Avaya has sponsored the free eBooklet- SIP Communications for Dummies-2nd edition. The book is written by Lawrence Miller and Peter Gregory, with a foreword by Alan Johnston and covers a range of topics to introduce you to the basic concepts of SIP (Session Initiation Protocol). Chapters include:
- SIP at a Glance
- The Case for SIP
- How SIP Transforms Communications
- SIP Interoperability
- SIP in the Contact Center
- SIP and Intelligent Communications
- Ten Reason to Use SIP-Enabled Solutions by Avaya
In the Foreword, Johnston says “So what is SIP and why is the industry buzzing about it? This book will tell you. What can you use SIP for? This book will tell you that too. Why is SIP so important? You’ll find that here too.”
The last chapter is obviously a little self-serving, but it is sponsored by Avaya. Overall the booklet is a good primer on SIP and is a solid resource. The price is right, so you can’t fault Avaya for plugging its products in the process.
It is definitely worth a read. Check out SIP Communications for Dummies – 2nd Edition.
