North Andover, Mass. (October 22, 2012) - The SIP Forum announced today it
will host the third annual SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC 2013),
an educational conference focused on the challenges and opportunities of
deploying SIP-based carrier services worldwide. Building on the success of
past conferences, this year the SIP Forum will add an extra day of special
workshops and sessions, designed to educate service provider technical staff
on best practices and strategies for the successful implementation of
SIP-based services and applications. 


SIPNOC 2013 will be held at the Hyatt Dulles Hotel in Herndon, Va., from
April 22-25, 2013, and will continue its practice of providing leading
technical and operations personnel from the global carrier community with
educational, non-commercial and technical content focused on the real-world
challenges of deploying SIP services in global IP networks.

Early bird registration is available at http://www.regonline.com/sipnoc2013.

"The growth and acceleration of SIP services within the international
service provider community - and the accompanying technological, logistical
and businesses challenges - was the original impetus behind SIPNOC and
remains our guiding motivation," SIP Forum Chairman Richard Shockey said.
"We're pleased to bring this unique gathering for the network operator
community back for a third year, once again providing a non-commercial,
technically-oriented setting for discussing and sharing ideas and knowledge
about SIP implementation." 

SIPNOC 2013 will once again bring together communications industry leaders
to learn, discuss and formulate new ideas and strategies to address the
challenges and opportunities for SIP-based carrier services in fixed and
mobile IP network environments. The conference, which is designed
specifically for SIP network operations personnel and engineering staff,
will feature well-known industry speakers and a number of highly technical
educational and instructional panels and sessions. The SIP Forum will also
host networking events at the conference and offer a series of informal
"Birds of a Feather" sessions, which encourage discussion on a variety of
topics in hallways, available meeting rooms and break-out areas.

"SIPNOC demonstrates the SIP Forum's ongoing commitment to serving as the
industry's non-commercial think tank for international SIP interoperability
and deployment," said Marc Robins, President and Managing Director of the
SIP Forum. "Our third annual conference will expand upon key issues
identified in previous discussions and through our SIP Forum Task Groups,
with the aim of delivering high-level technical support and guidance to the
broad service provider community worldwide."

SIPNOC 2013 will build on critical themes discussed at past events,
including: application development and testing; SIP trunking
interoperability and the SIP Forum's SIPconnect 1.1 technical specification;
Fax over Internet Protocol (FoIP) interworking; implementing SIP over IPv6;
user-agent configuration; emergency services; policy servers; security;
operational issues; call routing and peering; troubleshooting and
monitoring; SIP Interconnection; HD-Voice Deployment Challenges; and Video
interop issues.

"SIPNOC is an international gathering where communications engineers and
network professionals can discuss and troubleshoot the real-world
intricacies of working with SIP every day," Robins added. "We expect this
year's conference to build on our past successes, and explore new
complexities as we strive together, as a community, to deploy SIP-based
services in diverse network environments worldwide."

Attendees at SIPNOC 2013 will include telecommunications providers, major
backbone operators, interconnect and wholesale solution providers, ISPs,
ITSPs (Internet Telephony Service Providers), cable operators and wireless
network operators, as well as large enterprises deploying major SIP
initiatives. Industry stakeholders - such as network equipment vendors,
government agency representatives and academic research organizations - are
also encouraged to attend.

The SIP Forum enjoys an international reputation for developing key
educational events around SIP deployment. The organization's SIPit series of
interoperability testing events regularly provides a test bed for SIP-based
applications and equipment and has been heralded as critical for the
development of new products and services in the industry. The SIP Forum is
also home to committees and task groups comprised of industry experts
examining a myriad of SIP-related topics, including the use of SIP with
FoIP, video, SIP over IPv6 and user-agent configuration.
