Introduction To SIP Trunking And Its Advantages

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), is the name of telecommunications protocol used for establishing a voice communication session on a data network like over the Internet. An SIP “session” might be a regular VoIP phone call between two participants, or a multi-party conference call. The most common applications of SIP are in Internet telephony for voice and video calls, as well as instant messaging over Internet Protocol (IP) networks.

Since we now know what is SIP, let's move on to the concept of SIP Trunking. An SIP Trunk in the most simplest terms would be a digital "replacement" for the traditional analog phone line. A SIP Trunk provides a user/business the same service you get from a analog phone line without the need for a physical wired connection. A SIP Trunk is a “virtual” phone line which is provided by a SIP trunk provider, the SIP trunks utilizes your data connections like Cable Modem, DSL, Ethernet over Copper, T1 etc. to connect your phone system back to their network. SIP Trunk Lines represent the number of simultaneous calls to the public telephone network that can be made at the same time. SIP Trunk Lines are the online ‘virtual’ equivalent to lines coming in from the phone company or channels on a T1 circuit – just instead of these calls ringing on a phone connected by cables at a desk, the calls ring in on your computer or mobile phone.

Rooting Xiaomi Mi4 Stable ROM

I switched from an Apple iPhone to Xiaomi Mi4 since past 4 months and I must say it is an excellent smartphone. Apart from power-packed hardware the Google Android 4.4 based MIUI6 ROM on the software front has been a big reason the phone is a huge success and is often compared to the likes of Apple iPhone 6 despite being cheaper almost three times to it. The company offers two versions of their official MIUI ROM - the "Stable Version" which comes pre-installed with Google services like "Google Play Store" and the "Development Version" which gets frequent updates, does not have Google services pre-installed, is tuned towards Chinese app-ecosystem but has the added advantage of being pre-rooted.

While I was enjoying my experience with the developer version of the ROM, last update MIUI6 v 5.2.13 broke Google services and re-installing using the usual "Google Installer" from the MIUI Appstore did not worked. This is when I decided to switch to the Stable version of the ROM and had to manually root my phone as shared below unlike the development version which comes pre-rooted.
