The SIP Survey results are out..!

New site, test system and HTML5....!

February 12, 2015

It’s been an interesting time at The SIP School over the past 12 months as we’ve been working on a number of major updates, some are now live and being used by students with more on the way. 

Getting a new website up and running is always a challenge but trying to get the site to both look good and work well on multiple platforms (including various Tablet devices) has proven to be frustrating when things don’t work well - yet exciting when it all comes together, who doesn’t like seeing their website look great on an iPad? 

Thanks Broadsoft!

So.... It's taken a while for this to pan out yet today sees the provision of a 'Live' WAN Assessment system for SIP trunking being added as an optional training module to all SIP School students with a valid SIP training license.  Access is via the SIP training course (Within the SIP/VoIP and QoS module)

PacketSmart is the system provided by Broadsoft and enabled (for us) through the driving force of Don Lewis of Broadsoft with the help of many of his colleagues.  All of this has been provided for free and enables up to 5 students to simultaneously create separate WAN Assessment tests between two locations to load a circuit with calls, create reports and then assess a circuits ability to support the calls required by a client.

the SIP Survey 2014 is out!

June 16, 2014

The 2014 SIP survey has been made available today on www.thesipschool.com.  All of you that are existing subscribers and/or students (of The SIP School) will be receiving an email with the link to download the PDF, any new visitors to this site can gain free access via this link http://www.thesipschool.com/sipsurvey2014.html

It's a great read that highlights what's happening in the SIP trunking space, what are the issues that people are facing along with suggestions, comments and quotes not only from us at The SIP School but from other respected thought leaders in the industry.  This year, we’ve even added in a couple of questions on WebRTC

The doors are fully open at the WebRTC School

September 12, 2013

So we’ve been working hard, really hard to complete the WebRTC School ‘package’ and we’re finally there. 

Today (September 12th) is the day that the WebRTC Developer training and certification program is ‘live’ on the site www.webrtcschool.com and it’s packed full of instruction, demos and ‘real code’ to help the developer get up and running with writing WebRTC applications.  For a full demo and content pdf, click here

WebRTC School is LIVE..!!!!

June 24, 2013

WebRTC is the hottest topic in communications today and The SIP School now has a 'sister' site in WebRTC School.

As you can imagine, this is a big day for us here at Vocale and we think that this new school is going to be every bit as successful as The SIP School in providing students with all the knowledge they need to both understand the ‘underlying’ technologies that make the WebRTC ‘magic’ happen as well as learning about WebRTC APIs and of course, how to develop WebRTC applications.

The Certified WebRTC Integrator program is the first one that is available with the Certified WebRTC Developer program becoming available soon - don't get them mixed up!!! Please take a look at the Demos and Outlines herehttp://www.webrtcschool.com/courses/view

the SIP Survey is out!

WebRTC School Pre-Registration now available

May 21, 2013

At Enterprise Connect I was asked a few times by people if The SIP School would be getting involved with WebRTC but I couldn't really answer as things were in the 'early stages' of development at that point.  Well now, today we've posted the following to our website / facebook page and other locations ...  So YES... we are doing something with WebRTC 

"WebRTC has become the hottest topic in the world of communications today and of course there will be a demand for training on both how WebRTC works and how to develop WebRTC applications.
