For businesses with various offices distributed at different places, it’s not so easy to keep them connected in one telephony system and manage them as a whole. Though most VoIP systems can be connected via the internet using SIP trunks, setting a corporate phone network in such a way can be very complicated due to the number of SIP trunks needed to be configured.
