[Freeswitch-dev] freeswitch as a standard-alone sip server

Respectfully the much work you refer to that we have to do is mostly to seek
out and correct the page where you gentlemen were both misinformed about

FreeSWITCH supports not only inbound and outbound registration but
enterprise scaled simultaneous instances of a complete SIP UA where each
instance can be in charge of it's own registration entities.

Inbound registrations support multiple simultaneous registrations to the
same account and full subscription presence with SLA and BLF on several
popular SIP phones.

Sofia is quite threaded and our sofia endpoint can easily sustain hundreds
of calls per second with each call in it's own thread.

To teach you something, there is no such thing as "thread safe".  All code
needs to be able to exist in a threaded environment to have any useful
purpose.  This does not mean trying to use mutexes and threads on your
behalf.  It means to design your api so that whatever code is using it can
implement it in a threaded environment.

Our SIP module also does SRTP TLS SIP and wide and narrow band audio.

Below is our spec sheet that is listed twice on our homepage in the top 10%
of the page.

Can you please show me where you got the information that we do not support
registrations so I may correct it because clearly that document is in excess
of 2 years old since we have supported registration since at least 2006
(about 8 months into the projects start from scratch)
