Less than two months ago, when it launched SIPNOC (SIP Network Operators Conference), SIP Forum president Marc Robins noted, “The SIP Forum is dedicated to providing technical guidance and support of the SIP protocol across all audiences.”
Today, it has taken the next step to bringing that promise to fruition in announcing the official agenda for SIPNOC 11, which will be held at the Hyatt Dulles Hotel in Herndon, VA, April 25-27, and will be keynoted by FCC Chief Technologist Dr. Douglas C. Sicker.
Considering the emergence of SIP as the dominant standard for IP Communications, an overarching event considering security, troubleshooting, monitoring and metrics, interop, ancillary services like Fax over IP (a rapidly growing market, which once was considered on the way out), and of course key services and infrastructure that enable SIP-based communications, is almost a necessity. There are so many flavors of SIP, with nearly every vendor putting their own proprietary spin on the standard, that a common forum for reconciling dirferences between these proprietary mutations is a must.
It’s also a must-attend for network operators and engineers looking to deploy SIP infrastructure and services.
Session topics include:
- Application development
- SIP Trunking
- User-Agent Configuration
- Emergency Services
- Policy Servers
- Operational Issues
- Call Routing and Peering
- Troubleshooting and Monitoring
- SIP Interconnection (SIP-to-SS7 signaling gateways)
