SIP Forum Announces SIP Trunking Interoperability Testing Event
By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor
The SIP Forum (News - Alert) is driving industry-wide adoption of the SIPconnect 1.1 Technical Specification through a new SIP trunking interoperability testing initiative named as SIPconnect-IT 2012.
This event will serve as a platform for application developers, equipment vendors and service providers who will be able to demonstrate and test implementations of this SIP trunking interoperability specification in a live network environment.
“SIPconnect-IT 2012 will give the IP communications engineering community an opportunity to put the theory and ideals of SIPconnect 1.1 into action and begin the hard work of identifying and ultimately resolving key internetworking issues related to SIP trunking,” said Marc Robins (News - Alert), SIP Forum president and managing director.
Those interested to take part in this event can register online at http://www.regonline.com/sipconnectit2012.
The University of New Hampshire Interoperability Laboratory will host SIPconnect-IT 2012.
Sprawled across a 32,000 square foot area in Durham, New Hampshire, the UNH-IOL focuses on testing services for data, telecom and storage networking technologies.
The UNH-IOL helps users to efficiently and cost effectively speed go-to-market time for products, and offers confidential, vendor-neutral testing that is recognized industry-wide as evidence of interoperability and conformance to technical standards.
“Through collaboration with the SIP Forum, the UNH-IOL is helping service providers overcome interoperability issues experienced when deploying SIP trunking services to their enterprise customers,” said James Swan, Research and Development, IP Technologies, UNH-IOL.
The SIP Forum was in news earlier this year for reporting on the state of IP Fax.
