This project is about helping the SIP providers in their effort of deploying SIP Presence - about overcoming the interoperability problems between the server and client SIP entities, about giving access to SIP presence for the masses.
Right now, the SIP world is segmented into Platform Vendors (companies/projects building SIP servers), into UAC Vendors (companies/projects building SIP user-agents) and providers (companies offering SIP based services to the end users).
In a joined effort, Nokia and OpenSIPS Solutions teams worked out the difficulties and produced comprehensive documentation the providers looking forward to implement and deploy full SIP presence services :
Since the number of people using the VoIP client on their phone is growing (as SIP mobility), NOKIA focused more on a valuable extra feature in S60 SIP client - the presence support, so that users can set availability status messages and see the status of their contacts. More than that, since privacy is very important and users are accustomed to control the access of others to their information, NOKIA put in their client XCAP privacy rules support.
To ensure that this new features will get traction from both SIP users and providers, the project deliverables were focused around building a prove-of-concept platform and writing a manual on how such a platform can be built.
The platform consists of two components - an OpenSIPS server configured as a presence server and an OpenXCAP server.
You can find here step by step tutorial on how to set these up. The tutorial is written so that with minimal knowledge you can successfully set up an advanced SIP presence server with XCAP permission rules.
The experiment the Presence feeling, you can use the VoIP service offered on the OpenSIPS project.
First you must create an account via the registration page. Then you must login and configure your account to use XCAP for privacy rules. For this you must tick the Enable XCAP check box under the tab my presence.
If you're done setting up the account, you should get a client that has presence with XCAP privacy rules support. A soft client is probably more accessible (ex: eyebeam and bria, sipclient). You must configure the client to register with the account name that you've chosen and use XCAP storage for presence privacy. The XCAP URL is http://opensips.org:443/xcap-root.
For testing you should try to block and unblock contacts from the address book and check if they can see your presence status or not.
