Enterprise Connect 2012: Level 3 to support SIP interconnection; SMS needs to be just another data type on IP PBX

A Level 3 spokesperson said the company was working towards enabling SIP peering across all of its customers, and expected to roll it out later this year.

The conversation came up during a wider discussion of Level 3’s enterprise services and customer’s desire for videoconferencing and other SIP-based services to “just work.”

Discussion also took place around the proliferation of SMS text messaging within the consumer world. The spokesperson pointed out that many IP PBXes did not have built in support for text messaging as just another SIP-style data type, so people could send and receive SMS messages within the corporate environment in cases where people didn’t need/want to call, but simply needed to pass on a quick piece of information.
