From its website, Techistan, an online technology magazine, defines itself as: “Techistan is a time and place where peaceful debate and discourse on technology rule. It is the gathering of the brightest in the world, Techistan and you.”
The discussion begins with the origins of the project, that started back in 2001 as SIP Express Router (SER), forked in 2005 to OpenSER, then it was renamed in 2008 to Kamailio. Shortly after the rename, Kamailio and SER projects started the work of integration, at this time being again same software application – development being hosted at sip-router.org.
The year 2010 is summarized during the podcast (see also Kamailio 2010 Awards), marking the release of two major versions based on the new architecture, v3.0.x and 3.1.x – development done together by the two teams of Kamailio and SER:
Today’s world wide hot topics such as reach communication services or security were debated, underlining Kamailio’s advanced implementations for such services, from a SIP SIMPLE presence server with RLS and embedded XCAP server to asynchronous TLS communication able to handle several ten thousands active connections on a single instance running on a laptop.
The presentation approached the recently launched SIP:Provider CE project, an out-of-the-box VoIP servicing platform with Kamailio for SIP routing and management interfaces for administration, monitoring and user portal. It ended with a look at the future, the current work to integrate IMS extensions and where we will be in real time communications in few years.
