A: Keeping up with developments of SIP, as well as working on new protocols, such as WebRTC, which is evolving faster than any protocol before.

Q: Why is it important for your company to be a COMPTEL member?
A: To have the ability to meet and network with companies that we have never met before, as well as supporting the work that COMPTEL does.
