No SIP in Sametime 7.5?

by Volker Weber

I know this is an awful slide. The boxes represent components that make up the "next" Sametime client. But this slide contains an interesting piece of information: "SIP ... not supported in Sametime 7.5". What does this mean beyond "no voice"?

There's a box labelled "Telephony". I wonder how this could be related to SIP ;-)

Perhaps coming post 7.5?

The RTC gateway isn't in the beta, so maybe this is what it means ?

When reading Telephony think CTI.

CTI surely doesn't give anyone the thrills in 2006…

I think what they mean is no SIP in the 7.5 client (the focus of this release). SIP will be supported in the client in 8.0 timeframe I believe. Of course the diagram above does not look like it is a pure client diagram which is odd if what I say is true...

The diagram is a client side diagram. When talking about SIP mostly a SIP gateway is mentioned. So anything is possible.

Some points of clarification. The Sametime 7.5 client does not come with a SIP stack. A SIP stack can be added as a plug-in, and will be done so by IBM in the future. In a future reelase, the Sametime Server and Client will be able to use SIP as its native protocol.

With Sametime 7.5 connectivity to other IM systems will be via the forthcoming Real-Time Collaboration Gateway, which will support the Sametime protocol, IETF ratified SIP, and other variants of SIP (such as that required to connect to AOL).

Telephony/voice integration in Sametime 7.5 can be done in a number of ways. The embedded Voice Chat can be used to talk to other Sametime users (PC-to-PC), with up to 5 people in the conversation. The telephony APIs and SPIs can be used by partners to connect to their systems, with products in market and/or demoed by companies such as Avaya, Siemens, Nortel, and others. And IBM and Cisco have demonstated a Sametime softphone plug-in that talks SIP to Cisco backend.
