IP Flex Reach (SIP Trunking) services enable the transmission of voice telephone calls in IP format over an IP compatible transport service. IP Flexible Reach provides a managed Voice over IP (VoIP) solution offering inbound and outbound SIP Trunking on your data network, enabling local, long distance and international calling for all your sites. Fax and Modem calling also applicable.
AT&T IP Flexible Reach can also be referred to as a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking solution. It is deployed in situations where customers own their own premises telephony (analog phones, key system, TDM PBX, or IP PBX, IP PBX Clusters and Session Border Controllers) equipment.
IP Flexible Reach is available on two transport types –AT&T Dedicated Internet (ADI) and AT&T Virtual Private Network (AT&T VPN). You choose the number of concurrent calls across the transport type to meet your business needs.
IP Flexible Reach includes two package options: Local and Long Distance (Calling Plan B), and Local and Long Distance Package bundled with free off-net minutes (Calling Plan C). All package options include free unlimited on-net calling between all Business VoIP sites.
IP Flexible Reach also provides robust Business Continuity Solutions (Enhanced Features) not available on traditional TDM based telephony services, such as Trunk Call Routing (TCR) that redirects calls to a backup SIP Trunk. A variety of TCR options are available to meet your Business Continuity needs. Additionally, numerous Line-Side Features are available, such as Remote Call Forward, Account Codes, Authorization Codes, Sequential Ringing and others.
How it works
On your local area network (LAN), your IP phone converts your voice or facsimile transmissions into Internet Protocol (IP) format. Your LAN equipment routes those transmissions (calls) via your transport access facility to our network. On-net calls (VoIP to VoIP) route only within the IP network. Off-net calls (VoIP to the PSTN) route through a gateway device that converts them from IP to analog format and routes them on the public switched telephone network (PSTN) to their destination.
