Why You Need SIP Protocol for Voice Over IP
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is the communications technology for person-to-person voice data over the Internet. Its technical specifications come from the SIP working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force. SIP gives 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 extended to handle IP telephony combined with video and instant messaging. Future improvements will allow SIP applications such as video conference calls, application sharing, home monitoring, and interactive gaming for businesses in Sheffield.
Suppliers of SIP equipment are quickly crafting new products and software to take advantage of this new Internet communications method. SIP telephones, PC client applications, SIP servers, routers, and firewalls are now available from companies such as Ingate Systems and Cisco.
Before setting up a SIP plan in your business, you should consider the appropriate configuration of your corporate firewall to support SIP. Many of the common firewalls already deployed in business offices are not designed to allow the SIP protocol. First, SIP media streams are transmitted over dynamically allocated UDP ports that are normally blocked on firewalls. Second, SIP clients inside a firewall can not be reached using IP addresses because these addresses are local and private to the LAN. Third, you need to ensure that either your T1 line carrier or Ethernet fiber provider is able to handle the SIP protocol from your internal network to the outside world. Your IT manager will need to evaluate how to appropriately support SIP to overcome these technical problems. By including a SIP proxy and registrar for controlling the firewall, it is possible to deal with complex SIP scenarios for secure and confidential communications.
