[jitsi-dev] semi-OT: SIP (SIMPLE) servers?


#1

Since Jitsi is such a great opensource, cross-platform client with SIP
and SIMPLE (presence extensions) support... I wonder if perhaps Emil
could enlighten me (us) about what opensource and hopefully
cross-platform servers are out there, he has tried, or he uses to run
jitsi.org?.

I wouldn't need a long essay, just a brief list of 3-4 of the most
powerful (or most popular) that you have tried (if any), and its
strenghts and weaknesses?.

I've googled around and basically I don't know where to start. I'm
familiar with traditional SIP but not SIMPLE. I've googled around and
found lots of toolkits, libraries, etc but not so many "ready to run"
solutions (or perhaps I've used the wrong arguments?).

Anyway, I decided to post it here due to the experience I know Emil
(and probably others) have with the involved protocols and software
offerings.

A friend is interested in setting up SIP/SIMPLE server on the public
cloud and use it for messaging between Java ME feature phones.
He asked me and I told him I really have no idea about SIMPLE.

If you believe this message is not appropiate for this list, then I
apologize in advance and then please reply off-list if that turns to
be the general concensus. If not, we can have a nice short chat on the
state of sip-simple servers that one can use with Jitsi. :slight_smile:

Hey Fernando,

Since Jitsi is such a great opensource, cross-platform client with
SIP and SIMPLE (presence extensions) support...

If you need SIMPLE then Kamailio is SIMPLy the best choice. It might be
a tiny little bit tricky to setup though.

I am not sure if sipXecs has SIMPLE but if it does, then it would also
be worth investigating.

Presence works quite well with Aterisk but, unfortunately, as far as
Instant Messaging goes, it's not compatible with Jitsi.

We've only used FreeSWITCH for VoIP so I am not sure what it has in
terms of IMP.

Hope this helps,
Emil

insight and could point towards a few examples.

Thanks a lot!. Much appreciated.
