New Year, New Charter for IMTC SIP Interconnect AG

Cisco Employee

imtc-connect.pngHappy New Year everyone! I wish you all the best in 2016.

We closed out 2015 on a high note with a successful IMTC Connect, Dec 16-17. The agenda was packed with great sessions, there were many accomplished speakers, and the content and corresponding discussions throughout the event were insightful and thought provoking.

The organizers will make all the presentations and recordings available soon. In the meantime, you can access my presentations here:

The SIP session featured the announcement of the new name, and more importantly, the new charter for what we have all come to know and love as the SIP Parity Activity Group. Going forward, the group is known as the SIP Interconnect Activity Group.


The IMTC SIP Interconnect Activity Group provides a forum for IMTC member companies to cooperate and pool resources on issues and extensions to SIP based enterprise communication applications. With its best practices documents providing a shared foundation, the group identifies and tackles challenges and opportunities with interoperability, operation, and integration of SIP based applications with emerging communication and networking technologies.

What We Do

The main activities of the group are to:

  1. Organize interoperability test efforts (both virtual and face-to-face). These are done in cooperation and coordination with the WebRTC, MANE, SSV, and UC SDN activity groups and with SIP Forum/SIPit
  2. Provide a forum for members to agree on an overall SIP profile for communication applications, particularly where it involves interconnecting with other application and network technologies (e.g. WebRTC, SDN, IPv6)
  3. Educate members on recent developments in SIP standards and market evolution

You can find additional info, including how to join the group and subscribe to our email list, at at SIP Interconnect AG. We welcome your expertise and input as we update and publish our best practice documents and make our plans for SuperOp! 2016.
