Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is used in Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communications. It allows users to make mostly free voice and video calls over the internet. Having a free SIP account is a great way to make free calls. You begin by choosing a SIP provider that assigns you a ​SIP account at no charge. Use it with softphone software, an app, or a VoIP-compatible phone.
