sip_phoneFirst of all, what does SIP stands for?

SIP, which is the “Session Initiation Protocol,” in IP telephony a commonly used protocol.

SIP is a request-response protocol that closely resembles two other Internet protocols, HTTP and SMTP; consequently, SIP sits comfortably alongside Internet applications. Using SIP, telephony becomes another web application and integrates easily into other Internet services. SIP is a simple toolkit that service providers can use to build converged voice and multimedia services.

Due to the fact that each SIP client is different, we only specify the following parameters:

  • SIP Domain:
  • SIP Proxy:
  • (Standard) SIP Port: 5060 (used both for UDP and TCP)
  • Username: <your at registered email>
  • Password: <your FriendCaller password>
