Which one is widely deployed in real world including enterprise or service provider environments?

Is SIP is fully supported on Cisco devices or its still under development ?

Depends on application, the protocol is deployed.

Like in cable service providers, the modems and gateways controlled by mgcp but in other side when PBX got involved H323 is deployed

Now a days, lot of service provider are facing out the PRI's and jumping to SIP trunk

Lot of cost saving,

In cisco enterprise side if you want to get full benefits of SIP, you can check the CUBE product.

Let me know if you need more info in this product

Thanks for your info. How bout full SIP support from Cisco equipment perspective? Can you refer me to the link or document where I can see the prectical implementation of MGCP and SIP in SP as well as Enterprise deployment? Can you share more on Cable service provider deployment?

So mostly when it comes to internal deployment then we will see more SCCP & SIP endpoint (Phone or any conference devices) but when we are talking about outside communication then H.323 and SIP will play big role, specially when you care communicating with third party voice network...
