IIT Information Technology and Management students recently presented and demonstrated their fall 2014 real-time communications projects to a group of communications professionals. Students were challenged to conduct research, and to test and deploy solutions as part of the project-based learning approach at IIT School of Applied Technology. Unlike a final exam, these students had to provide a working system and defend it in front of an audience of industry professionals—some with 30 years of experience.
- The Gateway Project—A gateway SIP proxy interconnects the lab test beds enabling mobile calls to flow through to our NG911 test bed, voice-over IIT system, and WebRTC environment. (Student–Cruz Tovar)
- NG9-1-1: Performance Testing, a Production-Ready NG-911 System for the Counties of Southern Illinois—Our Emergency Services IP Network (ESINet) is used by the National Emergency Numbers Association to test the interoperability of elements of the ESINet architecture. Students supported the setup and testing, and also did performance tests for early adopters of the new technology. Both types of testing were described. (Student–Bart Dworak)
- Non-Repudiation of Voice-Over-SIP Conversations (Student–Yango A. Colmenares)
- VoIIT Project v2: Building a VoIIT Test Bed Using FreeSWITCH (Students–Nkechi Ijeh and Shefali Verma)
- SIP: SIP Performance Benchmarks—Automated Application of a SIP Performance Test Methodology to Various SIP Proxies: Results and Their Analyses. (Students–Yueqing Zhang, Arthur Clouet, and Oluseyi S. Awotayo)
- SIP Mobility—OpenBTS, a SIP-based cellular-phone system, was demonstrated, and its architecture, behavior, and use was described. (Student Adesola Ayodele)
