SIPit 26 is over and everything was packed together quickly, thanks to help from sponsors and participants. It did surprise me a lot how quickly we could pack all the phones, cables, tables and equipment together. Three days to set everything up, three hours to take it down.

 

I think it’s been a great SIPit. Unfortunately, I did not have time to test much myself, but I will take the oppurtunity to test at the next SIPit. On the other hand, we’ve run many successful multiparty tests. Successful tests doesn’t mean that everything works as expected. It’s a good thing to locate new bugs in implementations, to find issues with the standard specifications.  That’s exactly why we run the SIPit interoperability tests.

 

SIPit26 added a lot of focus on IPv6. We integrated IPv6 in standard tests, we added IPv6 self-tests and we run IPv6 multiparty tests. I’ll write more about the results and experiences learned later.

 

A big thank you to:

  • The SIP Forum and Robert Sparks for organizing SIPits
  • My co-host, TANDBERG.
  • The sponsors: .se, Ingate, Intertex
  • Our partner, the IPv6 Forum
  • SNOM Technologies that provided all the phones
  • My family that helped me set things up. Lisa printed badges and welcome packs, Erik that helped me building the network
  • Lasse Andersson at Whizom who helped me all week, including setting up everything
  • Electrum Conference in Kista, that took care of us in a good way and handled everything very professionally.
  • All the SIPit partipant companies and attendees. Together we make the SIP world better, promoting interoperability between vendors and products.

Being a SIPit host is an experience I would happily repeat. Join the club and offer to host a coming SIPit. Next up is Asia, possibly Australia. After that it’s back to the USA again. Now, it’s time for me to get back to a normal life and get out in my garden.

With SIPit greetings from a sunny Sollentuna!
