i'm curious if there is any spec in the voip protocol suite that
allows one to maintain a call while changing networks?
what i want to do is setup a softphone on an android phone. however,
this won't work very well if i can't switch from wifi -> 3g -> wifi (i
doubt wifi -> wifi is possible because of hardware limitations). my
alternative is to get asterisk to put the call on hold and play an
automated message if a reconnection (and unhold) takes >1 second. i
would expect that ip telephony would allow for some type of hopping
though, i just don't know what to google for?
This functionality can be done in many ways. This is demonstrated in
the Asterisk SCF project during a demo, check youtube.
so, i see they made the asterisk server fail over by unplugging a node
and that's cool but not what i need. what i want is a way to keep a
connection with an asterisk server (or any other preferably free voip
server) when one path fails. this wouldn't be an issue if i could
garante a sip gateway at each ap (wifi or 3g).
... or did i miss something?
You missed everything
