SIP Forum sets slate for SIPNOC U.S. 2012 conference


SIP trunking services to enable enterprise VoIP and other IP applications have taken off in the last year or so, with more carriers offering the service and more vendors offering session border controllers and other gear to help support these services.

It is no surprise then that the SIP Forum sees SIP trunking interoperability as a key issue discussion at the upcoming SIPNOC U.S. 2012 conference in June. The group just announced the agenda and key themes for SIPNOC, and in addition to SIP trunking, security and SIP- IPv6 deployment challenges also are expected to be hot topics.

This is the second year for the two-day conference, which is aimed mainly at service provider engineering and technical staff supporting such enterprise communications applications through service provider networks. Representatives of enterprises deploying SIP also are expected and encouraged to attend.

The event will take place June 25-27 at the Hyatt Dulles Hotel in Herndon, Va. Federal Communications Commission Chief Technology Officer Henning Schulzrinne will present the SIPNOC US 2012 keynote address.

A principal architect of the SIP standard, Schulzrinne has published more than 250 journal and conference papers and more than 70 Internet Requests for Comment, helping to shape and formulate key protocols for enabling VoIP, such as SIP, into Internet Standards.

Other key presentations include a session on SIP trunk interoperability testing from Jack Shields of XO Communications, and a presentation on SIP and IPv6 from Dan York of ISOC.
