Complete Protocol dictionary, glossary and reference
Skinny, also known as Skinney Client Control Protocol (SCCP), is a Cisco proprietary protocol used between Cisco Call Manager and Cisco VOIP phones. It is also supported by some other vendors. For VOIP solutions, the end station of a LAN or IP-based PBX must be simple to use, familiar and relatively cheap. SCCP defines a simple and easy to use architecture, while the H.323 recommendations produce quite an expensive system. An H.323 proxy can be used to communicate with the Skinny Client using the SCCP.
