  • Saving Money and Simplifying Architecture with the Session Initiation Protocol

SIP, the Session Initiation Protocol, offers the potential to reduce telecom operational cost and complexity, take advantage of new hosted services, and integrate disparate applications via unified communications to improve collaboration. The introduction of SIP session management offers the potential to simplify communications system and policy management by fundamentally rethinking the way organizations deploy and integrate disparate communications applications.

But implementing SIP is not without challenges. IT architects must leverage solid ROI case studies to build tangible business cases to justify investment. They must also address training and  interoperability concerns to ensure a successful deployment. Those organizations that meet these challenges stand to reap the benefits of SIP via delivery of new services and/or reduced operating costs.

As business communications evolve toward a de facto standard of Unified Communications, the "thread" that holds the various parts of the UC fabric together is SIP.

That said, the evolution to SIP is a major step that requires careful planning. And with the amount of work required, there must be a sound financial underpinning to make sure it is worthwhile.

Our colleague Irwin Lazar does an excellent job of examining this topic in this paper.
