Connectivity has become an everyday, necessary business tool and demand for fast and reliable connectivity grows on a daily basis. Finding the right connectivity solution for your business is key to maximising your technology investment. Whether you’re looking to enhance your UC system with SIP, achieve higher bandwidth, connect offices via a managed WAN, find a competitive business mobile package or enhance your customers’ experience with Inbound/NGN Services, Blackstar Solutions has a range of innovative and cost-effective connectivity solutions.

SIP trunks offer a highly flexible, lower cost alternative to ISDN for inbound and outbound calls.

SIP trunking is a standards-based replacement for traditional ISDN phone lines. It connects your phone system to the public telephone network via an internet connection. At Blackstar Solutions, we provide secure, robust and resilient SIP trunking which integrates seamlessly into your telephony and data infrastructure. Compared to ISDN, SIP trunking offers cost savings on a per channel basis and is more flexible in terms of the quantity and type of numbers you can use. It’s also quicker to install and offers a robust business continuity service that ensures your business never loses any calls.

Traditional fixed line communications remain a fundamental service for many UK businesses. It’s a critical business requirement to receive inbound calls and make outbound calls without any interruption to service.

Working with Openreach, Blackstar offer high quality, business grade, fixed line services, tailored to your specific needs. You can choose between analogue, ISDN2 and ISDN30 lines and will only pay for the services you use. We can even help reduce your traditional fixed line estate and support your business in its transition from a legacy technology to a flexible SIP environment.
