Internet Communications Using SIP

This book provides expert guidance for SIP implementation.

From a reader review:

"I'll keep it short and sweet. I am one of the authors of SIP and of many of its related technologies that are discussed in this book. As such, I am frequently asked by people how they can quickly understand the benefits of SIP technology, why it is important to them, and what it can enable. The answer is simple - read the Sinnreich/Johnston book. ... This is a fabulous piece of work, written by two recognized leaders. I highly recommend it."




IP Telephony with H.323: Architectures for Unified Networks and Integrated Services

A book from three designers of H.323.

From a reader review:

"This book has definitely provided me a solid background in H323. In addition, it is a very useful reference, for example, I was able to follow the call setup and media setup packet flow of an IP phone captured via a protocol analyzer(ethereal), thanks to the very clear illustrations. This is definitely a must for network administrators/managers considering a multimedia network implementation."

From another reader review:

"This is a treasure of H.323, VOIP information! Excellent protocol information. This is no paper weight, gathering dust! I use the book and I'm glad to have it on my shelf."
