The SIP Forum Announces FCC Chief Technology Officer 

Henning Schulzrinne Keynote Speaker for SIPNOC US 2012


SIP Visionary Schulzrinne to address the worldwide service provider
community on SIP technology and opportunities facing the IP communications

The  <http://www.sipforum.org/> SIP Forum recently announced Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Henning
Schulzrinne as the keynote speaker for the second annual
<http://www.sipnoc.org/> SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC), being
held at the Hyatt Dulles Hotel in Herndon, VA, June 25-27, 2012. 

SIPNOC US 2012 will host an international audience focused on the
operational and technical aspects of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) in
service provider networks and 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, troubleshooting and monitoring, emergency
services and more. The event website is located at  <http://www.sipnoc.org>

"I'm excited to be able to talk about the challenges and opportunities of
moving to an all-IP network to this international audience of network
operational and technical professionals," said Schulzrinne. "As part of my
participation in SIPNOC US 2012, I hope to gain a richer perspective on the
future of SIP-enabled communications among service providers."


"The SIP Forum is delighted to have Henning keynote this year's SIPNOC
event," said Richard Shockey, Chairman of the Board of the SIP Forum.
"Henning is universally acclaimed as the Father of the SIP standard. We have
come a long way since the first SIP specification was adopted in 1999, and
we still have much work to do. We look forward to hearing Henning's insights
on where we are headed." 


As CTO of the FCC, Schulzrinne guides the organization's work on technology
and engineering issues, together with the FCC's Office of Engineering and
Technology. He advises on matters across the agency to ensure that FCC
policies are driving technological innovation, including serving as a
resource to FCC Commissioners.  Schulzrinne joined the FCC in 2010 as an
Engineering Fellow. 


Schulzrinne serves as Julian Clarence Levi Professor of Mathematical Methods
and Computer Science and Professor of Engineering at The Fu Foundation
School of Engineering at Columbia University.  Over the course of his
career, he has published more than 250 journal and conference papers and
more than 70 Internet Requests for Comment (RFCs) - working to shape the key
protocols for enabling voice-over-IP (VoIP) and other multimedia
applications, including the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) which have
become Internet Standards.  His research interests include Internet
multimedia systems, applied network engineering, wireless networks,
security, quality of service, and performance evaluation.


"Mr. Schulzrinne is one of the key architects of the SIP standard, and a
leading mind in the IP communications industry.  We are simply thrilled to
have him take part in this year's SIPNOC event," said Marc Robins, SIP Forum
President and Managing Director. 

SIPNOC US 2012 will build on themes first discussed at last year's inaugural
event: addressing issues critical to the reliable and successful deployment
and operation of SIP-based services in carrier networks and the
opportunities that come with it. Among the topics expected to be on the
agenda at this year's conference are SIP trunking interoperability and the
SIP Forum's recently ratified SIPconnect 1.1 technical specification that
provides a definitive and standardized set of guidelines for seamless,
end-to-end interoperability between SIP-enabled IP-PBXs and service provider
networks. Other themes to be discussed include Fax over Internet protocol
(FoIP) interworking, implementing SIP with IPv6, and the sharing of best
practices for the utilization of Wireshark for network diagnostics within IP
network environments. 

Attendees at SIPNOC US 2012 will include engineers and network architects
from 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.
