h1. Features

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

The library has cross platform capabilities on Linux OS, Mac OSX and Microsoft Windows. The library should work with minimal changes on any platform that supports C and Python development environments. The SIP and media stacks are based on pjsip 1.0 version with relevant patches from later versions applied.

To see _SIP SIMPLE client SDK_ features in action you can try "Blink": or "SylkServer":

h2. General

* Multiple SIP Accounts support
* Non-blocking, asynchronous, notifications based engine
* Configuration Framework
* TLS Security for SIP signaling (SIP)
* TLS Security for media (MSRP, XCAP)
* Multiple Media Types per Session (e.g. Audio + IM)
* Trace capability for all underlying protocols
* Supports re-INVITE for adding and removing media
* Automatically handling if IP Address changes
* VPN friendly
* Conference Audio Mixer
* Wav Player and Recorder
* Acoustic Echo Cancelation
* Answering Machine
* Wide-band Internet codecs: Speex and G722
* PSTN compatible codecs: G711, iLBC, GSM

Supported media types:

* Audio (RTP/sRTP)
* Instant Messaging (MSRP)
* File Transfer (MSRP)
* Desktop Sharing (VNC)

All media types can be combined together in the same SIP session.

The library uses a separated from the core lookup mechanism for the next hop routing. This important feature allows the library to be used for building SIP clients that operate in combination with any SIP provider (by employing RFC 3263 DNS lookups), in a server-less LAN operation (using Bonjour protocol) or integrated into a network overlay developed by a third party (e.g. P2PSIP overlay).
