SIP, the hottest topic in enterprise communications today, offers enterprises the opportunity to save as much as 89 percent on their Wide Area network costs for voice, while also improving network management and resiliency.  The virtual event provided in-depth technical and market information to help enterprises take immediate action to begin planning SIP Trunking strategy and deploy these critical links in communications infrastructure.  

The virtual event covered the following topics:

  • Which carriers are really delivering on SIP Trunk offers, and which are lagging behind? How does this affect your likelihood of being able to procure SIP Trunks?
  • How do you select a SIP Trunk provider, and how do you get the best deal?
  • How are SIP Trunks configured, and what kind of Service Level Agreements can you get today?
  • What are the main implementation challenges-interoperability, security, network planning?
  • How does SIP Trunking change your approach to Unified Communications deployment?
  • What are the benefits of SIP Trunking beyond just cost? How can you use SIP Trunks to build a more resilient communications network?

In the Auditorium the virtual event offered a variety of sessions targeted to SIP Trunking as well as a keynote presentation from Lisa Pierce, President, Strategic Networks Group entitled "The State of SIP Trunking."

The Exhibit Hall offered booths from diamond sponsors Sprint and Verizon as well as sponsors Acme Packet and Level 3.  In the Networking Lounge event attendees were able to chat with peers one-on-one or in group chats.  All presentations were immediately available on demand.
