An integral component of any iPECS solution is the connectivity solution you choose to connect the system to the network.
Connectivity options have changed radically with the introduction of SIP trunks and SIP provides huge benefits to the end user and great opportunities for resellers.
Historically only two choices have been available for connecting your iPECS into the network analogue or digital. While analogue offers a basic low cost option it provides limited functionality and limited opportunity to scale or support larger configurations. Digital or ISDN connectivity has been the primary method of connection offering a variety of basic features such as DDI or support of data connections for videoconferencing.
As communications have shifted to IP utilising LAN infrastrure on the customers site to support telephony and elminating the need for a costly duplicated network big changes in the network have also enabled the delivery of SIP trunks as a great option for connecting your iPECS to the network.
The Ericsson-LG iPECS was designed from the ground up as an IP system and has outstanding capability to integrate the full power and capability of SIP trunks into your business. With this capability Pragma recognised the opportunity for Ericsson-LG resellers to drive adoption of SIP Trunks in the UK market. To ensure that this new technology would be well supported and provide the resilience needed by UK businesses Pragma established Pragma Networks and invested in the technology, support and resources to deliver a trusted SIP Trunk service. With end to end support on the Ericsson-LG iPECS, SIP Trunk and supporting data network resellers can be confident of deliver a SIP based solution they can be 100% confident in.
