Moving to CCaaS and UCaaS doesn’t necessarily mean eliminating your SIP trunks or transferring your phone numbers to the cloud. A growing number of providers allow customers to “bring your own SIP,” providing cloud adopters flexible migrations and the ability to leverage multiple cloud services. In this session, we’ll look at the reasons why organizations would want to continue to maintain SIP trunks, even as they shift platforms to the cloud, and the challenges that a bring-your-own SIP strategy presents. Attendees will learn options for using their SIP services as well as best practices for evaluation of providers, migration, operations, and security.

Takeaways:

* Understand options for using SIP trunking, including bring your own SIP models, with UCaaS and CCaaS.
* Identify potential benefits in terms of flexibility and cost.
* Gain insight into emerging SIP-based features available via APIs. Also, learn how SIP services evolve as enterprises move to the cloud.
* Learn best practices for evaluating SIP trunking services and how best to address provisioning, operations, and security of services.
