This paper examines the versatility of the Session Initiation Protocol and the pitfalls that versatility introduces to the telecommunications world. There are three main areas of focus for the pitfalls. First is signaling overhead and the extra traffic that SIP introduces on the network. Second is vendor interoperability and the fact that there is no true finalized SIP standard. Finally the issue of security is addressed. The issue of signaling overhead will be surveyed, and the security and interoperability issues will be focused on more in depth.
