Tekelec Releases 'The SIP Pocket Guide'

By Patrick Barnard, Group Managing Editor, TMCnet


Tekelec (News - Alert), which provides carrier-grade network solutions that enable secure and instant delivery of phone calls and text messages, has published The SIP Pocket Guide, an exclusive reference guide for Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) (SIP) professionals.


This handy field guide, which is now available for download in TMCnet’s White Paper Library, can be used by technicians and other professionals to quickly identify information relevant to the interoperability of SIP.

SIP has been adopted by the telecommunications industry as the protocol of choice for signaling. It is the protocol for VoIP and other text and multimedia sessions, like instant messaging, video, online games and other services. It is used to create, modify and terminate sessions with one or more participants in an IP network.

SIP is an RFC standard (RFC3261) from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the body responsible for administering and developing the mechanisms that comprise the Internet.

Tekelec’s session management solutions allow telecom operators to manage the diverse applications, devices, technologies and protocols, across existing and evolving networks. The company’s technology ensures that operators have a clear migration path to SIP-based IP networks, with the flexibility to deploy solutions at a pace dictated by their business needs.

According to a recent report from industry research and consultancy firm Analysys (News - Alert) Mason, Tekelec's number portability solution is deployed in carriers serving 750 million subscribers, out of more than two billion global subscribers who had number porting capability in 2008. That means it has leading market share of 35 percent for real-time connection number portability solutions.
