Get Up to Speed During SIP Training Day at SIPNOC 2015!


SIPNOC 2015 ( <http://www.sipnoc.org> www.sipnoc.org) is a unique, three-day educational conference focusing on the challenges and opportunities related to the deployment of SIP-based carrier services.

By popular demand, the SIP Forum has added a special, new workshop to the SIPNOC 2015 agenda!

For this year's SIPNOC, we've teamed up with Mark Lindsey and the team at ECG to offer a special full day of specialized SIP training. This new SIP Training Day is scheduled for Tuesday, June 23, 2015, and is designed to offer SIPNOC 2015 attendees relevant training on the SIP protocol, as well as provide insights and considerations related to a variety of technical implementations. Ultimately, the goal of this special training workshop is to help ensure that SIPNOC 2015 attendees get the most out of the technical presentations that follow over the course of the conference.

In contrast to video training and online courses available elsewhere, during the SIP Training Day at SIPNOC 2015 you'll be working with experienced trainers who build, improve, and debug VoIP systems every day. 

At the SIPNOC 2015 SIP Training Day, you’ll be able to brush up on the essentials of VoIP Network Operation. ECG's training will deliver insights from the trenches of Interop troubleshooting and the network engineering of the boardroom. Instead of a rehearsal of IETF RFCs, you'll see how VoIP is really done in live networks, today.

SIPNOC 2015 Training Day Topics Include:

SIP Call Control. How do calls get started? How are they changed? How is the codec negotiated? How is incompatibility worked out?

Session Border Controllers. When are these devices used? How does an SBC improve security? How does NAT interfere with normal VoIP? How does an SBC solve the NAT Traversal problem for VoIP? How is SIP Trunking and Carrier Peering Established? How can audio and video be improved by an SBC?

VoIP Media. How is audio and video encoded for transmission? What are codecs, and how are they selected? What is RTP? What is a jitter buffer, and what problems can it solve? How does Network congestion and QoS affect the user experience?

VoIP/IMS Network Components. What are the common equipment and terms you'll find used in VoIP/IMS networks? Which components are often combined? How do component failures affect ongoing phone calls? 

The future for VoIP Networks. What are the open challenges in most VoIP networks? What are the trends coming from software and hardware vendors? How does SDN and NFV affect network growth? How do you prepare to support VoLTE, and IPv6?

An added bonus: All training day participants will receive a hardcover training manual with detailed notes and diagrams covering all of the Training Day's topics.
