How Can SIP Compete with Skype? The Best of Both Worlds:

Jeff Pulver - The Jeff Pulver Blog



Skype is without doubt the most successful VoIP download in the history of the Internet and Skype has established themselves as the biggest VoIP service provider on a global scale. Skype has the fastest adoption rate ever recorded. We have to ask ourselves why Skype is working so well.
So I have discussed with Henry if and how the SIP community can leverage SIP to make the best of both worlds into something that is greater than the sum of both. This would imply using SIP in both client-server and peer-to-peer mode, using the IETF standards for NAT traversal, auditable security, providing equal or better than PSTN sound quality, presence, IM and last but not least providing the ultimate user experience overall.
We would like such software and SIP devices to be compatible with the Free World Dialup service and invite interested developers across the industry to look at our Request for Information (RFI) and send their question, replies and comments to SIP-UA-RFI@pulver.com
Henry will talk about this topic also at the SIP Summit in Chicago on Tuesday at 9:00-9:30 am, for details see: http://www.pulver.com/sipsummit05/schedule.html.
