Roy, you your are right. It is focused on the SIP and H.323 interworking.
I attached the tentative agenda for the BOF. Depending on the speakers we
identify, the agenda may inlcude some presenters but the main focus will not
BOF: SIP and H.323 Interworking (sip323)
Time requested: one 1 hour slot
Chairs: Joon Maeng <joon_maeng at vtel.com>
Dave Walker <drwalker at ss8networks.com>
There are two competing standards in the industry for establishing and
managing real-time interactive media communications over IP. One is the
proposed IETF standard, Session Initiation Protocol (RFC 2543), and the
other is the ITU recommendation, H.323. Although they use the same
protocol (RTP) for media streaming, they cannot establish calls between
them. In the absence of any formal interoperability standards, many
vendors are beginning to develop proprietary application gateways for
interworking between SIP and H.323.
In order to provide interoperability between the two standards, it is
urgent to define a common interworking specifications for the industry.
The recognition of the need for this interworking specification has lead
to calls for its development from both manufacturers and service
providers, individually and through industry consortia (such as IMTC)
and other bodies concerned with interoperability (such as ETSI).
In this BOF, we are going to discuss SIP and H.323 interworking issues,
execution plans and the scope of the work.
- Do we need SIP-H.323 interworking?
- Coordination with other groups?
- Scope of interworking
- Outcome of the work?
- SIP: Session Initiation Protocol (RFC 2543)
- SDP: Session Description Protocol (RFC 2327)
- ITU recommendations: H.323, H.225.0, H.245
