We want to highlight another project that uses Kamailio, which together with FreeSwitch, is part of PyFreeBilling, an open source billing platform targeting VoIP wholesale. It is released under AGPLv3.
Kamailio SIP Server v5.0.3stable is out – a minor release including fixes in code and documentation since v5.0.2. The configuration file and database schema compatibility is preserved, which means you don’t have to change anything to update.
Kamailio v5.0.3 is based on the latest version of GIT branch 5.0. We recommend those running previous 5.0.x or older versions to upgrade. There is no change that has to be done to configuration file or database structure comparing with the previous release of the v5.0 branch.
You can find some good hints and tips about using Kamailio for building intelligent SIP routing.
As usual, we would like to thank for spending time and financial resources for promoting Kamailio. Should you present at a large world wide event or small meetup in your area and have some notes about Kamailio, we definitely appreciate it a lot and we are more than happy to host a copy of the slides on our events directory:
(1) the define conditions on SQL_ACC were removed — this was enabled for more than 10 years and only made the code look complex and hard to follow up its logic.
(2) the code related to DIAMETER accounting was relocated to acc_diameter (new) module. It was a consistent size of code that was not enabled for sooo… long. It is now a dedicated module, similar to acc_radius. The diameter accounting code, even a new module now, is in the same stage, compiling but not tested, in pair with auth_diameter module, it may work, but very likely not.
In summary, what’s important for those using the acc module — it offers the same functionality as it was enabled by default in the past 10 years or more: writing accounting records to syslog and sql databases — only the unused code was relocated.
The acc module is now slimmer, only with the code that it needs, therefore easier to maintain and enhance for the future. For any issue, as usual open a report on Github project portal.
As every August for more than a decade, the ClueCon conference takes place again in Chicago, USA, during August 7-10, 2017. Mainly organised by the people behind FreeSwitch project, ClueCon is among those events where you can meet a large group of experienced people with open source realtime communication technologies.
Kamailio will be present with a talk by Fred Posner, one of our very active advocates of the project in North America and not only. His presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, August 9, at 10:45am:
Besides Fred, you will be able to meet other relevant members of Kamailio project or friends from the VoIP world! If you haven’t checked the event so far, do it very soon and consider to register, no much time left and ClueCon is always worth attending! Read moreabout the event at:
IvozProvider is a provider oriented multilevel IP telephony solution for use on public internet or private networks. It allows multiple access levels within the same infrastructure, from operator administrator to granular brand and company administrators as well as end user.
Here is an excerpt from its presentation:
“IvozProvider was designed always keeping in mind the horizontal scaling of each of its elements, so it can handle hundred of thousands concurrent calls and what is more important, adapt the platform resources to the expected service quality.”
It relies on an handful of open source applications, including Kamailio, RTPEngine, Asterisk, MySQL or JsSIP.
