Operators are encouraged to present SIP-related success stories, deployment issues and concerns in their networks, while equipment vendors and other industry stakeholders are invited to work with operators to present real-world deployment experiences.

The SIPNOC conferences attract leading technical and operations personnel from the global carrier community and have earned high praise from attendees for their educational, non-commercial and technical content that focuses on the real-world challenges operators face when deploying SIP services in global IP networks. SIPNOC 2018 attendees will include 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.
