What we should all know about SIP Trunk
• Primary Advantages & Benefits of SIP
 Fault-Tolerance: Ability to build in different levels of diversity
 Cost-Effectiveness: Barrier to entry is low, as is marginal expense
 Scalability: Easy to add more capacity with SIP
 Flexibility: Lots of options to adjust call bandwidth, call flow, etc.
 Manageability: QControl gives users lots of control over SIP service
 Centralizability:
 One vendor to deal with for PSTN
 Consolidation of PSTN access lines
 Centralized TN management

What we should all know about SIP Trunk
• Sweet spot for SIP opportunities: Customer...
 Has QoS-enabled IP WAN now
 Already has a VoIP solution in place
 Has multiple remote/branch locations with traditional PSTN access
 Views telephony as business-critical to enterprise (e.g., call center)
 Has seasonal fluctuations or other unanticipated call-flow variations

ENGINEERING CONSIDERATION 1
TOTAL SESSIONS REQUIRED
 Determine total session (i.e., trunking) requirements for enterprise
 Methods include:
o Peg counts from traffic study
o CDR data from customer’s PBX
o Rule of thumb method agreed to by customer

ENGINEERING CONSIDERATION 2
SESSIONS REQUIRED BY TYPE
Determine how many sessions by type (Flat or Usage)
o Flat Inbound Call Types (from PSTN) : Local TN, DID
o Flat Outbound Call Types (to PSTN): Local (including 411, 711, 911)
 Usage Inbound Call Types (from PSTN): 8xx, RDID
 Usage Outbound Call Types (to PSTN): LD, Alien TN (non-SIP TN)

ENGINEERING CONSIDERATION 4
TOTAL VOIP BANDWIDTH REQUIRED
 For each access line, determine max sessions
 Determine circuit type / L2 protocol (HDLC, PPP, Ethernet)
 Determine VoIP packet sample size
 Determine Qty of G.711 calls
 Determine Qty of G.729 calls
Determine % of IQ circuit that is for P1 traffic
 Determine % of P1 bandwidth that is VoIP (QVUR)
