Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Services


Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a communications protocol used for controlling communication sessions such as voice and video over IP networks.


IT professionals readily acknowledge the productivity and collaboration advantages of unified communications, and know those advantages are most effectively achieved through SIP-based unified communications. Our objective is to help you reach a business decision for investing in a SIP-enabled infrastructure using a self-funding model based on reduced networking charges.

Session Initiation Protocol services are the future of technology for everything from voice over IP to video conferencing and streaming multimedia distribution, to instant messaging and presence information. Altura is fully up to speed with SIP technology and is ready to assist customers as they adopt Session Initiation Protocol services for their communications environments. In addition, a session border controller (SBC) is deployed for adding security to the media stream when deploying Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in enterprises to include deployments between a service provider’s access network and a backbone network to provide service to enterprise customers.


The benefits of SIP for businesses can typically include:

  • Reduced costs
  • Improved productivity and customer service
  • Faster speed to market for deploying new applications to users
  • Interoperability across vendors, for a better return on investment (ROI)

While SIP is being implemented for use in multimedia communications such as voice and video calls over IP, it is still far from being a ‘plug-and-play’ technology. Altura’s experience in SIP testing and deployment helps ensure that our customers can start realizing the benefits as soon as possible.


Our Professional Services focuses around three core areas:

  1. Enablement: Planning, designing, developing, and integrating SIP technology, including SBC, that helps ensure you get full value form your investment
  2. Optimization: Managing your roadmap from traditional digital communications to newer SIP-enabled technologies, leveraging existing investments, and avoiding costly rip-and-replace scenarios.
  3. Innovation: Taking advantage of the right technologies to become more accessible, more customer-friendly, and ultimately more profitable.
