Kamailio – the IMS Getting Started Box

Fri, 02/12/2016 - 12:11
Wondered how you can quickly start your own IMS platform? Thanks to Franz Edler, from University of Applied Sciences, Vienna, Austria, a set of configuration files as well as a WMware Debian image were made available for those that want to start building an IMS platform using Kamailio. Read this documentation written by Franz (original version in pdf format can be downloaded from here)!Kamailio IMS in a BoxHere is a stripped-down version of Kamailio-IMS system – it means that the IMS functions have been reduced to the core functions, all advanced functions like NAT, RTP-relay, antiflood, capturing, dispatching etc… have been omitted (disabled). It is a good starting point for educational purposes. All three servers (P-CSCF, I-CSCF and S-CSCF) and the HSS (from original Fraunhofer OpenIMScore) are running on one machine. The clients are typically provided by the host system.The additional functions which are included in the existing config-files are disabled in a first step and may be added (enabled) gradually. Also an application server (IMS-AS) may be easily added as a further Kamailio instance. This is perfect for educational purpose, if you want to become an IMS expert.The benefit is that all these servers and function are running on one physical machine. There is a VMware image available for this configuration and also the log-file and all relevant config-files in a separate zip-file. Now you can start immediately with the VMware image or – as I always suggest – do it yourself (compile and configure) by following the steps documented in the log-file.The figure below shows the configuration I used:All parameters and passwords used are documented in the log-file.If anything is missing or if you have hints for correction or improvement, just let me know via the sr-users@lists.sip-router.org mailing list.All files are available via dropbox:Good luck, FranzNR: the version above was slightly edited for web and few more explicit details.Read previous articles about Kamailio and IMS!If you build some specific systems using Kamailio and want to share the details with the community, do not hesitate to contact us, we will be more than happy to post an article about it on Kamailio web site!Thanks for flying Kamailio and looking forward to meeting many of you at Kamailio World 2016!

Kamailio v4.4 – Development Frozen

Thu, 02/04/2016 - 17:26
The development (master) branch of Kamailio enters now in pre-release phase for version 4.4.0. Therefore, no new feature are going to be pushed to master until a dedicated branch for 4.4 is created (in about 4 weeks or so). The full release should be out by mid of March 2016.If you are a registered developer and in doubt to push or not a commit to master, push it first on a personal branch (or attach to an email) and discuss it on sr-dev. The new modules can be a bit more dynamic if there is need to get them to the right shape (e.g., like decision to rename functions, parameters or adjust database structure).We hope to get many people involved in testing, to reach a stable state before releasing 4.4.0. If you want to get involved and need assistance, don’t hesitate to write to mailing lists. Based on my quick review, there were no major changes to old core components, meaning we should have preserved quite a good level of stability overall.Help with updating the wiki page for migration from 4.3 to 4.4 as well as what is new in 4.4 is very appreciated. We will post updates about them very soon.Many thanks to everyone involved in development of 4.4 and the early testers that played with master branch so far.Thank you for flying Kamailio!Looking forward to meeting many of you at Kamailio World 2016!

Kamailio Development Workshop, Feb 2016

Thu, 01/21/2016 - 00:21
Last edition of Kamailio Development Workshop happened about three years ago. Several people asked about it from time to time, therefore I thought of trying to organize a new edition. Rather short term by now due to various constraints, so the plan is to do it again in Alicante, Spain, during February 15-16, 2016.More details are available at:Besides spending 2 days digging into Kamailio C code, such event is also good for discovering and sharing development resources among participants, as well as meeting people from community — at the previous editions we met for first time with Victor Seva, Vicente Hernando and Seudin Kasumovic, which in turn contributed a lot of Kamailio code afterwards. It will be also testing phase for upcoming major release v4.4.0, maybe we can plan some stress testing session on site.Right now the goal is to see if there is any interest in such event in order to nail down organizing it or not. Should anyone consider to participate, write an email to:registration [at] kamailio.orgThank you for flying Kamailio!

2016 Ahead

Sat, 01/02/2016 - 12:15
The 2016 has just started and I am really looking forward to it.

The big celebration of 15 years of development for Kamailio project happens this year.  Although has changed the names few time, along the years SIP Express Router (SER) and OpenSER, it is a real performance to stay atop and continue the development at high pace for such long time in the open source environment.



