North Andover, MA, August 26, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The SIP Forum (www.sipforum.org
) has announced details for its next interoperability testing event, SIPit 25, which will be held September 14-18 and hosted by the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab (UNH-IOL) in Durham, N.H. Conducted by the SIP Forum twice a year, SIPits are the world’s premier interoperability testing events for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), bringing together the leading SIP application developers, service providers and IP communications equipment manufacturers to ensure their SIP implementations work seamlessly together in an IP network testing environment. An important goal of the SIPit events is to help refine both the SIP protocol and its implementations in order to further establish SIP as a global interoperable standard for real-time Internet communication services.
SIPit 25 registration is now open, and companies interested in attending the event can register at www.sipit.net
"SIPit 25 brings together technology and service providers across the global IP communications industry to test and validate their new SIP implementations in a live, real-world IP network setting,” said Marc Robins, SIP Forum President and Managing Director. "In addition, this fall event will also give companies the chance to test parts of the draft recommendations formulated by SIP Forum task groups and showcase the progress that these groups are making to further establish the SIP protocol within the consumer, service provider and enterprise network environments.”
SIPit 25 is organized by the SIP Forum’s Test Event Working Group (TEWG) and serves as a “plugfest” for participating companies to perform SIP interoperability testing with other participants in a live network environment. Conducted twice a year, with events rotating in the United States, Europe, and Asia, the SIP Forum has hosted 24 plugfest events around the globe. The previous SIPit, SIPit 24, was hosted by the Japan Network Information Center (JPNIC) and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) last May in Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan.
