What is SIP Termination?
Today in the telecom market many providers offer services based on VoIP. Among these providers are of course SIP providers, who offer voice over IP service and enable calling from SIP phones to plain-old-telephone lines and vice versa. SIP is the universal protocol which is used for Internet telephony, and there are numerous SIP providers worldwide. Almost all of them provide SIP termination. It is a service that allows users to use VoIP in order to make outgoing voice calls to external phone networks all over the world, including public switched telephone network phone numbers, as well as mobile cellular operators. Tariffs for SIP termination service usually vary from one SIP termination provider to another and calling rates vary depending on destination country, city, also the mobile operator of the subscriber you are dialing.
SIP termination is becoming popular in the professional world and you can rely on this service to communicate with business associates without the need of bearing additional expenses. It provides such features as video conferencing, voice calls, streaming media, instant messaging, playing online games and many more. Thanks to the facilities offered by SIP termination, more companies, both small or large, are taking full advantage of the service to expand their reach.

Unlike SIP termination, which means outbound calling, SIP origination (or inbound calling) is a service that allows users to receive incoming calls to VoIP device ( it can be soft-phone, IP phone or IP-PBX). In most cases SIP service includes allocation of telephone number called DID or DDI. This number may be dialed from any PSTN or mobile phone and the call will be forwarded to your SIP user or IP address, thus can be answered by VoIP phone or SIP device. You can buy a DID number, assign a route to your VoIP phone, IP-PBX, and even a cell phone.
For instance: if your office is in New York and your customers or suppliers are in Japan, you can consider buying DID number and provide it to your partners, so in this case, they can call you at very low rates. When DID number is configured and caller in Japan dialed it, you get ringing phone in the New York office via IP.
