Deploying Kamailio with Puppet

November 24th, 2014

Giacomo Vacca from Truphone, one of the very active community members promoting our project, has published a blog post on how to deploy Kamailio using Puppet.

Puppet describes itself as configuration management system that allows you to define the state of your IT infrastructure, then automatically enforces the correct state. Whether you’re managing just a few servers or thousands of physical and virtual machines, Puppet automates tasks that sysadmins often do manually, freeing up time and mental space so sysadmins can work on the projects that deliver greater business value.

Such knowledge is extremely useful and can save precious time to everyone handling installations of Kamailio and can be extended to manage the deployment of other components.

As a project, we welcome everyone that shares its experience and expertise, being more than happy to publish news about similar article and even host them if that makes it more convenient for the author. Do not hesitate to contact us!

SIPit 31 – Nice, France

September 29th, 2014

EventsThe 31st edition of SIPit – SIP Interoperability Testing event – starts in Nice, France, organized by SIP Forum and hosted by ETSI. Kamailio is participating in the tests as well as running as part of the SIPit infrastructure network in the automated self-tests.

Spanning across all the week, Sep 29 – Oct 03, 2014, the event is the place where SIP implementers of various products, from phones, libraries to gateways, servers or testing tools, meet for testing products with each other or in multi-parties test scenarios.

Along the years, our project was a frequent participant, no matter the name was at that time SER, OpenSER or Kamailio. This edition, Daniel-Constantin Mierla from Asipto and Olle E. Johansson from Edvina are there, making sure that the upcoming major version 4.2.0 is rock solid, ready to roll out in production once released. They might be less active on mailing lists, but for the benefits of all, heavily testing and stressing Kamailio.

Watch the twitter feeds for @miconda, @oej and @kamailioproject for fresh notes from the fields!
