Mobicents Sip Servlets 0.9 Released !

Here is our new shiny Mobicents Sip Servlets 0.9 release !

The focus of this release has been to add support for converged HTTP/SIP failover with complete converged replication (both of HTTP Sessions and SIP Sessions), add Tooling support with a brand new Sip Servlets Eclipse plugin to create Sip Servlets applications and an eclipse embedded Sip Phone to be able to test those apps.

We also added support for JRuby so that you can create pure JRuby (and on Rails) VoIP applications able to start or receive calls.

Also as part of this release, the Mobicents IPBX advances to BETA1 version with the new Seam Telco Framework 2.0

Our Mobicents Sip Servlets implementation run (and is certified against the SIP Servlets 1.1 spec) on top of Apache Tomcat 6.0.14, JBoss AS 4.2.3.GA and JBoss AS 5.0.1.GA.

The other highlights of this release are :

* Java EE/EJBs/SIP converged applications are now supported for the JBoss 5 version
* Bundled User Guides for both Mobicents Sip Servlets and Mobicents Media Server
* More than 20 bug fixes

Downloads are here, online documentation is here, User Guide is here, the 0.9 changelog and roadmap is here and the Mobicents Google Group for feedback and questions is here.

Try out this new awesome release and give us your feedback !
Enjoy and Have Fun !

  1. I've looked around your website before (serveral times) (mobicents.com) and I could not find anywhere what is needed for a complete (hardware?) stack. And it annoyed me.

    The OBVIOUS: Do you need a type of gateway to be able to send phone messages? Do they cost? I'd start using this today but never could find out these details.

  2. @Anonymous : if you want to bridge to the old PSTN network, meaning if you want to be able to call cell phones or landline phones, yes you need a gateway. You can also use a VoIP Provider such as callwithus.com, callcentric.com, ... that will do the bridge of SIP messages to the PSTN network for you (see their charge rates for that). You can look at our IPBX example, it allows you to specify your VoIP provider to call the outside world.

  3. Thank you. This is exactly what I wanted to know. I'll into it.

  4. I have a PBX system in my office. Do I still need a gateway (such as listed above) for PSTN calls? Or I should look on how to interface mobicents with my PBX?

    Thank you.

  5. @florin : you just need to make sure your PBX system can route SIP calls on one side to the PSTN network on the other side. If it can do that, then yes you just need to interface Mobicents with your PBX

  6. This is what I have:


    It looks promising. I'm going to get started. We're a limited membership network of residential contractors. SIP/PSTN would be great for our referral notification system. Where do I learn about your services and rates?

  7. @florin : then yes you just need to connect to Mobicents Sip Servlets to your PBX system.
    You can use our project for free (as in beer) but if you need professional services like support with guaranteed response time, training, consulting services etc... (see http://www.jboss.com/products/platforms/communications/ ), you may want to send me a private message or send a mail at telco@redhat.com.

  8. Thanks. I'll study this and see about the next step.

  9. @florin : if you have any problems or need help. Feel free to raise your questions/doubts/problem on Mobicents Google group at http://groups.google.com/group/mobicents-public/topics

  10. are there any books/learning materials i can use to start.

  11. you can take a look at all the examples here to get you started http://www.mobicents.org/examples.html
