or down in line with demand and without the need for additional physical line installation. Being great for flexible working practices, this provides the ability to integrate a home worker with a SIP based phone system.
Birmingham Telecom are able to supply you with business grade SIP telephone lines that have been tested extensively with all major telephone systems and receiving full accreditation with our key partner Panasonic.
In the event of a disaster or line fault, calls can automatically be routed anywhere else or to another PBX that is already SIP enabled.

Does your business have multiple sites? Do you have an ISDN connection into an individual PBX at each site? Using SIP telephone lines you can reduce the number of ISDN connections that your business requires and also reduce the maintenance costs on all of your various telephone systems. At remote sites you are left with just the cost of an IP connection and the handsets that you need.
You can then pull all the telephony traffic back into your centralised PBX. You can also benefit from increased resilience by building an automatic failover system into your communications strategy for lines and calls should your main site go down. With SIP trunks you can instantly centralise and distribute the calls somewhere else, to another site or to homeworkers, for example.
Number flexibility with Gamma SIP Trunks 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 to Birmingham Telecom SIP telephone lines so that you can avoid expensive Remote Call Forwarding (RCF) or call diversion charges.
