15
+
16
+ SIP Express Router (SER) is an industrial-strength, free VoIP 
17
+server based on the session initiation protocol (SIP RFC2543-bis). 
18
+It is engineered to power IP telephony infrastructures up to large 
19
+scale. The server keeps track of users, sets up VoIP sessions, 
20
+relays instant messages and creates space for new plug-in applications. 
21
+Its proven interoperability guarantees seamless integration with 
22
+components from other vendors, eliminating the risk of a single-vendor 
23
+trap. It has successfully participated in various interoperability 
24
+tests in which it worked with the products of other leading SIP vendors.
25
+
26
+The SIP Express Router enables a flexible plug-in model for new 
27
+applications: Third parties can easily link their plug-ins with 
28
+the server code and provide thereby advanced and customized services. 
29
+In this way, plug-ins such as SNMP support, RADIUS accounting,
30
+or SMS gateway have already been developed and are provided as 
31
+advanced features. Other modules are underway: Presence server,
32
+firewall control, and more.
33
+
34
+Its performance and robustness allows it to serve millions of users and 
35
+accommodate needs of very large operators. With a $3000 dual-CPU, the 
36
+SIP Express Router is able to power IP telephony services in an area 
37
+as large as the Bay Area during peak hours. Even on an IPAQ PDA, the server 
38
+withstands 150 calls per second (CPS)! The server has been powering our 
39
+iptel.org free SIP site withstanding heavy daily load that is further 
40
+increasing with the popularity of Microsoft's Messenger.  
41
+
42
+The SIP Express Router is extremely configurable to allow the creation of 
43
+various routing and admission policies as well as setting up new and 
44
+customized services. Its configurability allows it to serve many roles: 
45
+network security barrier, application server, or PSTN gateway guard for 
46
+example.
47
+
48
+
49
+II. Feature List
50
+
51
+Based on the latest standards, the SIP Express Router (SER) includes 
52
+support for registrar, proxy and redirect mode. Further it acts as 
53
+an application server with support for CPL, instant messaging and 
54
+presence (IM&P) including a 2G/SMS gateway, a call control policy 
55
+language, call number translation, private dial plans and accounting, 
56
+authorization and authentication (AAA) services. SER runs on Sun/Solaris, 
57
+PC/Linux, IPAQ/Linux platforms and supports  both IPv4 and IPv6.

+III. About iptel.org
61
+
62
+iptel.org is a know-how company spun off from Germany's national 
63
+research company FhG Fokus. One of the first SIP implementations ever, 
64
+low-QoS enhancements, interoperability tests and VoIP-capable firewall 
65
+control concepts are examples of well-known FhG's work.
66
+
67
+iptel.org continues to keep this know-how leadership in SIP. 
68
+The access rate of the company's site, a well-known source of 
69
+technological information, is a best proof of interest. Thousands 
70
+of hits come every day from the whole Internet.
