What is SIP?

Critical for today’s telecommunications, the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a signaling protocol used to establish sessions in an IP network. A session might be a simple two-way telephone call or it might be a collaborative multi-media conference session. The ability to establish these sessions means that a host of innovative services becomes possible, such as voice-enriched e-commerce, web page click-to-dial, Instant Messaging with buddy lists, and IP Centrex services. The Voice over IP (VoIP) community has adopted SIP as its protocol of choice for signalling. SIP is an RFC standard (RFC 3261) from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the body responsible for administering and developing the mechanisms that comprise the Internet. SIP is still evolving and being extended as technology matures and SIP products are socialized in the marketplace.
With implementation of SIP into all PBX manufacturers’ systems, as well as VoIP Phones, unified communications solutions and gradually into mobile, it is imperative that those working with these technologies learn about SIP.

TIA has officially endorsed The SIP School as the training provider of choice for SIP. You and your personnel can now become officially recognised as SIP experts in three areas by taking online courses and passing the certification tests.
