Connexions is a leading provider of SIP trunks (an alternative to ISDN and PSTN) and associated services. Our first SIP trunk was installed in 2009, since then we have installed several hundred SIP channels. As you can imagine we have a wealth of experience in providing and supporting VoIP applications. Over the past 5 years we have learnt from our successes, but we have learnt far more from our mistakes.
Our core platform has evolved extensively over the years from a single application with limited connectivity, to a multi-sited platform with multiple carrier interconnects and multiple ISP interconnects.
A hosted carrier may have the best list of features at the most attractive price; but our experience over the last few years suggests that the two most important aspects of hosting voice applications are:
a) Connectivity: If the connection from your offices to the hosted application is not up to the required standard the application will not work.
b) Core application: Replicating the hosted application is paramount. Connexions core voice application is spread between 3 data centres in and around London and we have no single point of failure within the application.
Connexions IP: This is a hosted telephony application installed within our already extensive SIP trunking platform. Connexions IP has all the features demanded by the telecoms market.
Licences: Are per user and not per device enabling you to use the device you want, when you want and where you want, i.e. hardwired phone or PC software client at your desk, mobile phone, or iPad (Wi-Fi connected) anywhere in the world. You will never miss a business call again.
Phones and software: You are spoilt for choice. Connexions has a range of equipment you can purchase or rent from us, or you can buy from elsewhere, however we will only provide support on phones and software we installed. Reliability is the key to the deployment and on-going support of any hosted application.
Connectivity: Is paramount to the success of deploying a hosted application no matter if it’s for a single user or SME client. Connexions has a long established and reputable history for supplying data connectivity for voice applications. If the connectivity profile doesn’t fit we won’t be supplying the application.
Number Porting: You need a full service wrap; we have our own porting desk. There is a one off charge for number porting and we do not charge a recurring rental for managing numbers
Number Provision: Connexions have an extensive range of UK numbers covering 90% of the UK we can also provide international numbers. We charge a one off fee for numbers and we don’t charge a recurring rental for managing numbers.
