Extension of a Software IP Telephony Client
IP Telephony is a growing market today. Software IP Telephony applications
can offer advanced IP services, but there is a demand for a software client
that can offer the users all the functionality they might want and that is
compatible with other IP Telephony clients and servers on the Internet.
This thesis work focuses on a basic platform for such a client. I
investigate current clients and gather requirements of functionality needed
in an "ideal" client in collaboration with both users and developers. To
ensure compatibility, SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is chosen as the
protocol used in the client.
An existing Open Source project is chosen to use as a platform for a new
client -- the SIP Communicator; a SIP User Agent that supports voice and
video over IP. The SIP Communicator is then extended with the functionality
of handling incoming calls. The result is an Open Source software client for
IP Telephony that covers some of the needed functionality and that promises
to fulfil even more of it in the future, as the SIP Communicator project
