Into SIP? then join up!

November 8, 2008

At The SIP School we run a SIP Wiki that is completely open to edit, upload company details, advertise SIP products and services and contribute to the discussion groups - whatever you want to do.  It's growing and it's going to get really big as more people join.

Now the main point of this post is to tell you that if you join (which is completely free by the way) then you get entered into a draw to win an iPod Shuffle - it takes a minute to do this.  If you have something to contribute like posting an article, advert or even responding to another post then you are automatically added to the draw to win an iPod nano....  That's it!

Why are we doing this?  Well, we want to say thanks to people who are joining and contributing and therefore making this SIP Wiki grow to it's full potential.

So, go for it, click here to go to the Wiki - T&Cs are on the site.

Why the SSCA™

November 5, 2008

SIP is a protocol that is affecting everyone involved in the communications industry and it's vital that these people need to understand it at some level. With all the information available on the Internet it can get a little confusing on what to read and buy in order to get up to speed and this is where The SIP School solves the problem.

It's one place that Sales, Marketing, Pre-Sales, Installation and Support professionals can go to in order to learn all they need to about SIP using a fully animated, flash based eLearning system that not only covers the theory on SIP but actually 'engages' the learner and encourages them to use SIP based products available on the Internet for free so that they can actually 'try things for themselves'. 

We know that theory is important yet in the real world it's critical that people who will be involved in SIP Network design, Installations and Support have relevent experience with the protocol before working with customers.

In order to prove that they have the knowledge to work with SIP, The SIP School has the certification program called the SSCA™ (SIP School Certified Associate) that allows people to take a test and get qualified. 

Of course a qualification is only as good as people who recognise it and this is where the SSCA™ really proves it worth as it is not only being used by companies such as... MotorolaBell CanadaInter-TelChevronAllstreamBritish telecomCable and Wireless etc.

It is endorsed by industry giants such a MitelPanasonic EuropesnomIngateFast Lane with many more 'lining up' to make it the only SIP training program and certification that they will recognize - which means that there really is just one place you need to go for SIP Training, The SIP School
