Why You Need SIP Protocol for Voice Communications
SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is the communications protocol 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 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 in conjunction with video and instant messaging. Future enhancements will allow SIP applications like video conference calls, application sharing, home monitoring, and interactive gaming for companies in Meadow Vista.
Producers of SIP hardware are rapidly designing new products and software to take advantage of this new Internet communications scheme. SIP telephones, PC client applications, SIP servers, routers, and firewalls are now on the market from companies such as Ingate Systems and Cisco.
Prior to installing a SIP solution in your business, you should take into account the proper configuration of your corporate firewall to support SIP. Many of the common firewalls already installed in business offices are not designed to allow the SIP protocol. First, SIP media streams are transferred over dynamically assigned UDP ports that are normally blocked on firewalls. Second, SIP clients within 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 broadband provider or Metro fiber provider is able to support the SIP protocol from your internal network to the outside world. Your IT manager will need to evaluate how to correctly support SIP to overcome 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.
