Telephone Lines / IP Lines (SIP trunks)


IP Direct Connect – a new way of connecting for 21st century


IP Direct Connect is Orbex’s SIP trunk solution. The service is the leading SIP trunk solution in the UK market, connecting your site directly into the Orbex / Gamma network using an IP circuit to carry and terminate your voice calls across the public telephone network.

It can either replace or complement your current ISDN, and is designed to work successfully with all the leading IP PBX brands in the UK market. This gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your PBX hardware works with the network service.

Compared to ISDN, IP Direct Connect is cheaper on a per channel basis, more flexible in terms of what telephone numbers you can have, and quicker to install. When installed together with ISDN it offers a very robust business continuity service, where two completely different technical solutions can be used together to carry your calls.
