In North Carolina Carolina Digital Phone offers the ability of reducing communication cost by utilizing a SIP enabled IP PBX phone system instead of a traditional PSTN PBX network is the first advantage people think of when switching to an IP based PBX phone system. Essentially phone calls made over an IP network are free. Typically an IP PBX by-passes the wholesale charges made by the incumbent telephone company. (AT&T, Verizone, Qwest, SBC, Bell South and Sprint) This by-pass occurs as the customer is connected to a SIP enabled trunk provider, via an broadband Internet circuit like a data T1 line, as opposed to multiple telephone lines to the incumbent phone company’s switch. The SIP provider will use the Internet to by-pass the long distance and international charges as long as the distant end party is connected through a SIP enable connection. For example, an international call that is placed over an IP PBX will be carried on the IP network from the point of origin to a break outpoint in a foreign country. The SIP provider will incur its capital costs of the IP infrastructure and only the wholesale charge for the foreign national leg of the call. Previously, the service provider would have to pay charges to the local phone company, an international carrier and the foreign carrier. The end result is long distance and international call charges are significantly lower than traditional phone companies.
