SIP Training Overview

Duration: 1 days


Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a widely adopted standard for VoIP systems, devices, and software. In this short but intensive course, you will review the SIP architecture, including the components such as media servers, application servers, gateways and endpoints. You will study the SIP messages, when and why they are used, how they are handled, and the components of each SIP message that is transported on the network. You will learn about the design components and process, with the application and sizing of each component covered in detail. You will also learn how VoIP works, its benefits, and its implementation. At the end of the day, you will have a very good understanding of the SIP protocol, messaging, routing, components, and design considerations.

We can transform this course into an Action Learning Workshop by including an extended hands-on design and procurement exercise related to your organization’s specific requirements.
