What is a SIP?

A SIP Trunk is a facility provided by Voiceflex that allows the placing of outbound calls and the receiving of inbound calls using an internet connection, rather than using an ISDN line. Calls to and from the PSTN are supported. They are fast becoming the standard technology that allows businesses to make and receive telephone calls without the need for an expensive ISDN circuit. The Quality of Service (QoS) has contributed to its increasingly widespread adoption. Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is used to set-up and 'tear-down' telephone calls over IP networks, including the internet. It is this VoIP protocol that is most widely supported by modern devices, including IP-enabled PBXs.

Why use it?

Having separate voice & data networks is a legacy from the technology used for voice and how data connectivity has grown to provide huge amounts of throughput for everyday communication. The switch from voice networks carrying data, to data carrying voice is a reconvergence of voice & data after a 20 year split. As the withdrawal of ISDN has been announced, voice networks move more and more towards SIP. We began this move 10 years ago, as it appeared obvious that true convergence was always going to happen. Voice & data convergence reduce cost and enables better functionality, bringing modern day flexibility to voice.

Numbers - UK & International

Shore Communications can provide UK numbers covering the whole of Great Britain. All ready to instantly provision and commission onto your PBX. Need international numbers? They can also be ordered and delivered by SIP.

Number Porting

Moving location or just want to move to SIP? You can keep all your numbers which will be moved over to Shore Communications. We realise your numbers are important to you, so a dedicated provisioning team look after the process.

Fraud Detection

Vital for any business with call traffic due to the risk of fraudulent activity within the industry which is not just limited to SIP. Fraud is not new to the telecoms industry but Shore Communications approach to managing the risk of fraud is. Included in the price of a SIP Trunk are two of the best methods in operation in the market today. We haven't eradicated fraud but we have provided piece of mind that should you be the target of fraud your account will warn you and automatically be suspended.

Auto Failover & Disaster Recovery

If your PBX doesn't respond or register we can automatically route the call to an alternative number landline, mobile or PBX. If you have multiple DDI numbers we can route each individual number to a different number. Find out that your PBX is down before your customers do. Monitoring and recovering from a number of voice issues can easily be setup on the Shore Communications SIP Lines.


Our SIP Lines support T.38 fax protocol to end user devices. If you need to use T.38 please let us know and we will enable the configuration for you at no extra charge. If your PBX does not support T.38 you may experience problems sending and receiving faxes over VoIP lines. Shore Communications are able to offer a Fax2email service which will allow you to receive faxes direct to your email inbox.


Allowing all types of communication; voice, data & video to use the same network has been around for many years. The efficiencies can be great, but it must be integrated correctly. Shore Communications have a strong background in converging your network.
