Long-distance calls are cheaper when placed through a SIP trunk. Telephone system deployment complexity is reduced, eliminating PSTN gateways as well as their management and associated maintenance costs.  SIP trunking costs are based on bandwidth, which is more easily tailored to the economical increments that make the most sense for your business.  In order to employ your SIP trunking for Lync, your connection must be routed through a mediation server that transcodes media as necessary. This mediation server acts as a proxy between Microsoft’s Lync Server 2013 clients and the service provider. Mediation servers have both an internal and external network interface with the internal interface connecting to the front end servers and the external interface connecting the mediation server to either a public switched telephone network gateway or IP-PBX system. With SIP trunking, the external interface is connected to the ITSP’s external edge.
