SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC) Starts Tonight in Herndon, Virginia

Dan York

Tonight begins the third annual SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC) in Herndon, Virginia, where technical and operations staff from service providers around the world with gather to share information and learn about the latest trends in IP communications services — and specifically those based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Produced by the nonprofit SIP Forum, SIPNOC is an educational event sharing best practices, deployment information and technology updates. Attendees range from many traditional telecom carriers to newer VoIP-focused service providers and application developers.

The SIPNOC 2013 agenda includes talks on:

  • VoIP and communications security
  • Business strategies for service providers
  • Regulatory and policy issues
  • Multiple sessions about WebRTC and how that will change IP communications
  • IPv6 and VoIP
  • HD audio
  • Standards relating to VoIP and SIP

The main sessions begin tomorrow with a keynote presentation from FCC CTO Henning Schulzrinne where I expect he will talk about some of the challenges the FCC has identified as they continue to push the industry to move away from the traditional PSTN to the world of IP communications.

I've very much enjoyed the past SIPNOC conferences and will be back there again this year leading sessions about: IPv6 and VoIP; how DNSSEC can help secure VoIP; and a couple of sessions related to VoIP security. I'm very much looking forward to the discussions and connections that get made there — and if any of you are attending I look forward to meeting you there.

SIPNOC 2013 will not be livestreamed, but if you are in the DC area (or can easily get there), registration is still open for the event. I suspect you'll also see some of us tweeting with the hashtag #sipnoc.
