SIMPLE - Purpose

Purpose

SIMPLE applies SIP to the problems of:

  • registering for presence information and receiving notifications when such events occur, for example when a user logs in or comes back from lunch;
  • sending short messages, analogous to SMS or two-way paging;
  • managing a session of real-time messages between two or more participants.

Implementations of the SIMPLE based protocols can be found in SIP Softphones and also in SIP Hardphones.

Famous quotes containing the word purpose:

    Our purpose in founding the city was not to make any one class in it surpassingly happy, but to make the city as a whole as happy as possible.
    Socrates (469–399 B.C.)

    A major misunderstanding of child rearing has been the idea that meeting a child’s needs is an end in itself, for the purpose of the child’s mental health. Mothers have not understood that this is but one step in social development, the goal of which is to help a child begin to consider others. As a result, they often have not considered their children but have instead allowed their children’s reality to take precedence, out of a fear of damaging them emotionally.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)

    Since I do purpose to marry, I will think nothing to any purpose that
    the world can say against it; and therefore never flout at me for what I have said against it; for man is a giddy thing, and this is my conclusion.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
