Based on sip what is sip
Based On SIP- What is SIP ?

A Signaling Protocol Usable for Wider Range of Applications

  • Name translation and user location

    • Mechanism to ensure that the call reaches the called party wherever they are located, ensuring that details of the nature of the call (Session) are supported.

  • Feature negotiation

    • This allows the parties to agree on the features supported - recognizing that not all the parties can support the same level of features.

  • Call participant management

    • New parties can be added or removed from a session, or the session transferred to a different device

  • Call feature changes

    • A user should be able to change the call characteristics during the course of the call, e.g. modality change
