There remains little doubt regarding the significance of SIP — Session Initiation Protocol — and the profound effect it has had on the IP telephony industry. SIP is an IETF signaling protocol for Internet conferencing, telephony, presence, events notification, and instant messaging, and many developers are beginning to realize the tremendous potential of writing applications to take advantage of this standard. The SIP Workshop is a full-day conference designed to educate conferees on the subject of SIP. Special thanks go out to the SIP Forum and for sponsoring this event.

SIP-Based Control for Legacy Infrastructure
Friday - 02/25/05,  2:30-3:15pm

Presented By: Mark Rayburn, Senior Technical Advisor, CPT International

SIP is commonly associated with connecting end-to-end VoIP calls, however the ability to initiate multimedia user sessions from the application layer allows SIP to be used in environments alongside traditional telephony components. SIP can, in fact, be used as a more cost-effective means of integrating application servers to TDM-based call infrastructure with the added benefit of allowing a standards-based approach. SIP’s advantages are not limited to facilitating direct calling via VoIP; it offers a valuable standards-based alternative to managing call control of voice applications without incurring the excess cost and hassle of including extraneous DSP boards in your platform architecture.
