SIP.edu Cookbook

SIP.edu Cookbook:

The goals of the Internet2 SIP.edu project are to:

By becoming "SIP.edu-enabled", a school makes all of its telephones (and users) reachable via SIP. For instance, although Bob at BigU may know nothing about SIP and may have a five year old PBX phone on his desk, SIP.edu allows Alice to call Bob using Bob's email address (e.g. bob@bigu.edu). The initial SIP.edu architecture works by integrating the legacy campus PBX and person directory with two new components: a SIP proxy server and a SIP-PRI gateway.

Once a school has deployed the initial SIP.edu architecture, it can begin to explore and implement other SIP-related services. While SIP.edu focuses primarily in voice communications, SIP is media-agnostic and can support video, text, and other media.

    As far as I know, we do not have SIP-related services. Supposedly the Cisco software we use will eventually support SIP, but that could be a long time. Not sure if that's necessary for this I2 thing, but it seems it might make it easier.
