SIP SIMPLE client SDK is a Software Development Kit for easy development of
SIP end-points that support rich media like Audio, Instant Messaging, File
Transfers, Desktop Sharing and Presence. Other media types can be easily
added by using an extensible high-level API.

== Background ==

SIP stands for 'Session Initiation Protocol', an IETF standard described by
[ 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.

== Features ==

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 SDK is suitable for building client or application server end-points, here are some client and server examples:

* Blink
* SylkServer
