October 3, 2007

Today, I read and article that really took this to the extreme, saying that SIP had better "voice performance". SIP uses RTP. H.323 uses RTP. SIP uses the same codecs as H.323. They have the same voice performance. Is the success of SIP dependently entirely on ignorance and misinformation?
