SIP Protocol, Architecture and Design Training Course with hands-on Exercises
SIP Protocol, Architecture and Design Training, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a widely adopted standard for VoIP systems, devices, and software. In this short but intensive SIP Protocol, Architecture and Design Training 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. With SIP Protocol, Architecture and Design Training, you will also 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.
• If you are familiar with some aspects of this SIP Protocol, Architecture and Design Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the SIP Protocol, Architecture and Design Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
Upon completing this SIP Protocol, Architecture and Design Training course, learners will be able to meet these objectives:
• Describe why SIP was adopted as a standard protocol for VoIP
• Assess the strengths and limitations of SIP versus other VoIP approaches and protocols
• Summarize the current applications and adopters for SIP
• List the key components of a SIP design and detail how they fit together
• Explain design considerations such as sizing, redundancy, disaster recovery, and emergency planning.
• Characterize when and how to apply particular features and components to your own design
