Today we are happy to announce BETA testing for our SIPStation Premium SIP Trunks with FreePBX and PBXact systems for existing customers of SIPStation in the US markets.
Premium Trunks introduce several features, the main ones being #1 Encryption and #2 HD codecs.
#1. SIPStation Premium SIP Trunks enable customers to encrypt their communications over the internet, between their IP-PBX location and Sangoma’s data center by using Secure Real-Time Protocol (SRTP) to encrypt the media and Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt the SIP signalling. TLS and SRTP use the Advanced Encryption System (AES) which is a widely adopted standard for encryption of data for VPN, browsing (HTTPS) and communications, amongst other things. This allows businesses with strict information security practices to benefit from both SIP trunks and hosted communications.
#2. As for Codecs, the Premium Trunks introduce support for HD codecs such as G.722 and AMR-WB. To see a full list of codecs click here.
If you are interested in testing Premium Trunks for free, please let us know by completing this short survey. Prior to BETA testing, you need to have in place a valid SIPStation SIP Trunk paid subscription.
