About Kamailio (OpenSER) SIP Server project

Kamailio is an Open Source SIP Server released under GPL, able to handle thousands of call setups per second. Among features: asynchronous TCP, UDP and SCTP, secure communication via TLS for VoIP (voice, video), SIMPLE instant messaging and pressence, ENUM, least cost routing, load balancing, routing fail-over, accounting, authentication and authorization against MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, Radius, LDAP, XMLRPC control interface, SNMP monitoring, IMS/VoLTE extensions, WebRTC. It can be used to build large VoIP servicing platforms or to scale up SIP-to-PSTN gateways, PBX systems or media servers like Asteriskâ„¢, FreeSWITCHâ„¢ or SEMS. The application is written in C for Linux/Unix platforms and focuses on performance, flexibility and security. In addition to C, extensions can be written in Lua, JavaScript, Perl or Python.

On the 28th of July, 2008, due to trademark issues related to OPENSER word, the OpenSER project changed the name in KAMAILIO. The wiki page for the old project name is still available at: OpenSER.

On Nov 04, 2008, Kamailio and SIP Express Router have started the SIP Router Project.
