Mobicents meets the Community at JUDCon and JBoss World !

Hi all,

I just got back from Boston where I attended JUDCon, the free JBoss Users & Developers Conference and spoke there about Mobicents. Since the attendance was pretty new to Telco and Communications 2.0 features, the talk was not a technical one but rather showcasing multiple demos, notably the Jopr is talking demo and examples on how you can improve your applications with Mobicents by adding Voice, Video, Presence, IM, SMS, data to enrich the user experience, processes within your company, the customer relationship etc... I went over the Mobicents projects - SIP Servlets, JAIN SLEE, Media Server, SIP Presence Service and Diameter and how they were used in the different demos showcased at the beginning of the presentation

The presentation was pretty well received and there was a long Q&A at the end with most of the people from the audience pretty interested asking questions and thinking on how they could apply it to their businesses. It was one of my best audiences ever !

I will try to record the presentation and upload it for those of you who couldn't attend.

I attended a few presentations during JUDCon and all talks and speakers were top notch quality and very interesting, definitely a conference you want to attend if you're a JBoss user or developper.

Later that day happened the JUDCon Hackfest where I got a chance to hack on a Tomcat container for Arquillian

This work will be used as a basis for refactoring our Mobicents SIP Servlets testsuite based on Arquillian and ShrinkWrap and expose it as a way to test SIP Servlets applications in a single Junit test. So JUDCon was definitely a great conference for me and Mobicents as a whole !

Next was JBoss World

There I got to meet multiple JBoss Communications Platform (JBCP - which is the product derived from Mobicents) and Mobicents users.

Notably OKI Japan with whom we had interesting talks and led to the announcement of their Spring Sip Servlets Framework - SSF contribution to Mobicents and their official joining as a Mobicents contributor

I had interesting talks with our friends at Angel.com and got to see them at the great JBoss party

For me and Mobicents, both JUDCon and JBoss World were definitely awesome, when working from home all year long I can't express how priceless it is to meet the community in flesh and blood.

See ya all next year !


  1. Is the sip unit test for a sip servlet availble now from mobicent?/

  2. @Sri yes you can reuse Mobicents Sip Servlets testsuite for your own puprose, it is already in use by some of our community users.
