New softphone in Google Play

We are happy and proud to invite you to try our updated sample sip softphone for Android. The main updates are better video  and secure connection support. The latest softphone version is available at Google Play.

SIP DLL SDK

We often receive the following questions about our ABTO Software’s VoIP SIP SDK for Windows:

  • is it implemented as native SIP DLL SDK or as ActiveX (COM) object.
  • how to integrate SDK into own application.

The answer is that VoIP SIP SDK for Windows is implemented as ActiveX simple object and compiled into native dll. It means that SDK can be used as ActiveX (COM) component which requires registration on client computer via regsvr32 tool. But it is not a single way. The SDK also exports methods and can be used as native SIP DLL SDK without registration. Standard SDK setup contains source code of both implementations.

So, it means that VoIP SIP SDK for Windows can be used in your app via ActiveX interface and via native DLL interface (exported functions as SIP DLL SDK).

SIP ZRTP client

ABTO Software’s VoIP SIP SDK is proud to present a new feature – ZRTP support for mobile platforms: iOS and Android.Using our SDK you are able to build custom sip zrtp client for iOS and Android.

Currently realization allows ZRTP secure peer-to-peer connection. Also it works in the situation when sip server does not influence the messages that it transfers. We are working on other cases of such connections.

To try this feature and purchase our SDK please proceed to the contact form or download the corresponding SDK for iOS and Android.

Early media use

You can use VoIP SIP SDK to make a custom intercom.
Obviously you can make a connection to communicate before you open the door.
However, one of the basic features of this solution is to be able to see the person near door before actually making a connection.
This feature is typically called early media.

How to implement it for Android:

when received incoming call in Android app invoke method:
phone.answerCall(183, true);

This method sends to remote side SIP request “183 Session progress+SDP”,
which allows start sending audio\video in both directions, but call still not answered.
Then you can answer or reject call.
If you have more questions please contact us.

STUN use

We are receiving many questions about STUN use.

STUN means Session Traversal Utilities for  NAT (Network Address Translator).

When using STUN is a good idea: If you do not receive video and audio because remote side can not send media. The reason could be that SIP sends local IP address. So you can try to enable STUN and input one of the following settings:

  • stun.sipgate.net
  • stun.voxgratia.org
  • stun.ipns.com

If you have more questions please contact us.
