Cisco CallManager SIP Features
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology is quickly becoming the preferred method of communication for businesses, and Cisco CallManager is one of the most widely-used VoIP systems for enterprise-level businesses. Cisco CallManager supports Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for delivering voice and multimedia communications over IP networks. SIP is a widely-used protocol for establishing, managing, and terminating multimedia sessions, such as voice and video calls, conferences, and multimedia data sharing.
Cisco CallManager, which is part of the Cisco Unified Communications system, provides a number of features and options for SIP-based VoIP communications. These features include:
