Please contact us for information about prerequisites.
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is one of the most important voice signaling protocols within service provider VoIP networks and is supported by most IP telephony system vendors. As such, it is an ideal protocol for interconnecting different VoIP systems and networks. An understanding of the features and functions of SIP components, and the relationships that the components establish with each other, is important in implementing a scalable, resilient, and secure SIP environment. This course describes how to configure SIP. It explores the features and functions of the SIP environment, including its components, how these components interact, and how to accommodate scalability and survivability.
The Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) enables the remote control and management of voice and data communications devices at the edge of multiservice IP packet networks. Because of its centralized architecture, MGCP overcomes the distributed configuration and administration problems inherent in the use of protocols such as H.323. This course describes how to configure MGCP on a gateway, and the features and functions of the MGCP environment.
