A SIP trunk is an IP connection that establishes a SIP communications link between your organisation and an Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP) beyond your firewall. Typically, a SIP trunk is used to connect your organisation’s central site to an Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP). In some cases, you may also opt to use SIP trunking to connect your branch site to an ITSP. An ITSP is a generic term and Comscentre SIP Trunks could also be referred to but the SIP trunks do not traverse the Internet. It is merely to differentiate as a SIP trunk over IP. Although a SIP Trunk over an ITSP has no guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) due to the nature of the internet, Comscentre’s SIP trunks do not by default traverse the Internet and do traverse a private managed WAN connection therefore the quality of the call is more predictable.
Exchange Unified Messaging is used as part of the solution to provide auto attendant functionality, unified messaging to email and voicemail for he telephony solution.
Unified messaging and visual voicemail Lync integrates with the unified messaging features in Microsoft Exchange. Users can see if they have new voicemail using the Lync client or the icon in the notification area. Voicemail is listed in the Lync dial pad for easy access. When Lync is integrated with Exchange Server, the user will also receive an email that has a preview of the voice mail. The user can view the voice mail preview in Microsoft Outlook.
