|Data Connection Participates in Global SIP Interoperability Test Event, SIPit 17|
London, UK: September 19, 2005. Data Connection Limited (DCL),
the world's leading independent provider of communications protocol
software, announced today its successful participation in SIPit 17, the
seventeenth SIP interoperability test event organized by the SIP Forum (www.sipforum.org) which was held in Stockholm, Sweden over the past week.
A SIPit, Session Initiation Protocol Interoperability Test, is a
heavily engineer-focused event that offers a venue for developers of
SIP-based products to meet and perform a wide variety of interop tests.
The SIP software engineers are usually on site fixing any bugs that may
arise, which speeds up the testing process and resolves future
interoperability problems. The SIPits, held twice a year, are a driving
force shaping SIP into a protocol that interoperates globally for
real-time Internet communication services.
Data Connection successfully tested its DC-SIP and DC-SBC solutions with a variety of SIP proxies, servers, registrars, IP phones, softphones, gateways, and B2BUAs. Tim Hall, Data Connection's Vice President of Network Protocols, said, "The SIPits are incredibly valuable to the product development cycle. In just a few days, we were able to prove interoperability with our DC-SBC solution and numerous SIP platforms which better prepares our products for real world scenarios."
DC-SIP is one of Data Connection's family of VoIP protocol toolkits. These provide portable source code, full reference designs, test applications, customization tools, and pre-integration with all the leading Operating Systems. The toolkits, combined with Data Connection's superior customer service organization and unrivalled commitment to quality, provide customers with significant project cost savings and the quickest time to market.
Drawing from technology and experience from multiple divisions of Data Connection the Network Protocols division has developed a fully portable Session Border Controller (DC-SBC) software solution designed specifically for system vendors. Data Connection's extensive VoIP and IP routing heritage provides OEMs with a field-hardened SBC solution that is deployable immediately, delivering dramatic cost and time to market savings. Like all Data Connection products, DC-SBC is developed with the highest quality standards and is architected for unparalleled modularity, flexibility, scale, and reliability.
