Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a widely adopted standard for VoIP systems, devices, and software. In this short but intensive course, you will review the SIP architecture, including the components such as media servers, application servers, gateways and endpoints. You will study the SIP messages, when and why they are used, how they are handled, and the components of each SIP message that is transported on the network. You will learn about the design components and process, with the application and sizing of each component covered in detail. You will also learn how VoIP works, its benefits, and its implementation. At the end of the day, you will have a very good understanding of the SIP protocol, messaging, routing, components, and design considerations.

We can transform this course into an Action Learning Workshop by including an extended hands-on design and procurement exercise related to your organization’s specific requirements.


Customize It!

We can adapt this course to your group’s background and project requirements at little to no added charge. We can focus the course on business issues or implementation details depending on the varying requirements of audiences such as engineers, marketing or sales personnel, procurement specialists, and managers or executives. The optional third day allows you to immediately apply the course content to the development of a SIP design/procurement document for your organization.


Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

If you are a communications, systems, or software engineer; data network, telephony, IT, or marketing/sales professional; technical or strategy manager or consultant, or someone charged with evaluating, designing, or implementing security mechanisms, processes, and policies for your SIP-based (such as a VoIP) system, applications, or services, this course is meant for you.



While there are no particular prerequisites for this course, a technical background and prior exposure to telecommunications or IT issues will certainly be helpful.
