Why You Need SIP Protocol for Voice Communications
SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is the communications protocol for person-to-person real time traffic over the Web. Its technical specifications come from the SIP working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force. SIP provides access to the public switched telephone network for voice data at 3 kHz bandwidth and common number dialing using Voice over IP (VoIP). It can also be expanded to deal with IP telephony combined with video and instant messaging. Future enhancements will enable SIP applications like video conference calls, application sharing, home monitoring, and interactive gaming for businesses in Greenwood.
SIP is usually associated with a method to implement the functionality of common telephony over an IP network. It is replacing the older, less adaptable protocols used in the old days such as H.323 and MGCP. These older protocols functioned at a very low level to connect IP phones to the public telephone network. SIP, however, provides a sophisticated and well-defined way to network the enterprise. For example, SIP uses email addresses as the SIP address in place of a telephone number over the regular telephone network.
Prior to installing a SIP solution in your organization, you should consider the appropriate configuration of your corporate firewall to support SIP. Many of the common firewalls currently deployed in business offices are not designed to allow the SIP protocol. First, SIP media streams are transferred over dynamically assigned UDP ports that are usually blocked on firewalls. Second, SIP clients inside a firewall can not be accessed using IP addresses since these addresses are local and unique to the LAN. Third, you need to ensure that either your T1 line broadband carrier or Metro fiber carrier is able to support the SIP protocol from your internal network to the outside world. Your IT manager will need to ascertain how to correctly support SIP to get around these technical challenges. By including a SIP proxy and registrar for managing the firewall, it is possible to handle complex SIP situations for reliable and private communications.
