SIPNOC 2018 is the latest and eighth iteration of the Forum’s successful “SIP Network Operators Conference”. The SIPNOC events are educational conferences focused on the challenges and opportunities related to the deployment of SIP-based carrier services.
While the international carrier and service provider community is the linchpin of the SIPNOC conferences, industry stakeholders involved in major SIP initiatives such as network equipment vendors, government agency representatives, large enterprise network operators and academic research organizations are also encouraged to attend.

The SIPNOC 2018 agenda will feature special presentations, tutorials, panel discussions and workshops covering key topics by network operators related to SIP-based services and infrastructure, including a special new one-day Robocall Summit – available to all SIPNOC 2018 Regular and Full Member “All-Access” attendees at no additional cost. The SIPNOC 2018 Robocall Summit, to be held on Tuesday, December 4th, 2018, has been specifically developed for industry stakeholders in the Robocall elimination/mitigation ecosystem, including service providers seeking to deploy new solutions, governmental regulators and agencies, equipment manufacturers, enterprise and government agency contact centers, application providers and data analytics firms.
To address unwanted and illegal Robocalls, the SIP Forum and the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) formed the Network to Network Interface (NNI) Joint Task Force to develop standards to verify and authenticate caller identification for calls carried over an Internet Protocol (IP) network using the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). The outcome of this effort has been the SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework.
The Robocall Summit, comprised of presentations and panel discussions, will examine in detail the work and milestones of this Task Force, as well as the efforts of various industry stakeholders. With currently more than 150 participants, the NNI Task Force has been meeting regularly for the past four years to define specifications to support SIP-based Service Provider to Service Provider IP Interconnection. The Task Force is comprised of telecommunications technical experts representing a range of telephony service providers and suppliers, both large and small, which serve both consumers and businesses.
Important, associated domestic and international regulatory issues will also be on the Summit agenda, as the United States Federal Communications Commission, the CRTC in Canada, and OFCOM in the United Kingdom, have all endorsed this important work.
