How Vodafone Partners are Switching Customers to SIP with Confidence

Kathy Quashie, Head of Indirect Business at Vodafone UK

‘Vodafone’s SIP over Public Internet was developed with our channel partners. The solution lets businesses use their phone system to make and receive calls via their internet connection. This significantly reduces business telephony costs, while offering new levels of flexibility and scalability.’

- Kathy Quashie, Head of Indirect Partnerships, Vodafone



With the traditional phone network fast approaching ‘end-of-life’, Vodafone Business Partners understand that voice services in the UK are undergoing fundamental changes. Openreach has confirmed that the switch off of BT traditional voice services is planned for 2025, with no support for the ISDN or PTSN phonelines that are relied upon by many businesses to make and receive calls.*

We’re already working closely with our Partners – facilitating innovative, scalable solutions to help their customers stay one step ahead of this challenging technological shift.

Small to medium enterprises (SMEs) still using fixed services will need to decide what’s next for their organisation and how best to make the move to IP voice options. Migrating sooner rather than later can provide a quick win–delivering compelling benefits, fast.

Turning physical phone lines into virtual lines
Vodafone Evolved Voice over Public Internet is our range of SIP trunking services, supported by our award-winning network. It turns physical phone lines into virtual lines using an internet connection – with a business grade SIP solution that makes more possible. It makes it easy for your customers to modernise business calling and make the move to IP voice.

Vodafone offers a great value SIP solution that delivers compelling cost benefits, while supporting high quality calls.

Lower cost calling without compromise
SIP trunks can offer savings of as much as 50% versus traditional phone services. That means that the sooner your customers make the switch away traditional fixed lines to a SIP trunk solution, the greater their cost saving.

They’ll wave goodbye to expensive landlines and ISDN lines, and reduce costly call forwarding costs with a service built for businesses who just need things to work. Inclusive calls to UK landlines and UK mobiles via their phone system means less bill shock and more good reasons to keep talking.
