How Standard is Standard? SIP Trunking and the Interoperability Question
- TC2 Blog
- David Rohde
When you go to install a new wide-area network technology that involves the interaction of carrier trunks with your premises equipment, do you:
a) trust statements of compliance by all parties with the technology’s open standards;
b) look to the carriers and equipment vendors involved to certify that each other party’s specific service or gear works with theirs, or
c) do you own interoperability tests?
This question is very much alive when enterprises go to buy “SIP Trunking” services from carriers.
