Video Interview: Emil Ivov about how the Jitsi softphone works with IPv6 and DNSSEC

How does the Jitsi softphone work with IPv6? And what role could DNSSEC play with VoIP? At IETF86 earlier this month, I sat down with Emil Ivov, project leader of the Jitsi Project to talk about a wide range of topics including how Jitsi got started and why it does so much with IPv6 (interesting reason!), what they are looking to do with Jitsi now, the role of DNSSEC and why they added that support to Jitsi... and much, much more... I quite enjoyed talking to Emil and the Jitsi project is certainly one that I will continue to watch - and use!

VUC Today: The Jitsi VoIP Softphone - Join The Call To Learn More!

JitsiWhat is new with the Jitsi softphone these days? What new capabilities does it have as it continues to expand its support of SIP, XMPP and other protocols?

I've long been a fan and user of Jitsi, in part because it supports IPv6 and is the only VoIP softphone I know of right now that supports DNSSEC, something I'm continuing to experiment with, so I'm looking forward to today's "VoIP Users Conference (VUC) call at 12 noon US Eastern - about 2.5 hours from now.

You can watch it live via a Google+ Hangout On Air, or call in (potentially using Jitsi!) via:

  • sip:[email protected]
  • +1 (646) 475-2098
  • Skype:vuc.me

There's also an IRC backchannel where links are shared, questions are answered and other comments occur.

And for those of you using Google+, there is a Google+ Event you can join.

It should be a good show! (And yes, you can watch it / listen to it later...)
