SIP-to-SIP: The Interop Dilemma (and How You Can Fix It)
In our technology-rich world, it’s easy to take for granted how things work. Take the global positioning system (GPS) for example. With a GPS device, a route as complicated as Boston to Atlanta can be achieved with the simple input of a destination; the only problems the driver has to be concerned with are gas prices and potholes. Technology advancements like this have made many things in our daily life, such as travel and wireless communications, thoughtless—which can be good and bad. The reality is that most of us aren’t concerned about how things work so long as they work well. Yet that doesn’t change the fact that many seemingly simple things are actually quite complex. Telecommunications networks, for example, are remarkably complex systems. We take it for granted that our phones and mobile devices talk to one another, but rarely do we think about how they communicate together.
