The author reflects on the issues related to the features of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), a proposed standard for initiating, modifying, and terminating and interactive user session that involves multimedia elements, developed at the test laboratory of Miercom company in the U.S. Miercom founder Ed Mier and Martin Milner, Miercom, client services manager, have cited that SIP vendors have been claiming that their protocol could support 500 or more features. The author suggested that delivering new features do not matter because in the end, meeting customer's expectation should comes first.
