Sun & Ericcson: Keep it SIMPLE

At JavaOne, Ericcson and Sun announced that they have teamed up on open source IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) functionality through the Glassfish project. In the Communications Suite world, this means having SIP functionality natively available for use in Sun Java System Instant Messaging.

The SIP application server donated by Ericsson has become the SailFin project. And here's an example of an application, Conference Manager, which was developed in Sun Labs.

One hopes that this development produces some exciting new SIP applications, both in the community and within Sun.

Comments:

It's really cool to see Sun & Ericsson working on that. Ericsson is really on the forefront of bursting into the market in Cisco's space, and I really wish Ericsson well if this sort of thing is to be an ongoing trend with them. Ericsson/Tandberg/Marconi/Redback is a great combo, and with community involvement, it's that much better.
