SIP Extensions for the eXtensible Service Protocol

University essay from KTH/Mikroelektronik och Informationsteknik, IMIT


The switched telephony network was designed for voice calls. Expansion of datacommunication has lead to a wide range of experimentation to create new services.

Theses services take place outside the network. When adding new services we currently encounter problems due to limitations of the simple devices at end points. Theo Kanter has proposed a new model to remove these limitations; this model is called “Adaptive Personal Mobile Communication”. The model consists of several components in the application layer of ISO standard. This model is based on peer to peer connections and the purpose of this model is to move services from within the networks to end point devices and avoid using central servers within the network.

The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for establishing multimedia sessions allows us to move the point of integration for multimedia service integration out to the end-points. This project concerns the implementing of a prototype of this model as an SIP extension along with it evaluation. SIP offer addressing, naming, and localization of resources in this project.

This report presents different design alternatives for XSP as an SIP extension, and the chosen model presents as a result of comparing of these design alternatives.