The Kamailio World Conference, scheduled for May 18-20, 2016, in Berlin, will take care to organize a great party for this celebration, expecting many of the relevant developers in the history of the project, which will share the experiences and the impact in their careers because of being involved in the open source project. Be sure you don't miss this edition!


One of the first milestones in 2016 is the release of Kamailio v4.4.0, a new major version, which will bring as usual several new modules, plus improvements and new features in the existing components.

The first event where we expect to get a consistent group of Kamailio developers and friends is Fosdem 2016, in Brussels.

With a continuous increase of activity in the community of Kamailio project, I expect plenty of new ideas and challenges to work with along 2016! Stay tuned and keep an eye on this blog for updates!

Happy New Year!

While owning the domain miconda.eu for quite some time, never found the time to set it up. With the winter holidays giving sort of a break, I pointed blog.miconda.eu to my blog (here) at by-miconda.blogspot.com.

The main domain miconda.eu is pointed to about.me/miconda . I plan to make more use of this domain (email?!?), let's see if 2016 brings more spare time ...

Enjoy the winter holidays!

New Kamailio Module: cfgt

Tue, 12/15/2015 - 22:56
Victor Seva from Sipwise has published a new module forKamailio, named cfgt. The module is to be part of the next major release of Kamailio – v4.4.0, expected to be out on early spring of 2016.The module is useful for unit testing, to compare the results of the Kamailio configuration file routing logic. The report of execution is in JSON format, making it easy to analyse. Among the contents of the report can be the values for variables used in the configuration file.You have to make your test scenario (e.g., using sipp), send the traffic to Kamailio and then check if the report contains expected results.The documentation of the module is available at:

    The functionality of the module is rather small by now, but Victor is committed to add more in the near future, including examples of how to use it. Stay tuned and keep an eye on kamailio.org for updates!

    Proposing a New Logo for the Kamailio Project

    Thu, 12/03/2015 - 13:56
    During the Kamailio IRC level meeting this summer, a need for refreshing the logotype of the project was discussed. The current (embedded in the upper right corner of kamailio.org main page) is based on the one used for during the former OpenSER name of the project, with changes of the text to reflect the SIP Router and Kamailio names, somehow not longer very balanced, lacking good quality and high resolution graphics. The participants agreed that a refresh would be better than keeping that version.One option was to reuse the graphics from Kamailio World Conference logo, simply with Kamailio name. It was used even before as alternative logo by various peoples and companies.We now want to finish this process and we considered also the possibility of a new logo design. Thanks to Asipto and their deal with 99Designs, we ran a design contest and see if someone proposes an interesting logotype. Based on the result of the contest, followed by discussions on management group and the people interested in updating the logotype, we are proposing a new logo for the project:During the next days we are expecting feedback from community, especially if it looks too similar with other logos they know or if they like it or not. Based on that, a final decision will be taken and either we will switch to the new proposed logo or keep looking for a new one.Join the discussion about the new logo on users mailing listsr-users@lists.sip-router.org .2D and 3D variants in different formats, as well as some combinations with few pictures, can be found at:As a preview, a few variants are embedded here:

      Kamailio Syntax Highlighting for the Atom Editor

      Tue, 12/01/2015 - 13:52
      Atom is an open source editor developed by Github. One of its useful features is ability to preview the markdown files while editing them. The Kamailio source tree includes a few such markdown files (e.g., README.md in the root folder). They are nicely displayed when browsing the GIT repository at github.com.Another feature would be auto-completion suggestion based on the content of the edited file, so, for example, if you define a route block, then its name appears when adding the statement to execute that route.A syntax highlighting package for kamailio.cfg has been made available at:Information about how to install it are available in the readme at the above link.For now, it does rather basic matching of configuration file elements, still relevant to make them easier to spot. Contributions to enhance it are more than welcome!A screenshot with a part of default configuration:.Enjoy!

      Building Kamailio in Docker

      Thu, 11/26/2015 - 22:00
      Thanks to Victor Seva from Sipwise, the Travis-CI jobs for building Kamailio were upgraded to useDocker containers.A part of continuous integration process for Kamailio project, the builds are triggered by commits to master and stable branches, helping to detect compilation issues on different OS distributions, which typically happen due to different versions of libraries.The bonus is that the same build system can be used locally by anyone, being it developer or VoIP engineer. Quite useful in cases when one wants to backport patches or develop its own extensions.You can read the description of the build system as well as get the scripts from the source code of Kamailio, in the folder test/travis-ci. You can browse the content of the folder online at:Enjoy!
