April 5, 2011























Hot results of Techistan-sponsored, DIDX-inspired @MrSip's professional, neutral and fair, well-prepared and executed The SIP School SIP Survey is out and published! The data was gathered online and face to face ... before, during and after Enterprise Connect, a conference held in March 2011 in Orlando.

One UK CEO stated, "I have a contact in a large service provider company that has told me, he's never been so busy taking SIP Trunks out of customer sites and replacing them with ISDN lines."

What?????

"We've seen similar results - basically "across the board" issues from codecs to NAT traversal issues. Call transfer and faxes are the two big surprises too.
