Service providers are deploying converged voice-and-data services based on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) to meet the demands of a changing business environment, to attract new customers, and to add to their portfolio of revenue-generating services. With its foundation in Internet protocols, SIP provides the ability to integrate traditional voice services with Web-based data services, including self-based provisioning, instant messaging, presence, and mobility services.
Cisco is enabling the advance of new communications services with a complete SIP-enabled portfolio including IP phones and analog telephone adaptors, packet voice gateways, proxy servers, call control and signaling, and firewalls. These products are available today. Only Cisco is dedicated to providing ubiquitous and seamless protocol interoperability in its packet voice solutions, and Cisco solutions support a variety of call control and standard protocols including H.323, Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP), and SIP that can co-exist in the same customer network.
