SIP wasn't originally designed to be secure, which means it's easily hacked.

SIP is a text-based protocol that closely resembles Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), with addressing that resembles Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) that you'll typically encounter in emails. The header includes information about the caller's device, the nature of the call and other details necessary to make the call work. The receiving device examines the request and decides whether it can accommodate the call. Some VoIP providers use Virtual Private Networks (VPN) to protect the SIP traffic but VPN and SIP do not work well together and, consequently, VoIP providers face many problems. VPN also doesn’t support Quality of Service (QoS) so call quality can be lost unless there is significant bandwidth available.

How does iQuila make VoIP communications better?:

The iQuila protocol was designed to transmit Layer 2 data over TCP Port 443 at high speeds therefore avoiding the issues associated with VoIP traffic over VPN.

iQuila Enterprise can deliver secure Layer 2 communications direct from your hosted VoIP solution to the clients’ office over any type of Internet connection including 4G & 5G.

All VoIP traffic can be securely routed over this Layer 2 connection avoiding complex firewall and NAT issues.

iQuila supports QoS for voice traffic providing the best quality VoIP service while keeping the connection fully secure.

iQuila Enterprise has an enhanced policy management function that enables the administrator to apply data policies only allowing VoIP traffic over the network if required.
