Description: The purpose of this on-line course is to provide an understanding of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). SIP is a signaling, instant messaging and presence protocol used for controlling multi-media sessions. It provides a way to establish voice, video and advanced messaging between devices. The focus of this course is to gain an in-depth understanding of SIP and how it is used to setup and release calls in a packet network. This includes calls that originate and/ or terminate in the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). The student will have a practical understanding of the messaging, the protocol structure, and analysis of the protocol for various services is provided.
