ALCATEL, CISCO AND ERICSSON JOIN THE SIP CENTER INITIATIVE.
The SIP Center covers a number of key areas pertaining to the development of SIP, including background materials, a test platform, developer tools, forums, FAQs, News, Event Diary, White Papers and a product catalogue. The content is growing rapidly with new content, products and test activity.
SIP (Session Initiation Protocol), is part of the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) standards process and is modeled upon other Internet protocols such as SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) and HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol). It is used to establish, change, and tear down (end) sessions between one or more users in an IP-based network and provides a means for deploying the advanced telephony and real time media services to be offered by Telephone Companies around the World. Amongst other capabilities it provides user location capabilities, call participant management and call feature changes.
Alcatel, Cisco and Ericsson have confirmed their support for the SIP Center as principal sponsors of the initiative. The three companies join the initiative at a key point in its evolution in terms of scope and content of the site as well as in the development of SIP in the marketplace with all three vendors actively involved in SIP related developments. Furthermore, the parties are contributing content, hardware technology and software to enhance the testing platform.
The SIP Center is a portal for the commercial development of SIP software. All organizations involved in the development and deployment of SIP products can use this site to test their implementations of SIP and exchange views and ideas with others. Organizations can also register their own material for inclusion on this site.
