"SIPNOC was conceived as a meeting place for network operators to come together to share their deployment experiences and ideas on how to make IP communications better, and provide tangible results that further accelerate the development and worldwide propagation of SIP and SIP network services," said SIP Forum President and Managing Director, Marc Robins. "We expect SIPNOC US 2012 to pick up where last year's inaugural event left off and be far more than just an educational conference, but a meeting of the brightest technical minds from across the global networking operator community."
The SIP Forum has also developed an impressive conference agenda and lineup of speakers at SIPNOC US 2012, to be announced in detail shortly.
SIPNOC US 2012 will focus on issues critical to the reliable and successful deployment and operation of SIP-based services in carrier networks. The agenda will feature special presentations, panel discussions and workshops covering key topics by network operators related to SIP-based services and infrastructure, including testing, application development, SIP trunking, FoIP, call routing and peering, IPV6, SIP security, troubleshooting and monitoring, emergency services and more.
Attendees at SIPNOC US 2012 will include telecommunications providers, major backbone operators, interconnect and wholesale solution providers, ISPs, cable operators, wireless network operators as well as large enterprises deploying major SIP initiatives. While the international carrier and service provider community is the primary focus at SIPNOC US 2012, industry stakeholders involved in major SIP initiatives such as network equipment vendors, government agency representatives, large enterprise network operators and academic research organizations are also encouraged to attend.
The SIP Forum has gained an international reputation for developing important, educational events surrounding SIP. The organization's SIPit series of interoperability testing events regularly provides a test bed for SIP-based applications and equipment that has been heralded as critical for the development of new products and services in the industry. The SIP Forum also has a number of committees and task groups made up of well-known industry experts examining a myriad of SIP-related topics, including the use of SIP in smart grid installations, FoIP, video and user-agent configuration.
