SIP SIMPLE client is a Software Development Kit for easy development of Real Time Applications based on SIP and related protocols for Presence, Audio, Instant Messaging (IM), File Transfers and Desktop Sharing. Other media types can be easily added by using an extensible high-level API.


SIP stands for 'Session Initiation Protocol', an IETF standard described by
[http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3261 RFC 3261]. SIP is an Internet application-layer control protocol that can establish,
modify and terminate multimedia sessions such as Internet telephony calls
(VoIP). Media can be added to (and removed from) an existing session.

SIP allows the endpoints to negotiate and combine any type of session they
mutually understand like Audio, Video, Instant Messaging (IM), File Transfer,
Desktop Sharing and provides a generic event notification system with
real-time Publications and Subscriptions about state changes that can be
used for asynchronous services like Presence, Message Waiting Indicator and
Busy Line Appearance.


The software allows you to create real-time SIP client or server applications without having to read [http://rfc3261.net/ the +1200 RFC documents] behind it. The SDK can be used to add Audio, Video, IM and Presence functionality to any Internet connected device as long as Python/C environment is supported by such platform.
