The training programs are delivered through eLearning across the Internet. Registered students have access to all training material for a full 12 months, including access to all new WebRTC training material added to the program during the license period.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get convenient training and even certification on Session Initiation Protocol? Now there’s an excellent, cost-effective and convenient source for both training and certification – The SIP School’s online program, endorsed by TIA.
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.
- SIP School Certified Associate - SSCA™: SIP training goes from the basics of SIP messaging and SIP Servers, right through Security, Firewalls, NAT, Troubleshooting, Trunking, Enum and onto SIP in Unified Communications. Soon to be included, SIP and Fax over IP.
- SIP Sales and Marketing Professionals - SSMP™: To effectively participate in the Unified Communications, Hosted PBX and SIP trunking boom, sales and marketing professionals need to understand the opportunities and techniques required to succeed. Get training right here.
- SIP School VVoIP Professional SSVVP™: SIP is still quite new and a lot of people will need to learn all about Data networking to make a successful transition from TDM to VoIP. This course covers all you need to get started with a sharp focus on Voice and Video over IP as well as the new IPv6 protocol. This can be a great foundation for the SSCA SIP certification program.
The training programs are delivered through eLearning across the Internet. Registered students have access to all training material for a full 12 months, including access to all new SIP training material added to the program during the license period.
TIA members receive a 10 percent discount on the SIP school training programs and certification.
The FCC’s Airplane Mode: Fact vs. Fiction
By Grant Seiffert, President
Telecommunications Industry Association
We hope that China will use this break in the negotiations to reexamine its approach to the negotiations to expand the ITA and focus on reducing its overly large list of sensitive products. If China is ready to move forward to conclude the expansion of the ITA this year then the ITA Expansion is achievable this year.
As part of a large U.S. industry delegation representing a broad array of ICT manufacturers, TIA is in Geneva, Switzerland this week to cheer on the trade negotiators who are working hard to conclude the negotiations to expand the product coverage of the WTO’s Information Technology Agreement (ITA). The ITA remains one of the most commercially important WTO trade agreements – by eliminating tariffs on a broad range of ICT products, the ITA lowers the cost and improves access to these products, which are vital to the economic competitiveness of all economies around the world.
The Telecommunications Industry Association was in Geneva last week along with AdvaMed, the Consumer Electronics Association, the Entertainment Software Association, the Information Technology Industry Council, the Liquid Crystal Polymer Coalition, the Motion Picture Association of America, and the Semiconductor Industry Association. This coalition of high-tech companies represents a broad spectrum of manufacturers and service providers in the information and communication technology (ICT) sector.
