The second annual SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC US 2012) will be held between June 25 and 27. It will focus on issues relating to SIP-based services.
Taking place at the Hyatt Dulles Hotel in Herndon, VA, the two-day conference will address the use of SIP-based services in service provider networks.
The conference is being held by the SIP Forum with business sponsorship opportunities. The SIP Forum promotes SIP-based technology and IP communications.
“SIPNOC was conceived as a meeting place for network operators to come together to share their deployment experiences and ideas on how to make IP communications better, and provide tangible results that further accelerate the development and worldwide propagation of SIP and SIP network services,” Marc Robbins, SIP Forum president and managing director, explained in a statement carried by TMCnet. “We expect SIPNOC US 2012 to pick up where last year’s inaugural event left off and be far more than just an educational conference, but a meeting of the brightest technical minds from across the global networking operator community.”
