Choosing a SIP Carrier: The Checklist You understand that your journey to SIP technology is complex, so having the right partner on this expedition is critical. Fortunately choosing the right provider to help with your implementation doesn’t have to be complex. In fact, if you choose well, that provider can help maximize your existing voice and network investments while you transition to new SIP technology. More importantly they can help you migrate at your pace and on your timeline.
