Business-SIP Line Upgrade
SIP Trunks Replace Phone Lines -- and You Save Money
The Internet and Voice over IP (VoIP) has disrupted the Telecom market. No longer are people buying T1 lines for $500-$2500 a month. VoIP technology utilizing the SIP protocol has virtually eliminated long distance fees and steeply cut the cost of phone service.
A SIP Trunk is the network that VoIP phones operate over. Unlike conventional copper telephone lines, it is not physical lines but is a service provided over the organization’s Internet connection. A SIP trunk contains Channels, which can be thought of as the phone lines. One channel provides the ability to make or receive a single call. A SIP Trunk can contain a virtually unlimited number of channels. Unlike conventional telephone lines, channels can easily be added or removed based on need. Providers like Leap connect one or more channels to the existing PBX (or to a newer IP-based system) to enable phone calls to be made.
Leap’s Carrier-grade SIP Trunking Solution (along with a 4G Wireless Internet backup) enable businesses to leverage their existing PBX investment while drastically reducing their monthly phone bill. Our solution works seamlessly and supports all PBX types and circuit technologies. It doesn’t matter if your PBX utilizes a T1, PRI, analog lines, POTS, or even the newer models supporting SIP natively. We make it easy to reduce your phone bill and keep your existing PBX! Details and costs of our SIP Trunking are below.

Put simply, a PBX is a multi-line telephone system. It enables users to place calls within the business and to the outside world. The equipment is located in the property’s phone closet. This type of PBX is located on the premises, hence the name ‘premise-based’ PBX. Older PBX’s use POTS (plain old telephone system) lines to make and receive voice calls. These are being phased out and replaced with SIP Trunks and IP-Based PBX’s.
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phones convert sound into Internet Protocol (IP) data packets for transmission through an Ethernet connection. These newer type phones are swiftly replacing the old-style analog phones. Conventional analog telephones convert sound into electrical analog waveforms for transmission through the Public Switched Telephone Network (PTSN). V0IP phones can transmit non-voice data, and have many valuable features (see ‘All Features’ page) that enhance guest services. They are also less expensive than old-style analog systems to operate and maintain.
A Hosted PBX is a software-based multi-line phone system that is located in the Cloud (a simplified metaphor for a professionally managed server in a hardened, secure, data center with redundant power, Internet, climate control, such as found in Amazon or Google data centers). Unlike a premise-based PBX, which is located on the hotel property, the Hosted PBX is located on off-site servers and is accessed through the hotel’s Internet connection.
There is no equipment for the business to repair or manage, and no upgrades to purchase as standards change. It can’t be destroyed by lightning, and 4G cellular backup networks (like Leap Networks requires) keep the system operating even when the Internet connection fails.
Signed into law in 2018, RAY BAUM’S Act emphasizes the importance of sharing precise location information when calling 911, which is invaluable to first responders when locating the caller. This info includes not only an address, but also more specific info such as building number, floor, suite, room, etc. Effective Jan. 6, 2020, all multi-line telephone systems sold must provide this information to Emergency Responders.
A SIP Trunk is the network that the VoIP phones operate over. They are not physical lines, but are a service provided over the company’s Internet connection. One SIP Trunk is a channel and provides the ability to make or receive a single call. Channels can be added or removed based on need.
Providers such as Leap connect one or more channels to the company’s PBX (existing one or a newer IP-based system). This allows for phone calls to be made.
