push to open-source VOIP

Several IP telephony veterans are banding together to organize the first major open-source community concentrating on VOIP tehnology. Pingtel Corporation is spearheading the project by releasing its SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) software platform into the open-source world. Several projects, including Vivida, used by Vonage, and Resiprocate, which provides a SIP stack and tool kit, will be used to initiate the session. The open-source enterprises might be too early in development to affect the market, but IP telephony staffs have shown interest. The release of intellectual properties into open-source will shift Pingtel's business model to sell a subscription service.
