EtherSpeak developed SureTrunk specifically for ShoreTel customers of all sizes—enabling them to connect directly to SIP networks. With SureTrunk, ShoreTel customers can now realize all of the benefits of IP-enabled communications free of the burden of additional investments in hardware or firewall/gateways.
The routing of SIP traffic to EtherSpeak’s SureTrunk service is easily set up with a VPN tunnel enabling SureTrunking. The VPN tunnel provides access from the customer ShoreTel switch (where trunks are configured) to a virtual IP assigned by EtherSpeak to the customer’s ShoreTel switch. The customer’s firewall should support industry standard IPSec encryption with availability of one-tunnel VPN license.
ShoreTel requires licensing for SIP trunking to be enabled. Information on licensing is available through your ShoreTel reseller.
