SIP Trunking Report Contributing Writer

The SIP Forum recently announced that the Call for Presentations is now open for the third annual SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC 2013), which will be held at the Hyatt Dulles Hotel in Herndon, VA, from April 22 -25, 2013.

SIPNOC 2013 is a three-day, network operator-centric educational conference that focuses on the challenges and opportunities of global SIP-based carrier service deployment.

SIPNOC 2013 attendees are to include telecommunications providers, major backbone operators, interconnect and wholesale providers, ISPs, cable operators, wireless network operators, and large enterprises undergoing major SIP initiatives.

Early Bird Registration for the event is now open.

Meanwhile, SIPNOC 2013 Call for Presentations proposals can also be submitted via the Call for Presentations website. Suggested topics include SIP peering, SIP trunking, emergency services, congestion control, scaling and capacity issues, SIP-based applications, routing and pretty much anything else related to SIP network operations.

SIPNOC 2013 speaking opportunities include general session talks, which should be on a topic of interest to the general event audience, and up to 30 minutes in length; general session panels, which feature a moderator and a team of panelists; special workshops, which run for two to three hours in length and aim to provide in-depth information; and Birds of a Feather sessions (BOFs), which are informal sessions on topics of interest to a portion of the SIPNOC community.

For those who can't wait until April to get their SIP fix, ITEXPO East will feature a SIP Trunking-Unified Communications (UC) Seminar, free to all ITEXPO attendees. The SIP Trunk-UC Seminars will be held from January 30 - February 1 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Florida, and feature the SIP Forum delivering a FoIP Task Group Update on January 31 at 3:00p.m.

In other SIP Forum news, the association formed a new special task group in September to further investigate the issues involved in the convergence of SIP and IPv6. Led by CableLabs' John Berg and Siemens Enterprise Communications' Andrew Hutton, this group will specifically focus on issues related to SIP over the IPv6 protocol, the impact of technologies designed to transition users from IPv4 to IPv6 and the results of dual stack devices on existing SIP networks.
