SIPNOC 2014 Media and Analyst Access Policy


SIPNOC is being developed as an educational conference for technologists and engineers within the operator community to share ideas, experiences (both good and bad) and best practices in a private setting. As a result, the SIP Forum has decided not to issue credentials for media and analysts to attend the conference, and as a result SIPNOC conference sessions will be closed to media and analysts.

It is our hope that our SIPNOC conferees will appreciate this decision, and that our friends in the press and analyst community -- those that have supported the SIP Forum with their coverage of our activities over the years -- will understand the rationale that went into making this decision.

SIP Forum representatives and select speakers will be available for interviews and briefings following the conference upon request, as well as various content that emerges from the conference proceedings.
