Cable VoIP enterprise to benefit from SIP Forum's SIPconnect Version 1.1

The cable industry's move into the world of all-IP commercial applications should get a boost from the latest version of the SIP Forum's SIPconnect technical specification--especially when it comes to providing voice services.

SIPconnect 1.1 improves on the original version that was ratified in 2008 by providing a more tightly configured set of guidelines for seamless interoperability between SIP-enabled IP-PBXs and service provider networks, including cable operators.

The latest iteration enhances the direct IP peering connection between SIP-enabled enterprises and service provider networks by offering "enterprises and whole industries such as manufacturing, finance and healthcare real value by promoting--and enabling--interoperability," said SIP Forum Chairman Richard Shockey, who also served as chairman of the SIPconnect Task Group.
