This page will serve as a repository of information of information related to IPv6 and communications protocols based on IP, including voice-over-IP (VoIP), unified communications (UC). real-time communications (RTC) and the use of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).
(NOTE: Need to include reference here to how WebRTC is designed to work with IPv6.)
- IPv6 and SIP – Myth or Reality? (SIPNOC 2013 – April 24, 2013)
- SIP and IPv6 – Can They Get Along? (SIPNOC 2012 – June 26, 2012)
There is a good amount of discussion about IPv6 happening in various IPv6 communities around the Internet. More specific discussion about IPv6 and IP communications is happening here:
- SIP Forum IPv6 Task Group mailing list (open to the public)
- SIPv6 Facebook page and Twitter account (projects started by Olle Johansson)
We are aware of the following softphones that support IPv6:
- Jitsi (open source) – see our interview with project lead Emil Ivov
- Linphone (open source)
- Counterpath Bria (commercial)
Beyond softphones, we are aware of the following equipment that supports IPv6.
(NOTE: Links need to be added, ideally to IPv6-specific pages. Also, it is worth considering whether this list should be moved to a separate page.)
