So How does SIP Work?
The "Session Initiation Protocol" (SIP) is an ASCII based signal protocol. In comparison to its previous version
H.323 SIP is a modern and easy to implement protocol. H.323 and SIP are incompatible between each other. The SIP is
based on the question-and-answer principle. The principle of a client such as the X-Lite PC to Phone Software places an application which will
be answered by a server (e.g. Nikotel, Pulver etc.). In doing so SIP clients will be identified by a SIP URL. Other
advantages of SIP include that it can be used as a transport protocol based on TCP and furthermore UDP. Whereas
H.323 uses TCP only.
