Flexisip is a new SIP proxy server easy to install, configure and maintain which offers all the features necessary to deploy a SIP service optimized for mobile applications.

Flexisip is a SIP proxy server implementation compliant to RFC3261, written in C++11.

The server has the following key features:

  • Transports: SIP/UDP, SIP/TCP and SIP/TLS
  • NAT aware with built-in media relay module and stun server
  • Digest authentication based on external SQL password database or static password file
  • Registrar
  • Routing based on registrar database or static route file, with forking
  • Push notifications systems for reliably notifying mobile apps of incoming calls or messages

This new ZRTP implementation uses the cryptography functions of polarSSL, already used in Linphone, which was already integrated in Linphone.

 

OpenH264 integration

Since Cisco has taken its H.264 implementation, and open sourced it under BSD license terms, we are pleased to announce that Linphone now integrates OpenH264.

Python wrapper

Linphone introduces Python as new programing language to its voip sdk. A Python module for liblinphone is now available to create SIP user-agent applications with both media and call control capabilities. It brings the powerful liblinphone SDK to the easy to use python programing language.

 

Linphone Website redesign

Our website www.linphone.org has been designed with a fresh new look and user-friendly navigation. One of our main goals was to build a user-friendly and simple to navigate site. The new design allows the users to quickly find the contents thanks to its low hierarchical structure.
The technical corner section contains information about our software and libraries including advanced features, source code and documentation. We hope that you will enjoy browsing our new site, and finding what your are looking for.
