sipupdateTime to update yourself on SIP and Kamailio!

If you’ve been using OpenSER, SER or Kamailio for a long time without updating yourself on the new features, it’s about time you update yourself. In this 3-day class, you get an update on new features in Kamailio, time to lab together with other SIP engineers and learn about new features in SIP. Register today for your SIP update!

First class: Stockholm, Sweden, March 6-8 2013!

This class is built for persons that have used Kamailio, SER or OpenSER together with PBX-class tools like Asterisk, Yate and FreeSwitch and wants to learn more about the new features in Kamailio 4.0 and SIP. Kamailio 4.0 is the result of the merger between SIP Express Router and OpenSER. New features have been added in both version 3 and in version 4, to be released during Q1 2013. We will investigate them and do some simple labs to understand how to use these features in your platform.

The class assumes you have base knowledge about SIP and the Kamailio family of SIP servers – SER, OpenSER or Kamailio.

Learning SIP – the Session Initiation Protocol

SIP is more than 10 years old and have reached a maturity level where most phones and servers interoperate. The protocol suite has grown since 2002 and now has not only rich media features (single or multi-channel audio and video) but also presence and instant messaging.  New features are added and have given SIP new capabilities for SIP trunking, NAT traversal, multimedia handling and much more. 

What is Kamailio?

Kamailio - the open source SIP serverKamailio (formerly OpenSER), now at release v3.3, soon 4.0, is an open source SIP server, awarded Best of Open Source Networking Software 2009 by InfoWorld magazine, used world wide in VoIP platforms servicing millions of active subscribers and routing billions of call minutes per month. 

kamailio-4-0Kamailio is used on all kinds of devices in many different solutions. It’s a very flexible SIP server used as a proxy, presence server, application server, session border controller and much more. It’s based on SIP express router, the first Open Source SIP proxy and is part of the project. Kamailio has a large dedicated development team and is used in many enterprises and carriers. FCCN, the Portuguese University Network, operates Kamailio in over 50 universities. 1und1 in Germany has a Kamailio-based VoIP platform with millions of users. 

In this class, you will learn the basics of Kamailio and get a platform to build from when designing your future SIP Unified Communication solution. The class covers many aspects of Kamailio, from basic call handling to presence and security.

Who is this class for?

The course targets system administrators and people that work with large VoIP/telephony network services, as well as integrators of VoIP, instant messaging and presence with web 2.0 or similar technologies. Some experience of Kamailio and SIP is required, as we start from a basic understanding of how a SIP server like Kamailio works.

What you need to know beforehand

You need to have experience of operating SER/OpenSER or Kamailio and either Asterisk or FreeSwitch with SIP phones, building corporate or service-provider solutions. You need to know how to compile, install and configure these applications in Linux.

What makes this class unique?

  • The class is based on years of experience – not only from training, but also from actually implementing Kamailio and Asterisk in all kinds of networks, from service providers and enterprises to call centers and various applications
  • You will learn from a developer that knows the applications inside out
  • Interactivity – the class mixes classical teaching with labs in an interactive way
  • Standards based – the SIP sessions are not unique or special for Asterisk, FreeSwitch or Kamailio – they’re applicable to all SIP devices
  • In-depth-security – the class covers the SIP security standards and discusses the implementations in Kamailio, FreeSwitch and Asterisk
