If you are a service provider, PBX developer or maker of a SIP-enabled product or service, and you are interested in the SIPconnect Certification Testing Program, this page provides the information you need.

The SIPconnect Certification Testing Program is a vehicle through which eligible companies can license the use of the SIP Forum's 'SIPconnect Certified' certification mark.  A certification mark is a special kind of mark that asserts a product or service's compliance with a registered standard. 

The "SIPconnect Certified" mark is the official brand of the leading standard for SIP Trunking products and services.

When a user sees our mark, they know they have the best chance of interoperability and broad feature support expected from a SIP Trunking product or service. 

According to the SIPconnect Certification Testing Program License Agreement, a SIPconnect 1.1 Certified product or service is one that is 100% compliant with all mandatory requirements of the SIPconnect Technical Recommendation v.1.1

The combined testing and license fee to participate in the the SIPconnect Certification Testing program is a discounted $5,000 US for Founding Sponsors of the Program; $7,500 for SIP Forum Full Member companies, and $10,000 for non-Full Members. This fee provides for a two-year term of eligibility, and is per product or service offering to be tested.

In addition, Founding Sponsors of the Program enjoy a number of additional benefits including an extended 3-year term including continuous recognition of support; benefits that carry over to subsequent program updates (i.e. SIPconnect 2.0) if they fall within the 3-year term; Priority Scheduling of Tests; Exclusive Promotional Activities; and the option to be renewed. For more information about this special sponsorship program, please contact Marc Robins, SIP Forum Managing Director, at marc "dot" robins "at"
