Session Initiation Protocol Server Implementation For Linksys Routers, Matthew Duder Dec 2009

Session Initiation Protocol Server Implementation For Linksys Routers, Matthew Duder

Computer Science and Software Engineering

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a signaling protocol used for network-based media interaction. SIP Servers are required to process and forward requests and responses between end clients. Once connection setup is complete, the end clients utilize some other protocol (such as Real-Time Transport Protocol) to complete their task.

Such a server may be implemented and installed on routers. Unlike the SIP protocol, however, router development currently remains without standards. For this project, Linux-based residential-grade routers had their kernels replaced with an open source version. This allowed for installation of open-source development, such as a SIP server implementation.

This project led ...
