SIP Interoperability: Why Is It So Hard To Achieve (Part III)

July 30, 2009

During this last "blogisode" we moved from a discussion about the technology and weakness of the SIP RFCs to what I feel is a far more difficult hurdle, the political challenges with SIP interoperability. As with national and global politics, getting people with diverse needs and existing investments to compromise is a significant challenge.

So how do we break the almost infinite cycle of continuous interoperability testing between the growing number of hardware vendors, software applications and carriers?

One approach that immediately comes to mind is to define a "gold standard" that each of the market participants can test against, and create a predictable level of interoperability assurance between systems.
