Once a year, organizations bring a wide range of implementations to the SIPit for a week of testing to refine both the specification and implementation of the world's next communication infrastructure.
The purpose of the SIPit event is to test for interoperability of SIP implementations, to determine the source of incompatibilities, inform new standards work, and drive refinement of the specifications. This event is open only to implementers with working SIP implementations. It is not a trade show, public demonstration, conference or workshop. The individual results of the event are kept confidential. Summaries of the aspects of the protocol tested at each event are available at www.sipit.net/SIPitSummaries.
SIPit 30 -- was held in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, February 18-22 2013, and was hosted by Cisco Systems. The results from SIPit 30 can be found HERE.
SIPit 29 -- the 29th iteration of the premier International test event for real-time IP communications using the Session Initiation Protocol -- was hosted by ETSI in Monte Carlo, Monaco, 24-28 October, 2011. The advanced testing sessions at the SIPit 29 focused on appropriate handling of early media from more than one source, advanced multimedia sessions, secure media, and resilient operation in the presence of NATs and firewalls. The results from SIPit 29 can be found HERE.
SIPit 28 was hosted by Digium on April 11–15, 2011 and held at the Jackson Center in Huntsville, Alabama's Research Park. A special social event on April 12, 2011 included private admission to the US Space and Rocket Center Museum and a dinner buffet and bar under a real Saturn V rocket at the Davidson Center!

SIPit 27 was held in Taipei, Taiwan on November 15th to 19th, 2010, and was hosted by ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and ITRI, the Industrial Technology Research Institute.
SIPit 26 was held in Kista - the telecom valley outside Stockholm, Sweden - on May 17-21, 2010 and was hosted by Edvina and Tandberg and sponsored by Ingate, Intertex and .se.
SIPit 25 was held at the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) in Durham, New Hampshire, on September 14-18, 2009.
SIPit 24 was hosted by the Japan Network Information Center (JPNIC) and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Tokyo, Japan the week of May 18-22, 2009.
SIPit 23 was hosted by ETSI in Lannion, FRANCE, October 13-17, 2008.
SIPit (Session Initiation Protocol Interoperability Test) is a weeklong event where people bring SIP-enabled products (and services) and exercise them to improve overall interoperability across multiple implementations.
SIPit events are open to anyone with a working SIP implementation. The goal of the events is to refine both the protocol and its implementations. The SIPITs are a driving force shaping SIP into a globally interoperable protocol for real time Internet communication services.
Currently, the SIPit events are held twice a year. Different companies or organizations host each event, and each host chooses the venue.
