El seminario permite emplear una metodología de diseño de redes de datos Top-Down, con equipos del fabricante CISCO SYSTEMS para ofrecer una solución. Inicialmente los asistentes conocerán los modelos de equipos existentes y sus arquitecturas electrónicas. Aprenderán a realizar la configuración, partiendo de las necesidades de conectividad interna y externa. Se crea una topología física y lógica, y se diseña un plan de direccionamiento IPv4 e IPv6. Paralelamente, se seleccionan los equipos de las capas de acceso, distribución y núcleo LAN. Estos equipos consisten en conmutadores capa 2, de capa 3, encaminadores, dispositivos WiFi, servidores entre otros. Se emplea el simulador CISCO Packetracer. Se desea que los asistentes configuren políticas de calidad de servicio y de seguridad en una solución.

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP): evolution and applications

Dr. Carlos Moreno (Universidad Central de Venezuela).
Instructor CISCO SYSTEMS. Visitante postdoctoral Fundación Carolina.

The SIP protocol (Session Initiation Protocol – RFC3261) was designed with the aim of simplifying signaling processes in multimedia communications present in packet-switching networks and is the basis of today's converged architectures. It is implemented in various proprietary and open hardware- and software-based solutions. It is openly present in free software or bundled with web browsers containing Google's WebRTC framework or on equipment from hardware manufacturers. There are applications based on WebRTC such as EasyRTC, JITSI and CISCO Webex that are the result of this evolution. The SIP protocol works securely and with a minimum level of quality of service in signaling processes when pre-established policies are applied using other protocols.

This seminar will allow attendees to design and implement a converged network based on SIP signaling that is secure and interoperable with other protocols. It is explained how the confidentiality, integrity and authentication are present.

Table of contents:

  • Day 1 (Tuesday 22 November 2022, 14:30 - 16:30)
    VoIP signalling protocols in TCP/IP networks. H.323 versus SIP. History of SIP. IETF standardization. Advantages of SIP. Evolution of SIP vs. Google WebRTC. SIP entities. User agents and servers. Addressing. Server types (proxy, registrar, location). SIP/H.323/WebRTC gateways.
    Assessment at the end of the session.
  • Day 2 (Thursday 24 November 2022, 14:30 - 16:30)
    Messages structure. Header fields. Session Description Protocol (SDP). Supported codecs. Methods and responses. Transactions and dialogs. SIP analysis using protocol analyzers (Wireshark). Platforms interoperability with SIP.
    Assessment at the end of the session.
  • Day 3 (Tuesday 29 November 2022, 14:30 - 16:30)
    Quality of Service (QoS) in SIP signalling. Differentiated Services and SIP. Security in architectures with SIP protocol. TLS vs. DTLS. Confidentiality, integrity and authentication in SIP. Multiconference with SIP. SIP and cloud computing.
