All VoIP communication relies on session initiation protocol (SIP) for interoperability. SIPv2 is the current industry standard. However, SIP doesn’t standardize all of the necessary elements for a VoIP endpoint to be recognized within a VoIP network. In the case of a DSP device that is acting as an endpoint, it is necessary to have certain features and functionality built into the device to specifically orient the DSP system to operate effectively. This is why Biamp has invested a great deal of time over many years engineering compatible solutions directly into the firmware of our VoIP based hardware.

We chose the top VoIP providers, and built our Tesira VoIP firmware to function in an interconnected way. Our Tesira firmware is currently tailored and certified to work with VoIP solutions from Cisco, Avaya and Nortel, Mitel, and ShoreTel. With our Tesira 2.4 firmware update, detailed in a previous post, our VoIP devices (Tesira SVC-2 card, TesiraFORTÉ VI, and TesiraFORTÉ AVB VI) can operate as compatible endpoints for both Microsoft Lync Enterprise Voice and Skype for Business.

While most AV devices that can connect with VoIP systems are relatively new to this technology, we are entering on our eighth year of VoIP expertise. Biamp is one of the first DSP manufacturers to achieve compatibility with Lync Enterprise Voice and Skype for Business, and we remain the leaders in VoIP compatibility, training, and support.
