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.
