Canadian companies that deploy Allstream’s SIP trunking service realize there are huge benefits in moving to next-generation voice technologies, so there’s little wonder the World Communications Awards are beginning to recognize it too.
Allstream recently made the shortlist in the Best Enterprise Service category of the 2013 WCAs, which are celebrating 15 years of highlighting transformative innovations in telecommunications. The awards will be handed out this December in London, U.K.
Allstream’s nomination was focused on a Canadian service provider first – SIP trunking over Internet with “Class of Service” (CoS) routing, allowing IT departments to prioritize voice traffic over data and ensure calls come through without any jitter, latency or echo. Previously CoS on SIP trunking was available only to large organizations using MPLS networks, and so CoS over Internet provides small and mid-sized organizations increasing access to enterprise capabilities.
Though Allstream was the first national telecommunications carrier to offer SIP trunking in Canada, it has been consistently enhancing and improving the service. Along the way, the company has also been helping educate technology professionals on the opportunities SIP trunking presents through Webinars, white papers and its popular SIP Trunking eBook. Expect to see a lot more posts on the topic on expertIP. After all, industry recognition is flattering and appreciated, but winning customers remains the best validation.
