Motivation

-

-SIP is the most used open standard for telecommunication over IP, it is -standarized by RFC 3261. As more -and more devices like notebooks carry microphones and a permanent -internet connection with them (WLAN), it is to be expected that users -will want to use their existing environment for phoning as well.

-

-Especially the last mentioned feature (calling by click using the -address book) is an extremely useful capability, as address books of -many Thunderbird users already contain phone numbers. These ordinary -phone numbers can be called over a SIP provider's gateway. -
