Communiceren verandert met bereikbaarheidsinformatie

Verschenen in Automatisering Gids nr. 40, 2008

De informatie of iemand bereikbaar is en hoe, verandert de komende tijd ingrijpend. Volgens experts wijzigt daardoor ook het gebruik van communicatiemiddelen. ‘Presence’-informatie is in basale vorm bekend van sociale netwerken, instant messaging en een aantal openbare VoIP-aanbieders. Dit zijn echter bedrijfseigen systemen en de informatie over bereikbaarheid is nog beperkt.

Twee standaarden, SIMPLE en XMPP, brengen daar verandering in. De consequenties komen op 10 oktober aan de orde op het congres ‘Future of Presence’, georganiseerd door onder meer de ISOC in de Koninklijke Bibliotheek in Den Haag.

P2PSIP and the IMS: Can they complement each other?

June 2008, NXTComm/Las Vegas

Peer-to-Peer Sesssion Initiation Protocol (P2PSIP) provides a conceptually simple, standards-based mechanism to distribute functionality, leveraging the power of clusters of devices, rather than a single centralized box.  At the heart of P2PSIP is a notion of providing a distributed "fabric" of devices that are able to provide these same services and functionality with little or no centralized infrastructure. P2P systems do not eliminate work that would be done by a centralized device in traditional client-server architecture, but rather distribute that work differently, pushing the functionality to the edge. As a result, there some advantages to a P2P architecture (for example improved scalability and reliability) and some areas where a conventional CS system may be better (for example number of hops involved to route a message).

Euroweb deploys SIP Thor

Euroweb Romania upgraded its SIP voice network (Eurovoice) to a distributed, multiple-site architecture located in three cities, Bucharest, Timisoara and Iasi. By deploying this self-organizing architecture is now possible to increase the availability of the provided voice services, by eliminating downtimes related to communications' packet-loss or Internet connectivity failures. The voice traffic can now be automatically rerouted between any of the mentioned location, in a short notice and without major engineering works which were necessary prior to this upgrade.
