In the “SIP Trunking” section, you can create, use, and manage a virtual communication channel (Trunk).

The SIP Trunk allows you to connect any quantity of phone numbers instead of redirecting to real numbers. Since each virtual number can have an unlimited amount of channels, each number can have numerous simultaneous conversations. To set up trunks, go to the System Management > General > SIP Trunking section.

The SIP Trunks list contains the following information:

  • ID: The unique identification number of the Trunk.

  • Status: You can change the Trunk status using the “Status” button in this column (Active, Disabled).

  • Trunk Name: The name of the Trunk.

  • Login: The login name.

  • Hostname: The name of the host.

  • Port: The number of the Port.

You can narrow down the search results by using the following filters:

  • ID: Enter the unique identification number of the Trunk.

  • Status: Select the status of the Trunk (Active, Disabled).

  • Trunk Name: Enter the name of the Trunk.

To create a new Trunk, click the “Add New Record” button.
